In this quick tip I go over how to modify your EXIF (exit data) on your image. There are three different ways you can do this and they all lead to the same module. The easiest way to bring up this module is to use your keyboard shortcut – SHIFT + I. This module will appear and you can start modifying your information.
You might be asking,
ok chris, what the heck is EXIF data?
Exif data (AKA – Exchangeable image file format) is the information your picture contains when you take the photograph and save your image. It is kind of like tagging your images. This is also the information people will be able to see if they right-click on your photograph and check the image information.
The Exif data will contain information such as:
- The date and time of when the photograph was taken.
- What the camera settings were when you took the photograph.
- The brand of camera you used such as Nikon, Canon or Sony.
- Some EXIF data will have a small sample preview image for viewing. (I have yet to see this on my EXIF data but heard it is does happen)
- It will provide description information (that you add or type in) about the photograph such as copyright information, your website and any other pertinent information you want added and share.
Sites such as Flickr.com and 500px.com allow this information to be seen so other photographers can see what your settings were, the camera you used and more. You can modify and change what you want to be seen and what you are willing to share. This is completely up to you. By utilizing this tool it will allow you more control over the information that is attached to your image.
- Open your image into your EDIT tab
- Click the keyboard shortcut SHIFT + I
- The module will appear and you can make your adjustments
- Click on the OK button then save your picture and you are done
