[D2006/NET] Writing EXIF information to JPG files.

Yeah, this has been asked before here. Back in 2003 to be precise. The Q was PAQ'ed after a refund.
There's http://www.hoerstemeier.com/jpeg.htm with some component but the page hasn't been updated in years and the sourcecode in it is about a decade old now. So for some reason, I feel uncomfortable about using it.
Then of course is the problem that I would like a .NET solution, although I can live with a WIN32 for the time being. What I need is a solution that allows me to modify the EXIF information in a JPG file without even modifying the JPG image itself. To be more precise, I happen to have a digital camera and am working on a more interesting way to archive them. Thus I want to read the EXIF information from every picture, which will be stored in a database and also be able to add a simple copyright notice to every picture.

I'm not in a hurry for an answer, btw. It's just something on my wishlist. :-) Still, 500 points for the person who provides me the best solution!

Well, for now it's fine. :-) Am going to see how much work it is to convert dExif to .NET, which is probably a lot of work but so far I haven't found any other solution either...
