Exif data is a specification in the photo used by Digital camera. Every information like Camera model, Manufacturer, Aperture, Shutter speed, ISO, etc. are stored in Exif in the photo. You can check basic information of Exif data in your photos in Windows XP and later version of Windows, of course Mac supports as well.
I wrote about how to check shutter count in your camera with Opanda before and it works great because it shows every information from Exif, but the problem is that it works on Windows only. But if you’re Mac user, you can try Simple EXIF Viewer. I stumbled upon a web site, Jeffrey’s Exif viewer that can easily check tons of Exif information in photo on the fly without installing any of those software. You just need to give the photo url from web or upload the photo.
I have been using Flickr to share my photos with my friends for a while. After upgrading to Pro account on Flickr and I saw that I have uploaded more than 300 photos in my Flickr account. I always upload the photos in original size and some of the photos I uploaded in Flickr weren’t not found back in my machine. I have been searching for a tool that can backup photos in Flickr in original format. I even decided to write an application to download the photos from Flickr using Flickr API if I can’t find app.
I’m addicted in blogging and of course, I read many other blogs every day. I can’t visit all the blogs I read. I just simply subscribe their feeds in my favorite RSS reader, Google Reader. I can read the recently updated blog posts in rss reader just like I’m reading emails.
