If you enjoy viewing photographs on Flickr and use the extra EXIF information listed with each image like the exposure, focal length and others to improve your own photography skills. You will be please to know as from this week Google is now be displaying the same EXIF information next to images within its Google Image search service.
The information is displayed as clicking the results and includes Exchangeable Image File Format (EXIF) specification data, detailing the camera used to take the shot, settings, focal length, flash usage and exposure bias. Together with the copyright and usage rights associated with the image by the person who created or edited the image.
“Additional details are found from within the image file, often saved there by the digital camera that took the picture or the application that generated the image. This data can also be manually added or changed after the image has been created.
Google doesn’t create or change this data in images created by others. The data is saved using the Exchangeable Image File Format (EXIF) specification and can include details about the type of camera that took the image, the camera settings (like aperture, focal length, exposure length, and flash settings), and the copyright and usage rights associated with the image by the person who created or edited the image,”
