Google Image Search Now Shows EXIF Data

Google Image Search Now Shows EXIF Data

We told you recently how examining the EXIF data from photos can be a useful way to enhance your photography skills. That process is now a little easier, with Google now displaying EXIF data as part of its image search results.

You’ll see EXIF data displayed when you click on that image in the results page, though this only happens if the photo has been uploaded with EXIF data (which typically covers a range of details about the kind of camera used to take a photo, as well as when it was taken). By default, Google only displays a small amount of data, but you can get extra information by clicking the ‘More image info’ link.

If you don’t want EXIF data in your own images, check out our guide to removing personal data from your photos.
