What is this site?
Exif Info is a tool that will show you the (normally hidden) meta­data that is embedded in a file that you upload. The tool focuses on displaying the meta­data from Exif images (i.e. .jpeg files), but can extract the meta­data from almost every common media format including images, videos, audio files, Microsoft Word documents, Adobe PDFs, and many more.
What is Exif?
The Exchangeable image file format is a standard that defines the formats of image, audio, and meta­data tags used by cameras, phones, and other digital recording devices.
What sort of metadata is commonly included?
Depending on the file type and the authoring tool (the appli­cation or the capturing device), different types of meta­data are recorded. Examples include:
  1. Capture and last edited date and time stamps (with varying precision)
  2. GPS location coordinates (degrees of latitude & longitude)
  3. A small thumbnail of the original image
  4. The author's name and copyright details
  5. Compass heading
  6. Device information including manufacturer, and model
  7. Capture information including lens type, focal range, aperture, shutter speed, flash settings
  8. The original filename
Can I get an example?
Here are some example files to show the range of data recorded by various different cameras:
  1. Canon 40D
  2. iPhone 6
  3. Nexus 5X
  4. OnePlus 5
  5. Pixel 6a
What file types are supported?
A bunch! See Exif Info supported file types for the complete list.
How are my files handled?
The files that you upload are automatically processed by the Exif analyser. The original file is deleted immediately after processing. The files generated (an image thumbnail, the Exif meta­data, etc.) are stored securely for up to three days (to allow time for you to view the results) and then purged. The result URL is private, unless you share that URL with others.
