Added 'Exposure Program' used,  e.g Shutter Priority, Aperture etc
Also added 'Exposure Bias' value

Let me know if you want any other information shown from the exif data.

Just spotted a minor typo in the information - Aperture Priority is mis-spelled 'Aperature Priority'

Otherwise all OK.

Thanks Edward, the typo is in a third-party file somewhere but I am having no luck tracking it down. I did have a quick look for it lastnight and another just now but still no luck.

That typo has now been dealt with (had to get help!). The reason I couldn't find it is it's not part of the code on PoE, but is a value of the 'Exposure Program' exif field, so as we can't correct it at root, we now have to use a str_replace() function to deal with it, e.g str_replace('Aperature','Aperture'); which sorts it on the fly.

Hi Chris & Sarah, I'm sorry I put you to so much work in fixing what I thought was a minor typo. It looks Ok now and much more professional.

Incidentally, the Exposure Mode information is very informative when looking at other people's pictures and learning what  mode seems to be their favourite. Personally I prefer Manual Mode when time permits, but everyone has their own preferences.

No need to apologise Edward, we thank you for pointing it out, else it might have been forgotten about. And yes, it's good to see what mode people use and what other settings are used to get the results they do. A lot can be learned from it, as I'm finding out myself.

Having looked at quite a few images on PoE, I am not convinced that the EXIF data relating to exposure is always reported correctly. I started out with film photography (or should I call it analogue now ?) so I have  a pretty good idea  of the usual  ISO/Shutter Speed/Aperture values to expect with outdoor scenes. Anyone else got similar doubts about the accuracy of the reported data ?

Hi Edward. It should all be correct as it comes directly from the data on the image file, but if you have some specific examples, please post the image ID and I will investigate. Many thanks.
