i'm sure i've posted this before but there are a lot of new people here.
what this program does is gives you a rt. clik option to view the EXIF info on online images. ie: aperture, model, time, focal length, etc.

it does not work w/all images. if you work on an original and use save as, then your exif info will be preserved. if you copy and pasted the info will not be preserved. this is w/most programs.

if you have taken an image w/ what i call a dumb lens, a manual lense, this will tell you a lot except the focal length and the aperture.here's an example of the info on one of my images taken w/a dumb lens.

well , one of ira's images using a dumb lens.

here's an example of one of mtngal's images using a smart lense. probably the kit lense as it's at 55mm.

here's a link to the program.

Nice little program! I had seen you (or someone else) mention it whenI first started researching cameras but didn't think I would use it (and I'm always concerned about downloading programs. Your screenshots convinced me this one was benign and to give it a try.

Let's see, since I decided to replace my broken Sony, I've found several neat programs recommended by people here (this one and Neat Image). While I don't use Neat Image as much with the Pentax as I did for the FZ30, it's still useful and easy to use. I'm so glad I came to this board to research cameras!

What do you mean, my lens isn't dumb!!

Nice utility, much easier than downloading the image in order to check.

Another good Exif viewer is from Opanda. It will work on web images and on your own images in Windows Explorer.

For my Macintosh, I like PhotoToolCM, a contextual menu plug-in that gives cntl-click access to EXIF, plus lossless rotation and batch renaming. It's at http://www.pixture.com/software/macosx.php

For ViewEXIF and IE, yes - it will appear right under properties (as I recall, I'm at work now and don't have it on this one). Very convenient.
