Hello. I am having a problem related to this. The solution to run the upgrade script does in fact fix the problem of changing the 'exifinfo' value to 1 for images that contain EXIF. However, when I upload a new image that contains EXIF, the show EXIF button never appears.
I have confirmed that the EXIF info is being read into the database on upload. The pp_exif table contains all of the info needed. The value for 'exifinfo' is remaining at 0 for some reason. Running the upgrade script again changes it to 1. Obviously running the upgrade script every time an image is uploaded is not practical. Any idea what the problem is? I am running 6.01.
