For reasons unknown and probably insignificant, I decided to post my kludgey moveable
type plugin code for extracting EXIF and the embedded Maker Note for Canon cameras.
It is virtually untested, except on my photo blog
and my camera (Canon Powershot
G2). The simple little plugin reads out the EXIF data from JPEGs taken with Canon
cameras and makes the information available though a movable type template tag.
All of my photos, for instance, have six fields shown to the left of the image
which are extracted directly from the JPEG using the plugin [1
My thumbnails also depend on the plugin to extract the proper size for the IMG
tags. If someone out there decides to give it a try, the installation and usage
notes are in the included readme file. Since I threw together this little project,
much more has appeared on the web including a
full java library
. If I ever recover from chronic laziness, I will actually
gather together the test files provided in the above project and make a genuine
effort to make the script a little more polished as it is little more than proof
of concept code at this point.
