been trying to find a tool that allows me to see EXIF information from photos easily (preferably as a tool tip) as Windows Explorer isn’t capable of doing it out of the box.  After a bit of hunting around I found that Microsoft have got a freebie solution themselves (Link to Download details: Microsoft Photo Info).

 

Along with this tool there is a partner app to work with RAW files (for those pro & semi pro-users).

 

The interesting thing is, that despite being on the MS download email every month, I don’t recall being told about the availability of this utility, and I only came across it by chance – thanks to another site’s reference to it.
