View EXIF data
Is there a way to view EXIF data in Gimp 2.6? I tried using the plugin 'exif-browser.tar.gz' but it did not seem to work in 2.6. Any thoughts?

Thanks

RE: View EXIF data
Depends how you installed it. From the name, it's a Linux version that requires a bit of techie knowledge to install. Making a Windows of same isn't for the faint of the heart.

On the other hand, Exif display is really a function for photo managers, not photo editors. I've been using Gimp for three years and I don' t miss the Exif display in Gimp, I'm just happy that it faithfully copies the Exifs back when I save the photo.

RE: View EXIF data
I installed it on a Linux system and there seemed to be a lot of missing dependancies. Before installing them I looked at the README file and it was written in 2005 and made for Gimp 2.0 so I'm pretty sure that it simply won't work on 2.6.

I use DigiKam for photo management and that displays EXIF data fine. Being able to view EXIF data in Gimp is certanly not required but when I am comparing images that I used various f-stops or ISO settings it would be nice to see those settings when I open it Gimp before altering the images. By the time I import them into my photo library with DigiKam I tend to have already altered them.

I'll just have to alter my habits a bit to compensate.

Thanks for the reply.

I noted that GIMP doesn't allow to see exif data for TIFF files in Windows XP environment. Any tip?

Thanks but Exif-browser doesn't run with TIFF.
