All that information and more is already saved in the EXIF data attached to each image. Any good photo editor will show it to you.

It's actually not the camera you're trying to force to cough up EXIF information--it's the lens. The lens has no electronic contacts, and so cannot communicate any of the lens's EXIF information to the camera to record in the image's EXIF. If you were a Canon shooter, I'd tell you to go find an AF confirmation chip on eBay and glue it to the lens, but a ...

You can't. The Samyang lens is all-manual with no electronics to identify itself to the camera. In theory, the camera could have some feature which would let you enter this manually, but since Sony doesn't sell any lenses like that, they don't have a strong incentive to add that ability. See, however Correct EXIF metadata for Rokinon 8mm fisheye lens for ...

There will be many good options. This is what I happen to use usually and it works well for me. It would be useful to hear from other people too. Irfanview does this well. And its marvellous in general, and it's free. I get scolded by Matt for enthusing over its slide show, resizing, basic organising and editing and more, so I won't :-). (It's OK to do ...

Lightroom doesn't per default write to the image files, it only stores the info in it's database. If you want to have that info available externally, you can say "write metadata" in the context menu, or activate an option in the preferences "write changes automatically to XMP" (or similar). "XMP" in this case stands for the XMP space in JPEGs or XMP sidecar ...

If you use a Mac, there's a $4 geotagging app called Photo GeoTag from the Mac App Store: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/photo-geotag/id957217448?mt=12

Nikon have free Nikon ViewNX-i: http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Nikon-Products/Product/Imaging-Software/ViewNX-i.html

Your camera saves this information, which we call "metadata" (because it is data about the data captured in the photo itself — one level beyond, or meta), in every file. There are many utilities which can read and display this. I'm not aware of any software designed for photography which doesn't — that'd include Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom, Picassa, and ...

At least on windows, you can see a lot of EXIF info in the file properties, details tab.

Once you take a photo, you can view Photo Information by clicking the Play button on the back of your D3200 and clicking the Arrow either up or down. More information can be found on page 98 of your manual. Aperture, Shutter speed, ISO, Focal Length, Focus Mode, Flash Mode, White Balance, and much more is all available via this menu.

(I think) Every digital photo has aditional data stored on it besides the image itself. That is called Exif data (Exchangeable image file format). A Dslr camera can shoot to a raw or jpg image file, and both formats include this data. Smartphones and compact cameras most likely shoot only in jpg, but it includes this information too. When you manipulate ...

There are many tools which can provide you this information: Lightroom, xnview, (probably) any graphic editor. Also any EXIF tool can provide you this info (check exiftool, its free and very good) P.S. For sure there is Nikon instrument, which can provide you such information, but I am not Nikon shooter :)

You can use GeoSetter. It is a freeware tool for Windows. GeoSetter uses Exiftool for writing tags, but provides an easy to use GUI. It lets you select what photos you want to geotag, or you can edit existing tags. You can tag photos by synchronising with a GPS file, or pick the location on a map, or enter the latitude/longitude manually. If you don't have ...

The GPicSync features list implies that it can do this, but I didn't see any documentation as to how, so if it's not discoverable from the interface, you can use exiftool directly like this: exiftool -gpslatitude="$lat" -gpslatituderef="$lat" -gpslongitude="$lon" -gpslongituderef="$lon" "$filename" where "$lat" and "$lon" are the lattitude and longitude ...

If this is like every other Canon camera, Av exposes for ambient, and uses the Flash for fill. P assumes the foreground is the subject, so it exposes for that. For your Av photo, the camera found the subject very dark, so pushed to get as much light as possible, However, the fill flash was close to the subject, so it is over exposed. You can see that the ...

You can edit individual keyword tags in Lightroom, and set them to 'Include on Export' (the default) or not. In your case, if you edit 'animal' and 'mammal' by right-clicking the keywords and choosing 'Edit keyword tag' you can uncheck this option and it will no longer export. See the screenshot below for an example.

@mattdm: According to the MWG specification any handling of metadata dates (Original DateTime, Digitized DateTime, DateTime) SHOULD cause both XMP and EXIF to be updated. But handling metadata properly in most case is a nightmare, mainly because there are a lot of vendors who don't follow official specifications when writing metadata. Daminion doesn't ...

I don't think any significant software which uses this. The EXIF standard is to assume that the time zone matches the correct one for the location where the photo was taken. Most cameras have ad hoc non-standard tags for dealing with this; for example, my Pentax camera sets World Time Location. However, EXIF isn't all there is, and in fact I think most ...

Taxonomy? Exiftool has supported writing Darwin Core as XMP for a while now. http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/TagNames/DarwinCore.html http://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/ Resource Space is a free software DAM which uses exiftool as it's metadata backend. You can customize it to support Darwin Core.

I will provide all who visit this page with a working answer, having in mind that this is now 2015: Of course you can have you images uploaded to a Google+ album and still have you originals on your computer. Supposing you have uploaded the images with Picasa 3 and you still have the connection in Picasa with both the local and online album. What you need ...

I recommend you follow Metadata Working Group guidelines. They build on and in some cases override the older exif and especially IPTC standards. MWG Location Guidelines

For embedding standard metadata in images, EXIF is considered the primary standard, which provides well understood fields for time and location information. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exchangeable_image_file_format In addition, EXIF has a tag known as 'maker data' that allows 3rd parties to embed custom tags. This is typically where a Canon or Nikon ...
