See where a photo was taken, specific camera settings and more
When a photo is taken with an iPad, iPhone or digital camera, all sorts of information is stored and saved along with the image. It’s possible to see what type of camera was used, the date the photo was taken, the size and MP of the image, it’s file size, format, focal point, lens, ISO and shutter speed. If the device included GPS or location-aware hardware (both iPad and iPhone include these features), then you can even see exactly where a photo was taken using a map.
Using iPhoto you can see all of these settings and vital statistics, with just a tap of your finger. Read on to discover how…

2. View the images location
