[Official Topic] Camera Settings (EXIF) on the photo page

Flickr Staff

Schill PRO says:

Hello, glorious Flickr users,

We've made two changes to the photo page around the "photo story" and "additional info" area relating to EXIF information.

When available, we currently show the make and model of camera used to take the given photo along with the date, time and location.

In many cases, we would link the camera model (i.e., "using an Apple iPhone 4"), to the EXIF page for a photo. Now, it will link to the Camera Finder page - a much more logical destination.

In conjunction, we are now starting to show some EXIF information inline on the photo page, under the "Additional info" heading. At present, we show exposure time, aperture, film speed, and focal length as applicable on the photo page.

Here's an example of how it looks:



The EXIF details themselves are a link, which now points to the full EXIF page.

Note that your EXIF will only be displayed to others based on your account preferences; you can review your current setting on the EXIF Privacy page.

As a Canon 5D owner, one of my favourite things is seeing the camera settings that people use to take great photos; this little UI tweak helps to expose some of that info up-front.

RubyMae PRO says:

Ugh, I don't love this. I didn't mind sharing it (my exif) via click through but putting it right there on the page is just asking for someone to armchair quarterback your choices.

If I now choose to hide the EXIF on flickr, will this affect flickr being able to access the geo-info and place my images on the map automatically?

Schill PRO says:

BlueisCoool : Since we changed the camera link (which used to go to the EXIF page), the [?] link points to the new inline EXIF area below on the photo page. We expected a few people might wonder where the EXIF link went, etc. (It is also under the "Actions" menu, as well).

The [?] link will be temporary, and we'll take it down after the newness has worn off.

so you hover over the ? which says 'view exif info' click it, only to have to click again to get to all of the exif info?

can we just remove the ?

But i like the idea anyhow. i reckon a lot of people are only interested in the basic exif info.

EDIT
just seen that you are gonna remove it. :-)

The click takes you down the page (in case you didn't already know to look there) to that particular subset of EXIF info. But you don't have to click to see that. Clicking on the subset takes you to the Big Long List of Ridiculous Amounts of EXIF info.

It's a full-account setting not an upload default. The EXIF data are still there (for mapping etc.), just not visible -- though I'm sure if I'm wrong I'll be corrected on that! (I used to turn the show EXIF option on and off all the time. Couldn't make up my mind.)

RubyMae: The EXIF Privacy setting controls whether the EXIF details page is available, as well as the new UI introduced today. It is global and applies to all uploads.

Keep in mind that as the photo owner, you will always be able to see this info - but your settings will affect other users' ability to see it.

EXIF as it relates to geo and placing your photos on the map is a separate preference, which you can review here.

Very cool! Seems to be broken for some photos, though. This one of mine for example:
www.flickr.com/photos/mag3737/743695088/
Looks like a parsing problem, %s bits suggest something not getting properly replaced. I thought it might be related to the EXIF data for that particular camera, but some other photos by that camera have their settings displayed correctly.

Could there be a (different?) bug that causes no "Settings" link to display on a photo at all? Obviously that would make sense if there's no EXIF data. But this one must have EXIF data, because Flickr is able to detect the camera type. But there's no "Settings" link:

Vox Sciurorum PRO says:

I like seeing settings in the main page. Having the camera link to the camera finder is mostly harmless. It makes more sense, but it isn't a very useful feature. As long as the new settings row links to metadata I suppose I'll get over it.

The faint text for the metadata, light gray on white in a light font, should be darkened or otherwise made easier to see.

Very cool... I wonder though, would it be possible to say, have the basic info but block the ability for the more detailed exif to be displayed? I keep my EXIF hidden by default - I know that some camera models' EXIF includes serial numbers and there are other concerns people have, wrt showing *all* metadata - but I might consider enabling the basic display if that's all that showed...

Leo Reynolds PRO says:

If a photo is in lots of sets or groups or has masses of tags the new EXIF line gets pushed off screen so the camera make and model and new EXIF line don't show up on one screen.

Any chance of having the camera make and model included in a grey box with the new EXIF data line. The word Settings could probably be left out to make room

e.g.

Canon PowerShot SX210 IS 1/30 ƒ/3.5 ISO 80 5 mm

Thanks for trying it out on your setup. Did you try it on one of your photos? This only happens on my photos. It's going to do the same in any browser as the link has "organize" and "batch" in it.

"www.flickr.com/photos/organize/?batch_geotag=1&ids=8171763213&from_geo_ids=8171763213"

EDIT: Since posting this I've played a bit more and found that the problem is related to photos that I've taken with the Hipstamatic 260. On those photo pages the links to the maps open in the full Organizr instead of the small floating window. The links on photo pages I've taken with other cameras open in a small window as expected.

"It's right on the page. You don't have to click anything."

To be fair, many viewers are still going to have to click something. On my monitor, the EXIF is just barely visible at the lower right. Anyone viewing a slight smaller monitor or with the browser window not maximized won't see it without scrolling. :-)

Schill

"Now, it [the camera name] will link to the Camera Finder page - a much more logical destination."

That IS more logical. :-) Though some of us have just now gotten used to clicking the camera name to see EXIF.

"In conjunction, we are now starting to show some EXIF information inline on the photo page, under the "Additional info" heading. At present, we show exposure time, aperture, film speed, and focal length as applicable on the photo page."

I like it. As staff is aware, some of us have been asking for this for a LONG time. +1

"As a Canon 5D owner, one of my favourite things is seeing the camera settings that people use to take great photos; this little UI tweak helps to expose some of that info up-front."

If by "up front" you mean "hidden further down the page", then yes. :-)

As I noted above, the information will be "below the fold" for many viewers. For me, it's only barely visible, with my monitor maximized on a 1920x1080 monitor. If I had a few more tags or added my image to one more set/group, then it wouldn't be visible at all.

There's a bug which is related to photos taken with Hipstamatic 260. The [?] does not appear after Hipstamatic 260 and the Map links are taking me to the full Organizr rather than opening a separate window. The map links on photos I have taken with other cameras are behaving as expected.

Ncedisa: I'm sure this bug has been introduced with the coding for the new EXIF display. I'll have to wait for staff on Monday to decide.

Justin P Brown says:

I preferred all the information as it was before, accessible in one click. The exif data is relevant to the exposure shown, not what type of camera was used. If anything it ought to have been the other way around; that the exif data remained at the top of the page and the camera model info was re-located. Showing a picture of what camera was used is quite useless (I'm not going to go and buy a new camera every time I see which one has taken which photograph), where as the lens and, moreover, the photographer are more relevant (though I don't need to see a picture of the photographer either.)
My cynical side thinks that eventually there'll be a shopping link next to the camera picture.

Schill PRO says:

Thanks for the feedback, all. A few replies here as to why we did X, etc.:

Nic (Luckypenguin): We tried putting the new EXIF info higher up in the page - above the map, below the map and so on - but we found when we did that, it bumped other important information like sets and other contexts further down the page. We think the current location is a good start, but we're looking into ways to better the integration into the photo "story" area ("taken with", and so on).

Leo Reynolds, Wil C. Fry: As the EXIF is shown under "Additional Info", it will indeed be pushed further down the page if the photo is in numerous sets, groups and has a lot of tags.

The right column is a fine balance of "story", "context" and "other info", so we're being conservative with our introduction of a new item.

As I mentioned above, the current EXIF placement is our "Version 1.0" of the feature, and we'll be thinking about ways to show it in a more integrated fashion in the future.

Regarding "Hipstamatic 260" and other virtual cameras, we only show the [?] when the camera make/model itself is a link (which as mentioned, used to go to the EXIF page). The Hipstamatic 260 refers to the Hipstamatic software and not a real, physical camera model known by Flickr's Camera Finder, so that is why it is not linked.

Justin P Brown, Hockey.Lover: Keep in mind that the new EXIF data is also a link you can click, which takes you to the full EXIF page.

Thank you, I was unaware of this link. Have you thought about making these features customisable to the user? I for one will almost never look at what camera was used for an image capture as I feel it is largely irrelevant, also I never use the map feature there, and so would swap these positionally in favour of the extended exif data. Thank you for your reply.

Leo Reynolds PRO says:

This is what I'd like to see:


The EXIF data is close to the Camera make and model, no need for a "sidecar" link and the link to the full EXIF data will be very close to where it used to be.

Customisable would be good too.

I think the main EXIF on the front page is a great improvement. I wonder if the lens could be included, either with the EXIF info or together with the Camera type. I like Leo's set-up with the EXIF info further up the page. I don't geo-tag my photos so I'm happy for the large map to go someplace else. I find it rather large where it is.

nice to have the basic exif visible, though higher up the page would be good. Perhaps the lens used to take the shot could be added along with the camera too?

Also, could clicking on the camera [and lens if it were there] show first the photos taken by the user using that equipment then with a link onto the camera finder page?

Still love that salutation,

Nice addition. I admin a group that has a Long Exposure challenge where we have to verify the EXIF data of challenge entries for exposure time. This makes that process easier, thanks!

Would like it further up the photopage as mentioned above...

Schill It would be great if the new abbreviated EXIF info could be placed right under the camera make and model instead of so far down the page? I like the change you made so it can be seen at a glance...now that I know what is going on. At first I thought Flickr was having technical problems! LOL :-)

I do not want the settings displayed on each image I post....that is why I keep the EXIF info private. How do I disable this private info of mine from all who look at my photo? I shoot in different ways and would rather people ask me about my settings and I will gladly talk to them but I DO NOT want that info available for all to see on each image. If we choose private it should not be shown....I don't understand. Thank you in advance for your response.

Your EXIF data will be visible to you, however, I can't see it on your pics at all.

If you keep it private, then it isn't displayed.

" If we choose private it should not be shown"

Always been that way. Still is.

Generally in favour, but do get rid of that "(?)" which is pointless.

为什么? says:

Its a good set up. It's an easy and fast way to see basic EXIF and more if wanted.

As others mention maybe change the question mark to something else. Maybe an "Info" button, like the one found on a camera?
