Does anyone know how I would go about extracting EXIF data from an image as it is uploaded and inputting this information into the CMS?

You'd need to decorate the Image class and customise the 'onBeforeWrite' function.

Using exif_read_data to then get the information and save it to the relevant db fields you create.
