    I wasn't sure where to post this but this forum seems as good a place as any. For the past several years, I have used a $15 application called EXIF Everywhere on my older iMac in order to view the EXIF data of images I see on the Internet. It worked fabulously.

    Ratchet forward to this year and my purchase of a brand-new iMac with i7 chip and my discovery that the old EXIF Everywhere isn't compatible with OS X Lion. So I downloaded the latest version that's supposed to be compatible via the App Store. It still doesn't work - at least not for me. The App Store people were great and quickly refunded my purchase price.

    So here's my question: What are Mac people with OS X Lion using to read EXIF data? Are there any forum members who can make some suggstions? Of course, I still have iOS 5 to think about as well.

    I have a pc and use a free program by opanda to read exif data. I'll bet they have a program for apple too.

    There's EXIFtool, but it's a command-line program.

    iExifer looks pretty good ($4). Personally, I use the command line EXIF viewer. Would be nice if somebody made a Mac GUI for it though.

    I use Aperture and CS5 ... no problem with either of those programs reading EXIF.

    Exif Viewer 2.7 is free and runs fine in Lion

    No RAW support though, if that matters to the OP.

    Thanks for the replies. Yes, Aperture will read EXIF. (which reminds me, I'll have to update that program as well). I'm talking about quick EXIF reading on the fly as I look at other people's images on the Internet. EXIF Viewer and EXIF Extreme seem like the sort of application I'm looking for.
