View EXIF Data with New Google Chrome Extension

By Jules Ebe on July 9th 2013

Ever wonder what settings or equipment was used on a random photo you came across online? Well, with a new Google Chrome extension, you can find out. View EXIF data for online images by just scrolling your mouse over the image. Pretty cool idea, though not a new one.


brings features you usually find on sites like 500px and Flickr to your browser. The extension is not perfect, as some images have their EXIF data purged when uploaded.


However, if the information is imbedded in the data of the image, you can see it. Pretty interesting way to research images and find out what settings were used to capture the moment.

The extension works on the Google Chrome browser and can be downloaded for free here.

So what do you think? Would you EXIF-stalk your favorite photographers online?

Until Next Time . . .
