What a beautiful, colorful bird.

How can you tell what settings were used for the photos? I tried to right click and view image info but it does not provide that information.

It should be in the Exif as well as the geotag location
Here's the screenshot, 1/500, f/8 @ 500mm from Google EXIF Viewer (highly recommended):

Google doesn't offer an EXIF Viewer. ;-)

Because the one in your screen capture did look interesting, I searched around for it and found the one you're using (as there are a number of Exif Viewers for various browsers named "Exif Viewer").

It's this one (a Chrome Extension named Exif Viewer from Andy Virvich)

https://code.google.com/p/exif-vewer...t.crx&can=2&q=

The developer does host that project with code.google.com (but, so do tons of other developers for a wide variety of projects). More about hosting a project there on this page:

https://code.google.com/p/support/wiki/GettingStarted

That Exif Viewer is not from Google though (it's from an independent developer), and it's not even the only Extension for Chrome named "Exif Viewer".

Anyway, that one does look neat. It's too bad it's not offered for Firefox (the browser I use most of the time).

So, I've been using Exif Viewer by Alan Raskin for years now (Firefox Extension). Get it here:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...n/exif-viewer/

But, lately, I tend to use Jeffry's Exif Viewer (web based) so I can see a lot of information about an image. See more about it here:

http://regex.info/exif.cgi

Basically, you can drag and drop the Exif button you'll see on that page on to your Firefox Bookmarks Toolbar, so that all you need to do is click on it, and it will load the first image it sees from the page you're browsing and give you the Exif info about it.

Or, you can "right click" on a specific image and use the "view image" choice from your browser to open it in a separate tab, then click on the Exif Button in your booksmarks toolbar so that that image is moved up to Jeffry's.

Jeffry's Exif Viewer uses code on it's back end that's based on Phil Harvey's ExifTool (which is a tool that tends to give you info about most anything from an image's Exif metadata and maker notes).

But, that Chrome Extension you're using does look interesting.

BTW, you can also add a right click option to send an image to Jeffry's Exif Viewer from Chrome. If you search for Exif Viewer from the available Chrome Extensions, you'll see it:

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/s...iewer?hl=en-US

This extension:

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...apfck?hl=en-US

But, I rarely use Chrome for anything. So, I tend to use either Exif Viewer by Alan Raskin for Firefox or Jeffry's Exif Viewer to look at Exif info.

Jim,

I also like this one...
You just hover your mouse over the picture to see its EXIF, or click on GPS to see its geotag location: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...oiekndck?hl=en

Great information. I was wondering how all of you got EXIF on other peoples photos. I also use Firefox so will have to use one of the links Jim provided. Thank you very much! That will be so useful to see what settings everyone is using to learn from.

Jim, I downloaded the EXIF from Alan Raskin as I use Firefox also. I like the one NHL has copied an image of better as it even tells if someone used manual settings. Too bad it does not work for Firefox.
