How to Add EXIF Photo Tags in WordPress
WordPress is an awesome tool to share your photos with the world. It has great plugins and the best WordPress photography themes to showcase your images. EXIF (Exchangeable image file format) tags are metadata information saved with captured photographs and audio by modern digital devices. EXIF tags contain information such as device manufacturer, resolution, date and time, geo coordinates, focal length, etc. This information is really helpful and a lot of photographers want to show EXIF data with their photographs. In this post we will show you how to add EXIF photo tags in WordPress.
How to Display Exif Data in Your WordPress Image Galleries
Do you want to display the exif data of your photo on your website?

In this article, we will show you how to display exif data in your WordPress image galleries.
Add image EXIF metadata to WordPress
Hi Khürt, I was going to mention it before, but I thought I’d wait to see if you needed it said, since it says it at the end of the post. This function is only to get WordPress to import the geo exif into the database. It already imports shutter speed, aperture etc. To use the data in your theme you need some other functions in my previous post about Geo EXIF.
You will probably want to look at the code from Blogging Tips: WordPress gallery and EXIF as well as Mixing Gallery and blog posts.
How to Add Photo Metadata Without Special Software
Typical Exif information includes all kinds of information about the camera make and model, resolution, exposure, location and other settings, but most importantly for organizing files, Exif records date and time of capture with a unique file name for each image. The date and time is used to organize image files in folders and the unique file name identifies individual image files. Because Exif data is added automatically by your camera or capture device, you can’t really input Exif data except to insure that your camera is set to record the correct date and time.
