Displaying EXIF Data in WordPress

Over the last 6-months I’ve taken a half-dozen or so courses on LinkedIn Learning, read a couple of books, and spent countless hours taking photos trying to level up my skills as a very amateur photographer.

For me, the technical side of photography is a lot of fun; so when I’m admiring people’s work, I love to look at the technical details behind a photograph. Such as, aperture, ISO, and shutter speed (also known as the exposure triangle) as a beginner, these details are just as interesting as the photo itself.

The standard for saving all kinds of technical details inside a JPG image is called, “Exchangeable Image File Format” — or EXIF for short. I’ll show you how to quickly display some of those details using a WordPress shortcode.
