Default How do you see the exif data from users posts

Hi,
How do you guys see the exif data from users posts? Do you down load them to your computer or is there a way to see it in the forum?

You can download a exif reader for explore or firefox or safari. Just google exif reader.

I go with a free one. They are all about the same I think. I use exif viewer for safari personally.

The one from Opanda is very good. I've used it for years, in multiple versions of MSIE, and in multiple versions of Windows. I've never had a problem.

That only happens if the EXIF data isn't stored in the file header, which is typical, but seperately, so that only the hosting service has access to it.

So to use it for this forum, do you download the photo and then use Opanda, or is there an easier way to just click on photo while in the forum?
