Easily Look Up EXIF Data in Google+

For photo enthusiasts, Google’s new Google+ social network is something like Flickr mixed with Facebook. It has the social sharing power of Facebook while providing features and tools Flickr users would appreciate thanks to the fact that Google runs a full-fledged photo-sharing service in Picasa (soon to be brought into the Google+ fold and renamed Google Photos). One such feature is the EXIF data section, easily accessed for each photo by Action->Photo Details. Most Facebook users would likely be confused by having a histogram pop up for their images, but for loyal Picasa users using Google+ for sharing and viewing photos, it’s quite a nifty option.

    Too bad we cannot +1 your articles, Petapixel. And BTW are you on G+?

    We’ll be adding it soon :) We’re actually holding out on announcing an account right now because Google says it’s going to have special accounts for non-person users. We’d like to see what those are like first

    Scott Bourne is a joke who omits one important KEY sentence from his quoting of google’s TOS. See for yourself.

    11.1 of the Google TOS begins with “You retain copyright and any other
    rights you already hold in Content which you submit, post or display on
    or through, the Services. By submitting, posting or displaying…” and
    ends with “This license is for the sole purpose of enabling Google to
    display, distribute and promote…”

    I can’t find this screen anymore.

    Is there any way to see the EXIF capture date any more? I seem to be unable to see that. Maybe Google changed something?
