    Long time Nokia user first windows phone.

    I'm using my phone for work and sometimes I get in a hurry so I like to use the camera to take a pic of a job I've completed. That way I have a record of time, date, and parts used that I can reference later. On my old N8 I could just look at the photo "details" for the time and date. So my question is, how do I find this info on my windows phone?
    It has to be here somewhere? but where?

    Apparently, there is an app that offers that feature. http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...w-do-i-do.html

    Apparently?! Thanks anyways. Typical rude mod reply. I am aware of the search function. I'm not looking for an app to add a watermark to the photo, I'm looking for a way to view the properties of the photos I take. Should be a standard windows function.

    Man do I miss Symbian. WP8 feels stripped down and plain Jane.

    You can probably get it uploaded to your Skydrive, access your Skydrive in IE in desktop mode, click the picture, and the properties will appear. It even shows your shutter speed and more :)

    You could use skydrive to view the EFIX information, or any other EXIF viewer.

    Wait, a quick search in the store did the trick. Here you go!

    you cant view exif data on ios either. not sure about android. all three operating systems have third party apps that allow you to view exif data on the phone. i am sure that if you view the photo on a desktop OS you can easily see the exif data.

    If you select details view in SkyDrive it shows the file name and date. This is in the mobile app... As mentioned before, this would only apply if you were syncing your photos. In the SkyDrive web app you can see everything, including the location.

    Hope this helps...

    I can assure you that this information is not available on iOS either, though iOS 7 will change that.

    Actually, I just checked and the Nokia Pro camera app does have an information screen. I've been using as my default camera app since I downloaded it.

    Thanks, I guess I will have to use pro cam as my default from now on.
