Is there a way to make sure that the information properties of the pictures I take are downloaded. When I download a picture, I can see some of the info, but things like shutter speed, aperture, which mode I shot in, ISO etc... are not showing up, either in the default windows viewer, or by using photoshop. Does this not show up, or do I need an additional program to record this. As I am new to photography and digital SLR, this info would be helpful to see what settings are working best.

All of this information gets saved into the picture automatically and stays with the picture unless a program strips the information away. In windows, if you right click the picture, choose properties, go to summary and then click on the advanced button, you should see the information. For more detailed information, you can do a google search for free exif viewer.

Ghostinz - ISO is the only troublesome field with Nikon DSLRs, as Nikon has embedded it in a custom parameter within EXIF that most software don't expect. It will only register with Nikon software, and some specialised 3rd party software that are purpose build to read/extract it. There is however a nifty utility, more info here:

i tried the ISO fix, but it does not seem to work. Is the Nikon software the only one capable of recording the ISO and shooting modes? I sure wish I could get this information in Photoshop.
