EXIF viewer

If I'm going to start taking things a bit more seriously I better have the facility to view the EXIF data.

Can someone recommend a safe free download?

Thanks

Re: EXIF viewer

There are quite a few EXIF tools out there. I've tried a few and it does depend on how much use you intend to make of the EXIF data and how user friendly you want the appearance of the information. I've used all of the following at various times and found them to be fairly reliable

If you want some real power then maybe take a look at EXIFtool http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/ - not pretty, but does the job well and is free

If you want pretty, but simple then many of the standard file viewers such as fasstone http://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDetail.htm which definitely supports E-510 ORF files as well as JPEG since the last update as I use it - it's also free

If you really want to get into Categorising pictures using EXIF or other data then Imatch could be worth a look. http://www.photools.com/ Whilst it is $64 it's really powerful at both EXIF editing and moving forwards into full DAM

Ultimately there are plenty of good tools and I tried a lot of options and suggestions before finding what really worked for me which is all of the above depending on the job I'm doing.

Regards
Andy

Microsofts Window and Fax viewer on XP lets you view exif (properties-summary-advanced) as do the viewer (forgot its name on Vista)

A good (free) general purpose tool for resizing, basic editing of photos is IRFANVIEW

http://www.irfanview.com/

You will also need to download the plug-ins.

IRFANVIEW runs OK on Vista - I use it on a Vista laptop.

Personally I'd install the big zip file with all the plugins (but it is specifically in zip 4)
