✓ Tips

  • When the Photo Info window is showing, you can click another photo to see its information immediately.

  • You can change photo titles, dates, and comments in the Information pane, but you can change only keywords in the Photo Info window.

  • The Photo Info window picks up its information from the EXIF (Exchangeable Image File) data stored by most digital cameras. EXIF is an industry standard that's designed to help interoperability among cameras, printers, and other imaging devices. In theory, EXIF support could help a printer produce a better rendition of an original image, although the theory appears to fall short of reality.
