Tools for Reading and Editing Exif Data of Photographs Most digital camera record and save EXIF data with every photograph. Learn about tools that can help you view and edit Exif tags of your photographs. When you capture a photograph with your digital camera, the camera will not only store the current date and time into the image file but even the camera settings. The information that is recorded by the camera into the photograph may include details about the camera model itself, the lens that was used, shutter speed, aperture, focal length and so on. Some modern digital cameras and camera phones are GPS enabled and they can therefore save even the location co-ordinates (latitude and longitude) with the photographs. All this “metadata” is embedded into photographs using the standard Exif format that can easily be read by most image editing programs as well as online photo sharing websites like Flickr and Picasa Web Albums.

I immediately thought, wow that's a good thing ... ohhhh, wait a minute.
