Owner Info in EXIF data

Hi,

I just tried to add my name to the EXIF data on my EOS 400d following the instructions here How to add your name to the EXIF on digital cameras - Presented by Pixalo

I cant get it to work. I can set my name here and then take a picture with the remote software, but when I look at the properties of the file, the author is still blank

Thoughts?

Cheers

Start the EOS Utility and from the control window click the symbol with hammer and screw driver (bottom right).

You did have your camera connected and switched on?

Just double checking you aren't "Saving for Web" as this strips out EXIF info

I haven't tried this application, but I hear that Exiftools may be useful...

Re: Owner Info in EXIF data

what is exif tools? I assume its an application for setting the exif tags? I can do this in windows. I would like the camera to set the author tag automatically.

Re: Owner Info in EXIF data

anyone else have any idea's on this application? I can fully control the camera - even change the date and time. It just doesn't add the owner info to the author tag in the exif data

Re: Owner Info in EXIF data

I use opanda power Exif 1.2 trial, you can download a trial version with unlimited time.

Open the image and then click on ADD

Look for a tickbox called artist

tick it and it will add the artist value box

Click the box and it will open an editer

Add your name and then close the box

Close the file and answer YES or Continue to all the garbage that pops up

You have now added your name in the exif data



I added my name in this images exif using the above method

As far as I'm aware it can't be done in camera with the 400D
