    Is there a command line utility which will add IPTC data to JPEG images,
    without recompressing them?

    I tried Imagemagick with the following command, but I'm not sure if this

    convert picture.jpg +profile 8BIM +comment -profile 8BIMTEXT:iptc.txt

    where iptc.txt is the following:

    2#120#Caption="Fruit stalls, India, Rajasthan, Jaipur"
    2#105#Headline="Fruit stalls, India, Rajasthan, Jaipur"
    2#80#Byline="Alfred Molon"

    I don't know about command line, but IrfanView will let you edit IPTC in
    batch mode. All changes are lossless, since it's written to the
    metadata areas of the file and the images aren't actually altered.
