Often when you use this program to see the EXIF of a photo, there are two focal lengths listed. Sometimes the first is smaller than the second, and some times the other way around. How can you tell which was used, and why are there two listed? TIA



Look at this shot for example. Focal length is listed at 35mm then at 52mm.

If you look closely, the first number is the actual focal length, and the second number (further down) is the 35mm Equivalent Focal Length.

If you use your mouse to enlarge the first column so it's wider (at the top of the column headers), you'll see that the second number is "Focal Length in 35mm Film".

They're just giving you the 35mm equivalent focal length, too (35mm x 1.5 = 52mm)

Keep it to around 720 pixels or less wide and users won't need to scroll back and forth to see the entire forum post with most monitors.

If you attach an image (you'll see a browse button under the entry box when you start a new post) from your hard disk drive, it will also need to be less than 250KB (lower your JPEG quality if the file size is too large).

You can also make an image viewable without attaching it if you have it stored on a web site that allows direct linking using the icon you'll see when entering a new post. The file size restrictions don't apply if you are linking to one (but, we'd still prefer it if the file size isn't too large, because some of our users are dial up). Ditto for the width (try not to make it too large from a dimension perspective so that users don't need to scroll back and forth to see it).

Here is a thread on how to post images:
