Adding EXIF with Adobe® Lightroom® 3 and LR/Mogrify 2

In a post about two years ago, I wrote a tutorial on the use of Adobe Lightroom 2 and Timothy Armes’ LR2/Mogrify plug-in to add EXIF information to an image processed for the Web. Since that tutorial was written, Lightroom has been updated to Lightroom 3 and LR2/Mogrify has been updated to LR/Mogrify 2.

This tutorial is an update, providing complete illustrated instructions for using Lightroom 3 and LR/Mogrify 2 to add EXIF data to an image processed for the Web. LR/Mogrify 2 works on both PCs and Macs, but on a PC, you must install ImageMagick first. These instructions are written from the perspective of a Mac user, but the PC process is almost identical. For those who would prefer to use Adobe Photoshop to perform this function, the PrintEXIF and FrameShop scripts, available free on this website, are good alternatives.

PrintEXIF v4.0 – Automatic Lens ID

I’ve incorporated automatic lens identification into the latest version of the PrintEXIF script. Previous versions have required either the selection of a Nikon or Canon lens from a drop-down menu or entering a lens description manually. In v4.0 I’ve taken advantage of the fact that most modern DSLRs write the lens information to the image file’s metadata. The user interface now shows the lens ID in the dialog box, if it is available in metadata, and lets the user choose to use that ID or enter the ID manually in a text box.

PrintEXIF Script v3.0

PrintEXIF, a Photoshop script that started as an adaptation of a script I found on a DPReview forum, has taken on a life of its own. For those unfamiliar with PrintEXIF, the script was written (in JavaScript) to prepare an image for display on the Web by “framing” the image and “printing” its EXIF information (shooting data) into the bottom of the frame. Why do this? When photographs are posted on photography forums, forum readers frequently ask, “What aperture and shutter speed did you use?”, “What ISO?”, “Which lens and what focal length?” You get the idea. So to answer those questions, PrintEXIF can be used to put that information into the photograph itself.

PrintEXIF and GalleryFrame Scripts for Adobe® Photoshop® CS3

The PrintEXIF and GalleryFrame scripts have now been updated to work in Adobe® Photoshop® CS3. Actually, the GalleryFrame script worked in CS3 but I had not updated the installation instructions to reflect the CS3 folder hierarchy. PrintEXIF took a little more work. Either or both scripts can be installed in the Program Files>Adobe>Adobe Photoshop CS3>Presets>Scripts folder (Windows) or Applications>Adobe Photoshop CS3>Presets>Scripts folder (Mac OS X). The current versions are PrintEXIF v2.1 and GalleryFrame v1.0.

PrintEXIF Script

PrintEXIF is a script for Adobe® Photoshop® that automates the presentation of shooting information (EXIF) for either a photo that is targeted for the Web or a photo that will be printed. PrintEXIF creates a frame around the photograph and “prints” shooting information – EXIF data – in the bottom of the frame. It uses both standard EXIF data and data that has been recorded in the IPTC Caption field by Nikon Transfer.
