Reading exif data of posted photos....?

Hi, this might be a stupid question, but I would like to know whether there is another way to read the exif of posted photos than safing them on your local machine and opening them in some photo editing program. Can it be done online?

PhotoMe has web browser integration options. I have it setup where I can right click a picture and the context menu has an option for "PhotoMe" and it will load the picture from your temp folder into PhotoMe and read the EXIF data if it is there.

I use a Firefox extension called Exif Viewer - I just right click a photo and choose exif viewer and the info pops up in a window.

I use EXIF viewer with FireFox. Sometimes I have to go to the "original" hosting site and sometimes there is no data. However, if there is no data, it won't show up if you download it anyway. PhotoMe works as well but opens up the photo in PhotoMe.

Panda, at, has a decent free viewer, with not too much extra info. Just right-click on an image and select "view exif". PhotoME is good if you like very long lists of mostly useless technical info :-)
