Author Topic: Exif data display  (Read 1162 times)

This new sparkly server gives us a few extra options, that were rather difficult to implement before. One of them was the ability to automatically display exif data on uploaded images.
So I've this morning enabled this feature, as I think exif data is a great way for people to see what setup was used to create shot ;)

Example below ;)

save for web kills EXIF nicely :)

LOL yes, many people strip the exif when editing, but quite a lot don't. I know most of mine are stripped, when I use "save for web".
Most of the BIG TIME photo sites (like flickr etc) display the exif (if there), as it can give good pointers to those wanting to recreate a shot, or to learn how it was done. Thought it was a worth while feature to add here, as we are essentially here to learn from each other ;)

Great idea Chris. I never strip EXIF. Can't see the point.
A 'Veteran' -- whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve -- is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to his country for an amount of 'up to, and including his life.'

As a complete novice I can see merit in displaying 'How it was done' info. I can also imagine some paranoiacs wanting to jealously guard their masterpieces and originality.

I've been using the Google add on to display exif details but find it a bit temperamental. This is good Chris, thanks.

I try and keep my EXIF intact. It's surprising how often I look at how I created a shot.

The firefox add on is excellent. Only two things against it - if you're not on Firefox it's no use, and if the EXIF is stripped it's no use either!!!

Yep, there sure is. You just select "ALL" in meta data options in "Save for Web"

I switched to that method of saving for web, after discovering that my Canon very kindly embeds my details and web address in to the exif for me :mrgreen:
That must make Canons much better than Nikons :lol:  :lol:  :lol:
