PrintEXIF Script Version 1.6 Uploaded, New Features

First, I want to thank all of you who have used the PrintEXIF script and have provided feedback on how to improve it, how it worked with your camera's images, and on problems you might have encountered. That feedback has helped me improve the script and provide more detailed instructions on its use.

If you're just learning of this script's existence, you may want to look through this thread:

Basically, PrintEXIF is a script written in JavaScript for Photoshop CS that frames an image and displays EXIF information, as well as a title and copyright information, in the bottom of the frame. The script is "freeware" so feel free to distribute it or modify it. Examples of its use can be found here:

I have updated the script to make it more user friendly, fix some bugs and to add new features. The script is now much more user friendly and easier to use for photos you want to print in addition to those you want to display on the Web. The new version 1.6 has now been uploaded and I have included several pages of instructions on how to use the script in both the Web pages and in the WinZip file. Included in the instructions are how to use the script, how to customize it, how to use Nikon Transfer with the script and Frequently Asked Questions. The new version can be found here:

New features:

1. Font sizes are calculated automatically for the EXIF info, title and copyright

2. With automatically calculated font sizes, the script can be used easily for printed photos as well as those destined for the Web

3. The default calculated font sizes can be modified by the user using the dialog box

4. The user can choose to flatten the font layers (default) or not to flatten them

5. The copyright/signature can be located either in the right lower portion of the photo, the left lower portion or in the bottom frame on the left
6. The title defaults to the file name and may be edited by the user

7. The TC20E II teleconverter has been added to the TC selection panel

8. The dialog box panels are individually enabled or disabled by the user as a means of minimizing inadvertent errors
9. A Cancel button has been added

10. If errors are encountered an error message is displayed

11. Detailed instructions (with screen shots) are included in the Web pages and in the WinZip file

Some of you have had difficulty displaying the ISO value for the D100 DSLR. That is because Nikon didn't store the ISO value in the standard EXIF field for the D100. The ISO was stored in the makernotes which are non-standard and difficult to access with any editing program. And as with earlier versions, the script highly depends on the EXIF information being written to the IPTC Caption field by Nikon Transfer.

As with the earlier versions, any and all feedback is welcome.
