Meta Tags on windows XP?

Postby Trevor Harris » Wed Jul 28, 2010 1:22 pm

I'm not even sure if it's called meta tags, but I'm referring to picture information being stored on the jpgs, things like ISO, apeture, shutter speed... I know in light room & apeture these can be found, but is there a way to do so in windows xp using the operating system alone?

I don't have an XP box up right now, but you can. Should be similar to Win7, which is browse to a jpeg file, right click, properties then details tab. Isn't that much different.

Yeah, Tried that. There is no details tab, nor is the info there. Glad to see they fixed it for windows 7 at least.

Ooh, on a new XP box now, you're right. Summary > advanced shows camera model but that's it. I thought it was there... maybe I'm imagining it, or something else I installed is doing it on another system. I'll check again next time I'm on a more mature XP system.
