You can use exiftool, <https://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/>.

To add a comment to the file with:

	$ exiftool burt-reynolds.jpg -Comment='Look at Burt Reynolds in a
Turtle Neck'
	    1 image files updated

and then extra it with:

	$ exiftool burt-reynolds.jpg -Comment
	Comment : Look at Burt Reynolds in a Turtle Neck
