Flickr Now Displays Basic EXIF Info More Prominently on Photo Pages

Flickr has quietly rolled out a great incremental update to its photo-sharing service. Individual photo pages now display a number of EXIF details under a new section labeled “Additional Info”, found in the column to the right. With a quick glance, you’ll be able to see the shutter speed, aperture, ISO, and focal length that a photographer was using when he or she snapped any photo.

Here’s a closer look at the new section:

Keep in mind that these details will only show up if the EXIF data for the photo was intact at the time it was uploaded.

EXIF data itself isn’t a new feature on Flickr. Previously, clicking a link at the top of the same righthand column would bring up a dedicated EXIF data page for that image. That page is now accessed by clicking the details in the Additional Info box.
