Default How to get camara info on photo

I posted a reply on " jazzman's" Sunset post.

Some of you may like to know how I did this. If you see a photo on this or any other site that you like and may like to know the camara settings/details here is how you do it.


First right click on the photo and copy it.

Second, past it to your desk top.

Third go to Jeffery's Exif Viewer at this URL: http://regex.info/exif.cgi

Fourth click on the Browse button on the "local image file" box and select the photo now on your desk top.

Lastly: Click the view from file button next to the browse button.


You will get all the digital encoded info if present for the photo.

Here is the info from one of my sunset photos:

"Camera: Nikon D3100
Lens: AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G
Shot at 28 mm
Exposure: Auto exposure, Not Defined, 1/100 sec, f/9, ISO 400
Flash: Off, Did not fire
Focus: AF-A, at 3.4m, with a depth of field of about 12m, (from about 1.4m before the focus point to about 11m after)
AF Area Mode: Auto-area
Date: October 11, 2011 6:44:55AM (timezone not specified)
(1 year, 10 months, 10 days, 1 hour, 57 minutes, 54 seconds ago, assuming image timezone of 5 hours behind GMT)

Time Zone Offset: -05:00
File: 3,072 4,608 JPEG (14.2 megapixels)
4,626,586 bytes (4.4 megabytes) Image compression: 89%
Color Encoding: WARNING: Color space tagged as AdobeRGB, without an embedded color profile. Windows and Mac browsers and apps treat the colors randomly.

Images for the web are most widly viewable when in the sRGB color space and with an embedded color profile. See my Introduction to Digital-Image Color Spaces for more information
."


I have learned A LOT from doing this and take much better pics now.

Default Adding meta data to photos

I had many family photos/slides that were scanned to jpegs and was looking for some way to label them internally so the info could never be separated from the images. I found an excellent free program (Zoner Photo Studio) at http://www.zoner.com/. While I have no idea what the camera settings were, at least I can record when/where the original was taken and who/what was in it.

If you are using an older camera that doesn't automatically insert the exposure data (and you know what it is), you can also add that manually. as well.

Another easy way to see the exposure data is to open the picture using picasa, right-click and select "properties". This works on lots of other photo viewer/editors too.

Be warned that many photo uploaders will strip the exif data to protect privacy (like facebook). I'm actually kind of surprised that the uploader for this forum passes all exif data intact.

jazzman,

Your method also works but I use the one I posted about cause I'm used to it.


Yes this site uploader does not strip the exif data. If you notice I stripped all but the camera data from the file before I posted the data from your pic. Things like the LatLong and other data wasn't needed to answer the question.
