Exifer displays the size in pixels of the photo you are watching.
Exifer tells you the zoom factor of what you see on the screen.
Remember? these 2 are my fad!
Exifer automatically backs up the EXIF data when you open a photo with any editor and lets you restore the EXIF data afterwards. (it's automatic depending on the settings you choose in the options dialog)
Remark: You must open the photo editor from within Exifer of course, Exifer does not spy what you are doing outside of it.
You can put as many different photo editor buttons as you want in Exifer's tool bar. This gives you the comfort to quickly open a photo with any photo editor of your choice and backs up the EXIF data automatically at the same time for later recovery (if set up to do so). Very convenient feature, I like it. Much better than context menu or right mouse button menu...
A button in Exifer's tool bar (or CTRL R) lets you restore the EXIF data after working on a photo with any editor.
Exifer's Shift-CTRL-V creates or recreates the EXIF thumbnail (e.g. if it does not reflect the present state of the photo).
Exifer's Shift-CTRL-S updates the EXIF image size values (e.g. if you did crop or resize your photo with any editor that does not update or even not keep the EXIF data in which case you must restore EXIF data -CTRL-R- first).
Exifer's CTRL-E or a button in its tool bar lets you edit or modify the EXIF fields Description, Author, Copyright and Comment, the 3 dates, Date taken, Date digitized, Date modified as well as more than 30 IPTC EXIF fields.
The EXIF edit, restore, create thumbnail operations etc, can be performed on several selected images like a batch process.
Exifer can show you a custom view of only those EXIF fields you want to see.
This is by far not an exhaustive list of Exifer's features, but rather a quick summary of functions I found most useful.
Exifer is not a complete photo viewer.
It has the usual part of photo viewers that shows all images from a folder as thumbnails,
but it has not the usual folder tree on the left that let you organize your photos
i.e. move your photos easily around from one folder to another by drag and drop.
Unlike usual photo viewer software, Exifer does not show thumbnails of images that have no EXIF thumbnail stored in the file.
