EXIF VIEWER (READ b4 u ask: what lens/camera/setting u used
 
1. What is EXIF?

Exchangeable image file format (Exif) is a specification for the image file format used by digital cameras. The specification uses the existing JPEG, TIFF Rev. 6.0, and RIFF WAV file formats, with the addition of specific metadata tags. It is not supported in JPEG 2000, PNG, or GIF. (Source: )

2. Why would I want to view the EXIF?

Because it contains a lot of info:

a. Date and time information - Digital cameras will record the current date and time and save this in the metadata.

b. Camera settings - This includes static information such as the camera model and make, and information that varies with each image such as orientation, aperture, shutter speed, focal length, metering mode, and ISO speed information.

c. A thumbnail for previewing the picture on the camera's LCD screen, in file managers, or in photo manipulation software.

d. Descriptions and copyright information.


3. How to view EXIF?

Just use one of the followings:

a. Opanda iExif Viewer - is a free stand-alone application for viewing Exif data, and also a plug-in for MSIE and Firefox on Windows platforms, that allows examination of detailed Exif data online by right clicking on an image.

b. Opera browser - Opera is the only browser that comes with everything you need to be productive, safe and speedy online. It comes with built-in exif viewer and even a free mail client, and mouse guestures :)

Right click on image, then "Image Properties"

I read through the whole instruction, and even downloaded the software and installed, still blur-blur....:? can't find how to save the file in EXIF format...!
Hope you don't mind guide me through, please.
From I understand the software is only for viewing details of the image, but can't be save in it EXIF format... must be I missed the step or totally out off the topic.

Just an example. This is one of your shots u posted in SA before. The exif is embedded already. There's no such thing as exif format. Either you save with the exif intact or you save without the exif. (save as web). I suggest you do more googling and reading up.
