Image Count info...Actuations on KX

I just got a new Kx and for the life of me cannot figure out where this info is located on camera. I have checked the manual and played with the camera.

Thanks in advance

The information will be found in the EXIF metadata that is part of the images. Do a search for free EXIF viewers (there are dozens) and open an image on your pc. Look at the EXIF and you will see a piece of data that is shutter count (or similarly named). There are plug-ins for Firefox and most browsers that will let you see the EXIF on images.

still can't find shutter count

I have checked the metadata on PS elements and downloaded Opanda (exif reader) and have been unable to find the shutter count information. Am I missing someting?
Is shutter count (actuations) available directly from Kx rather than through image?

Finally found it!!

Opanda never worked whether using jpeg or RAW.

These 2 resources worked in showing shutter count on Kx.
