Add more exif data automatically

The automatic addition of ISO, aperture and speed for non-challenge entries was a great improvement (would be nice to see the same with challenge entries). I would be happy if keywords, title and caption could also be added automatic. Would save me a lot of copy/paste.

This is definitely something I want to do. I'd like to include Camera and Lens as well, although those will be the most difficult to merry up what's set in EXIF with what's in our database.

What software are you using to set title/caption/keywords? Can you send me a sample image with those fields set here?

Portfolio and challenge entry uploads now read EXIF information and populate known fields (unless they've already been set by the user). Currently supported fields include:

Details, Keywords, Exposure Date, Aperture, ISO, Shutter Speed, Camera*, and Lens*.

* Cameras and Lenses will only resolve if they are in your inventory via Preferences.

Thanks!

Just uploaded 2 photos. All details seems to be correct, except for the lenses. It recognize my wide angle Canon EF-S10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM, but not my macro lens Canon EF-S60mm f/2.8 Macro USM.

Checked my preferences and it's really there. Only difference with the exif name is a space, but that also applies to the 10-22 lens

Here's the link if you want to have a look. I just uploaded those two without changing anything.

Fixed the camera resolution bit (was a problem for prime lenses) and I'm now detecting Title.

Just uploaded an image for a challenge, Exif data is OK (yeh!) , but you can't upload an image without entering a title.

So you have to copy/paste the (exif) title first before you can upload the image.
