Would it be a good idea, when sharing pictures with us, if posters also included some technical details? Or maybe even if the software could automatically grab them from the original file data? I am thinking of things like lens type, aperture, original format (raw, jpeg ...) exposure, flash usage etc. E.g. Lens Sigma 28-105mm at 58mm f2.8-5.6 at f11, aperture priority, 1/15th sec, sensitivity 200ISO, RAW, no flash, handheld, saturation normal, contrast hard, sharpness hsrd. Maybe the moderators could have a standard template?

ak,

see this thread for exif info

http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...mp;forum_id=80

for some reason your pix do not have the info in them that i can pull up. it's probably the software you are using. if you copy the image and use that it is usually stripped from the image. some software you have to set to save the exif info. after you work on the original image use the ''save as'' option and save that some where and don't copy it and save. one of the programs on the link give you a right click option to view the exif info..

Thanks, Robar, but I think maybe you misunderstood me. I know how to see the info on my pictures - if nothing else there is always the Pentax photo browser. I generally use Graphic Convertor for any work needed, and often deliberately drop the info on pics for web pages, email etc. But what I am suggesting is that, along with the wonderful pictures that people post on the discussions, it would be nice to see the settings they used to achieve those pictures, so that we can learn from them.
(Edit)
OK I've looked at the link now, and see your point. But (a) not everyone uses Windows (b) not every picture posted has the info (my post was prompted by Barbarian's post, which didn't have the EXIF data). It would be nice to see it written with the picture (though if that software worked and everyone left the EXIF in place it would of course not be necessary. My pic (market flowers) did have it btw.

ak,
very strange..
my rt.clik option tells me nothing but if i save it, irfan view tells all.. hmmmm
for my own pix i use irfanview(fast) or PSCS for info. it's for me and and it's a pain in the a$$ to post it for pix i post here. time is limited and i don't type..
i think your idea is great but i hardly ever see it done in practice. it just takes up too much time to do it unless your have a better memory than me.

here's a pic and it's exif info that irfanview gives .

it's just too much trouble to post unless you have the info in your head. i have however seen other forums that post basic info when you post a pic.

maybe steve will read this and alter the site here to enable it..

oh, by the way, i agree with you 110%. it would be nice if everyone posted the info. it's just never going to happen..

Get the Opanda Iexif viewer (free) from http://www.opanda.com
It is standalone pgm and a IE or FireFox plugin that lets you see the exif info with a right click. (if the image has the info embeded in it)

There is a new version 2.2 of IexifPRO just released recently.

I attached a sample screenshot of the partial exif info it shows for your turtle shot

Peter.

Yes IrfanView is my favourite EXIF viewer/extractor.
For images viewed online:
Opera 8.02 shows basic EXIF info on the right-click>>properties dialogue.
An extension for FireFox shows even more info on the right-click>>Properties. Available here:

I'm not an IE user, so don't care :blah:
