How to Display Exif Data in Your WordPress Image Galleries

by Waseem Abbas on Apr 1, 2016

Do you want to display the exif data of your photo on your website? Sometimes you may want to show the camera settings you used (like ISO, shutter speed, aperture, etc.), so your visitors can learn from your photographs. In this article, we will show you how to display exif data in your WordPress image galleries.

The default WordPress image gallery doesn’t have an option to display exif data. Since many of you asked about it, we added this feature in Envira Gallery.

First thing you need to do is install and activate the Envira Gallery WordPress plugin.

Now go to Envira Gallery » Add New to create an image gallery in WordPress. (Check out our post on creating an image gallery with thumbnails in WordPress to see more details on this step.)

After creating your image gallery, you are now ready to display exif data on your photos…

Display Exif Data of Photos

To display the exif data, you’ll need Envira’s Exif Addon.

To access this addon, you must have Envira Plus License or higher.

Simply go to the Addons tab from Envira Gallery » Settings to install and activate the Exif Addon.

Now go ahead and edit your image gallery, and enable the exif data. To enable it, click on the Config tab and make sure the checkbox next to “Display EXIF Metadata?” is checked.

Underneath that, check mark all the data that you want to display with your photos (Camera Make, Camera Model, Aperture, etc.).

Enable Exif Data

That’s it! Pretty easy, huh? Your gallery should now look like this:
