Exif Information - Included With Uploads?

Fri Jun 17, 2005 4:47 am

With the prevalence of digital cameras, most recording comprehensive EXIF information, would it be worthwhile incorporating such information - including camera/lens types used - into the information supplied with each picture? This way the less experienced among us could get a general idea of what settings make what type of picture.

Just a thought!

That's a very good suggestion. I can still remember the good old days when you could save the photos on your hard drive & view the EXIF data. Camera model, lens, focal length, f-stop, metering mode ... it tells very much how a picture was taken. The photographer also doesn't have to answer that much e-mails. Big grin

I think the EXIF data were deleted because there were problems with some browsers. I don't think if this is technically possible, but how about extracting the EXIF data when the upload is done & save them somehow? One could then make a link beneath the photo to show the data.

Including the Exif would be a good idea.

Over on jetphotos they do it so why can't it be done here?
