How to View EXIF Data with XnView

XnView makes it easy to see the EXIF metadata stored in your digital photos. This data is inserted by the digital camera and includes information such as camera settings used for the shot, camera model, camera orientation, resolution, color space, date taken, GPS location, and more. While many programs only show you a small amount of EXIF information, XnView shows you a great deal of it. If you want to see all metadata stored in your camera files, a dedicated metadata viewer is your best option.
