  • File Size - size of the image file given in megabytes
  • Creation Date - date and time when the image file was created (year:month:day hours:minutes:seconds)
  • Dimensions - width and height of the image in pixels (dimensions in inches are given in brackets)
  • Resolution - it describes detail an image holds, measured here in dots per inch (dpi)

If you click the More Info... button you will see the whole list of image parameters:

  • Title - image name entered manually
  • Author - person who took this picture
  • Date Picture Taken - date and time when the photo was shot (year:month:day hours:minutes:seconds)

  • Focal Length - actual focal length of the lens
  • F-Number (also known as F-stop or relative aperture) - number defined as the focal length of the lens divided by the effective diameter of the aperture (a smaller F-number implies a larger diameter lens and therefore more light available for high-speed photography)
  • ISO Speed - refers to the "film speed" or sensor sensitivity to light (higher ISOs mean the sensor (or film) is more sensitive to light, while lower ISOs mean the sensor will be less sensitive to light)
  • Metering Mode - refers to the way in which a camera determines the exposure (the following modes can be used: unknown, average, center weighted average, spot, multi-spot, pattern, partial, other)
  • Flash Mode - flash mode used to produce this picture (on/ off/ auto, fired/ did not fire, red-eye reduction, retouch)
