Released in 1995 by JEIDA (Japan Electronic Industry Development Association) as a technology for improving the color reproduction of printed images, the EXIF standard (Exchangeable Image File) allows additional data such as authorship, comments, various technical parameters and more, to be included within image and audio files.
Most digital cameras save exposure parameters as EXIF data such as the date and time the image was captured, exposure time, flash energy, focal length, the lens aperture, ISO and even the coordinates obtained from a GPS receiver, to the images they record.
A free solution for easily creating, editing and viewing EXIF.
This information is valuable for a number of different purposes including perfecting one’s skill as a photographer, while being able to edit this data is also extremely handy. For example, if you want to remove those location-identifying GPS coordinates or add copyright information. Savvy marketers may find other applications for it as well.
