EXIF- Exchangeable Image File Format

I extol the virtues of Exchangeable Image File Format.  I am constantly working to improve my photography.  I use the metadata information that is embedded in my work.  Metadata is term that comes to us from library science and later adopted by computer science.  In Windows I right click on the photograph, and the Preview menu pops up, I move the cursor to the bottom and find Prosperities.  It is in this location, that photographic gold is found.  You are led to a panel of tabs titled General, Security, and Details.  It is the Details tab that all the valuable data exists.  You have the title, date, and  time of your creation.  Then there are the dimensions that tell you how large your photograph will be.  The name of your camera is announced, along with F-stop, Exposure time, ISO, White Balance and other information.  I study EXIF to compare successful photos to those that are not. Almost all new digital cameras use the EXIF annotation, some even store Geographic Position System (GPS) information if your camera is fitted with such a receiver.  This metadata allows you to easily see where the images were taken!   All the photographs that appear in Photographic thoughts use EXIF.  I hope you find this photograph of a ladybug resting in a yellow rose relaxing.
Thanks for listening.
