Quoting JeffM (Reply 1): The exif is imbedded in each file and the moment the image is recorded. It doesn't happen during the upload.
Try Google. It will tell you all you want to know. Or you could read your camera's manual.
Yep, know it is there in each image. What i was getting at, badly I guess, was would it be possible for that information to be pulled out of the file during the upload process and added to the picture info automatically?
