ImageDB EXIF Data Screenshot

Back to Features                  Next Screenshot

Many modern digital cameras provide a great deal of information along with each stored image in the EXIF data. ImageDB allows you to view this data and copy it across to the ImageDB image properties.

There is a very large amount of data typically contained in this EXIF header and not all of it is going to be of interest to all users. The EXIF data consists of a collection of "tags" containing data about the camera and the image and is split up into three main sections:

  1. Main - general information - some manufacturers provide their own tags instead of some of these in their own section (see 3).
  2. Sub - additional general information. As with the main section some manufacturers provide their own tags instead of some of these in their own section (see 3).
  3. Manufacturer - manufacturer information. Each manufacturer can supply their own "Maker Notes". Obviously these are different for each manufacturer and sometimes different for different ranges of models from one manufacturer. The great problem here is that this data can be quite hard to come by and difficult to keep up to date (new tags added for new models). Currently supported cameras include - Canon, Olympus, Nikon and Fujifilm. I hope to add more as I get hold of the data.

To try and make viewing of this data easy the EXIF dialog is split into five tabs; one for each of the sections described above,  one for Favourites and one for Filter. Tags from the main, sub and manufacturer sections can be added into either the Favourites or the Filter sections (see below).

Filter Section
Tags placed in the filter section will not be displayed in the main, sub or manufacturer sections, leaving only the data that you want to see. T

Favourites Section
The idea is to place all the tags that you are most interested in into the Favourites section. This is the first section that is displayed and its values can also be copied into the ImageDB image properties. 

Copying Data
Individual tags can be selected to be copied from the Favourites section into the ImageDB properties.
