 The camera fits nicely in the scoop of the detector truck that SS gave me for Christmas.

I do have trouble getting photos out of my vacuum tubed, wooden cased computer. SS tried and couldn't make it work either. El Dorado had it working for me a couple of years ago but I have either forgotten what he showed me or something has changed.

  I miss not being able to post pictures. If I could, when you folks say I'm full of B.S. I could post photos to prove it.

Take your photos, get them developed however you do it

and then take a shot of them with your smartphone and post them on the website…

(half joking).

 My smartphone takes two 6V dry cell batteries and has a rotary dial and it's a real pain to stretch out the antenna and wind it back up every time I use it. You folks are going to force me to step into the digital age.  sorta wish I had a ten year old grand kid.

4.41 - it is free so why have anything but the latest? But earlier versions also have it I think so maybe you are not looking in right place or opening a file lacking the information in the first place.

Go to menu bar when an image is open, chose IMAGE and then first option INFORMATION. Or just hit the "I" key as a shortcut.

The info box pops up with EXIF and IPTC selections in lower left corner. If there is no EXIF or IPTC information (normal if you open a gif or bmp file) then those options will not appear.

Since I have your ear - any tips for this guy? http://www.detectorprospector.com/forum/topic/1558-infinium-ls-detecting-gold-question/?p=18413

      Looking at some usernames on this forum i sometimes wonder how they came up with their name. Obviously some have user names that are their real name but others are a little more bizarre. When i decided to join prospecting forums i didn't know what to have, so googled how you say Gold in different languages. I came across "Jin" which is the Chinese term for gold.

      I thought I’d try using a pedometer just to see how far I stroll along the beach on my hunts.
      The reviews I’ve read on many are not very complimentary.  It seems the common complaint centers on accuracy and battery life.
      I’d appreciate your thoughts and recommendations.

      I thought it would be cool to overlay a geological map onto a topographical map.  And maybe a property map onto an aerial image map.  Then I would like to put these custom maps onto a smartphone GPS app.  That way when I’m in the field, I can see that I’m in a favorable rock type area or approaching a private property boundary.
      I see that MapWindow is a free GIS software that will let me make map layers.  And for smartphones, it seems that Gaia GPS is a popular app.
      Does anyone have experience making custom maps on their desktop then downloading them onto a smartphone GPS app?  If so, what desktop software and smartphone app do you like?
      Google Earth has layering capability... has anyone use GE to create downloadable map files for a smartphone?
      PS, if you have done this for a handheld GPS instead of a smartphone I'd enjoy hearing about that as well.

      I just upgraded the forum to the next major release, 4.5.2. This time they did some changes to the overall look and feel. Most of the changes are improvements but the new high contrast colors and bold fonts are almost too bright, too sharp. The header went stark white so I dialed that back to blue. Anyway, I'll be tweaking the look and feel for a few days. A couple of the old add on modules are now out of date so need to deal with that also.
      For any nerds out there, here is the forum feature change list. One new thing is there will be a new mobile app. If you visit lots of Invision powered websites (like Chris', Bill's, and Rob's) it may be of interest.

      The old color scheme. Less bright colors, blue text instead of black and white, more of a gray background.....

      I enjoyed reading the topics under this forum as I have a couple entry level units un addition to my Equinox. But I have not been on this site for a couple of months and can’t seem to find it. It seemed pretty active.

      Here is a short list according to Alexa. The large number reflects the total internet ranking, Google being #1. Other sites you might be familiar with did not make the top ten but you can go to Alexa to see where they rate. This website has been on a tear rapidly increasing in popularity for some time, and I thank you, the good forum members, for making that happen!
