Flickr and exif

Hi folks

I have recently noticed on Flickr, I can no longer see the exif data in my photos in how the camera was set up for the shot: ISO, shutter speed, aperture, etc, etc, I recently carried out a full reset in camera. Could this be the problem?

Please advise.

Re: Flickr and exif

Not sure Phil but I do know that as I still use Win7 and Internet explorer Flickr has stopped doing a lot of things. Cant see albums or individual images at the moment! Just made the jump to Win10 though so hopefully it will work properly once I get used to the new system.

Re: Flickr and exif

Phil, can you see exif in Flickr on your old photos, and are you using a phone + app or a web browser on a PC/Mac?
If you can see old exif but not recent, is there an option on the uploader to exclude exif?

Flickr no longer supports IE11. In fact Microsoft itself advises users to ditch IE as it hasn't been supported by them for a while and, because of that, is vulnerable to attack.

To continue using Flickr you will have to download and use another browser. Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Microsoft's Edge are fully supported by Flickr.

I am still on Win7 and use both Firefox and Chrome with no problems whatsoever.

Hope that helps

Keith

No - the images will still contain EXIF data unless you or your software have removed it.

I haven't used Flickr for a while but EXIF is missing from my images that have been up there for ages and it used to be displayed - perhaps they've limited it to Pro users under the new regime?

UPDATE: There's quite a long thread about the problem here: https://www.flickr.com/help/forum/en...7704358359291/

Re: Flickr and exif

Just looked at your Baby Ibis photo taken recently, the Show Exif button reveals the exif data, but the normal default view showing camera, lens aperture etc. isn't viewable.
It is on your older photos.
Have you changed the way you upload them; like you, I'm a Pro account holder

Hi Phill

Thank you Phill. I am Mac OS and looked at Steve's link to the blog about the problem on FlickR. There was a big write up about it 2 months ago. The last entry said that if one requests your data in your settings, it will resolve the problem. Apparently it has also been a problem for subscribers to Pro as well as non Pro members. So I visited the settings page and pressed the submit feature for my data. I received an automatic reply saying my data will be emailed to me and the email could take some time to come through. I await in anticipation.

Thank you Bill, yes the older photos still has the camera exif. I find it useful having the exif on display. I use it as an educational tool, as I know when some of the more experienced members are viewing my photos, they can see where I am going wrong with my camera and it saves me the time in posting the settings up.

On checking the account settings, I have ticked the box to include the exif data.

Thank you for the link Steve, it is a big help. From reading the blog on it, both Pro and non Pro subscribers were affected. The admin comment on the blog: the problem has been identified and staff are working on a solution, another admin comment was that it is a display issue.

Hi Keith, thank you for thinking about the problem. I am on Mac OS, all devices and use Chrome and Safari. But I will certainly try Chrome. Thank you very much for the solution.

You're both very welcome.

I hope it may solve problems others are having.

Unfortunately it doesn't help much at work (where IT installed IE11 & we can't just install something else). But perhaps I have some better reasons for asking to have a real browser installed!
