It should be possible to show the EXIF data of images - there would be two places where this would fit:

  • additional Studio tab - e.g. named Information (could Display of non-image resources as well, e.g. number of words/paragraphs/... of a text field, ...)
  • in the Resource Manager

My use case would be to look up the GPS and other location information of the embedded image.

Thanks, Christian

Use it as an image/content manager and drag/drop from there inside any affinity program.
No need to use place/open.
Tell xnViewMP what your favorite folders are and all your content is where you want it.

@haakoo @wigglepixel Thank you for showing me tips how to view EXIF data in an external program. But my problem is to view EXIF data comfortable without searching for the original (if available at all, because if a image is embedded I've found no way simple to copy/export the image).

That makes sense

But: All I want is an easy way to show the EXIF data of images placed inside an Affinity Publisher document (regardless if - or where - I have a copy on my hard disk)

Hello @Christian Luidolt,

it is not the fastest way but what you can do is to open the page with the image on it in Affinity Photo by clicking on 'File > Edit in Photo...'. There you find in 'View > Studio > Exif' everything in place. This of course requires that you own Affinity Photo.

This is a (temporary?) workaround. Currently it is not possible to switch back from APh to APub. I assume this will be added later.
I do not know if the 'Exif Studio' will be part of APub at some time, though.

At least this way you don't have to look for a copy if the image on your harddisk :)

@dominik Thanks, but File->Edit in Photo opens a whole page in Affinity Photo - and the EXIF tab in Affinity Phtos does not show the EXIF data of the embedded image but the whole page :(

@Christian Luidolt,

yes, this is correct, it opens the whole page not just the image.

But you have to click on and select the image and you should be able to read out the Exif data. At least this works for me on Windows. Fortunately I read from your reply that you own APh to try this out :)

selecting the image in Affity Photo does not show the EXIF data of the image

@Christian Luidolt,

this does surprise me. I think it worked for me. I'll have to do some more tries with different images.

@fde101 @dominik I'm sure that I've selected the image itself (tried it multiple times, different documents, loaded the image itself into Affinity Photo and confirmed that EXIF-data is shown) - Thanks for your help :) - but this would only be a rather uncomfortable work around, so it's no issue for me that this does not work as.

I think the guess here is that when the Photo persona is made available in Publisher the EXIF studio panel might get dragged in along with it, so if you have both, you would simply need to switch to the Photo persona to view the data from right inside of Publisher without needing to switch to the other program...
