I am looking for a utility to allow me to copy the shooting data so I can paste it into a blog post. I'd be great to be able to check the items I wanted to extract. Right now, I am doing it manually and it is taking a lot of time.
Here's a basic example. (I might want to include EV, VR on or off, etc.)
Shooting Info: Nikon D800 with a Nikon 70-200mm lens at 70mm, Gitzo 1348 Tripod, Arca Swiss Z-1 Ball Head, and Wimberley Sidekick. ISO 100, Aperture Priority, 2.5 seconds at F/10, Auto Focus,
(I know the shooting data will not include the tripod, head, and Sidekick)
Maybe this is already in LR or Photoshop and I just haven't seen it, but if anyone has any suggestions, please post them here.
Thanks in advance. I hope this is an acceptable forum. I looked at others and didn't see a better one.
Drag a picture to it, then use the File Menu --> Import/Export --> Text output menu to get your information in a format that is easy to copy & paste. It also has a TON of other information about your file - including camera, lens, settings, GPS, and personal settings. Best of all, it's free.
Hi Dan, Thanks for the note. LR lets you view all EXIF data and some of the other apps or plugins create a huge text file which includes all of the information. I was looking for some way of getting just the few settings I wanted from the list of data.
The LR/Transporter plugin does exactly what I needed.
Here's an example line of text created in just a couple of clicks:
I tried following your instructions but am apparently missing something?
With a photo open, I go to File> File Info>
In the Advanced Tab, I can click on Exif Properties and I can "see" all of the data, but I don't see any button to copy all of it. Worse yet, you can't drag across a displayed field and select it to copy it.
I can do all of this easily in LR, but what I needed was a way to selectively pick the information I want and automatically put the information in a single line of text so I can post the information under a photo. The LR/Transporter plug-in does this for me in a painless manner, but I am always on the lookout for something better. It'd be on my list for future Lightroom features.
