->> Is there budget software that can be used to tell the size of a digital photo at various dpi, plus view the metadata, other than Photoshop Elements?

->> I use Photoshop, but I need a budget or free software that a co-worker(writer)can use(PC) to look at a photo and read the metadata and tell what size it is at different dpi. I will check out Gimp and Ifanview.

->> Why not just use a calculator? It's simple arithmetic.

Pixels divided by resolution in dpi = linear size in inches.

1000 pixels at 100 dpi = 10 inches.

->> Take a look at ACDSEE. Not sure if it will do it or not, but they do offer a couple different version levels and a free trial. They used to have some pretty interesting features.

->> Not sure how much detail you need, but I know when I view any image or its thumbnail in Windows file manager when you hover over that image the pixel size of the image appears and when you right click/properties, you can see the dpi resolution as well as some other metadata. And the included Windows Picture Manager software or whatever they call it offers simple tools for cropping or resizing.

->> What metadata do you need to see? There's a PC program called "Windows" that will show you much of what you probably want.

Right click on the image...select "Properties"...click the "Details" tab.

Windows also has a "Calculator" if your partner needs help with the ppi math.

->> I think there is a difference between seeing camera metadata and my the need to see IPTC data. Many programs will not read the IPTC. My company chose Photoshop Elements. Thanks.
