I have been trying to add exif data to my galleries and am not getting anywhere. I have read countless pages and threads around this forum and tried a couple of plugins but I still have a lot of questions.
I'll just list them here and maybe you can help me figure out the answers one by one:
a) wordpress seems to have exif support. what does that mean? as far as I understand, it reads the exif data and saves it when a picture is uploaded. where does the info get saved?
b) does wordpress have its own functions to display exif data?
c) does wordpress keep the exif data even if pictures are being resized/cropped with wordpress core tools like the photo editor?
d) as far as I have figured out, exif data gets lost if a picture is resized/cropped with most plugins out there, true? Are there resizing plugins that do not result in a loss of exif data?
e) why would I need a plugin if this is built into wordpress?
f) Can you recommend a plugin? most of them are outdated.
g) Is there a way to add exif data to lightbox-type plugins? i.e. as an overlay?
Finally here is a list of plugins I have found to be looking promising but I haven't been able to add the output to my lightbox-style plugin (I am currently using Shutter Reloaded)
