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.
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.
