View Full Version : Jhead path
August 22nd, 2011, 08:46 AM
I have installed jhead. I have set display and extract EXIF information from images to YES.
What do I set the path to jhead to? This is what I have, is it right?

The reason I asked the above question is because it is not displaying the EXIF info with the photo?

That is the path to imagemagick
You will want to turn on exif under showphoto options and put the path to your jhead where asked in global options

I cannot get this info to show up.
I have my jhead path set to
I have my Upload Image Options set to
Display and extract EXIF information from images? YES
I do not see anywhere in Show Photo Options to turn on EXIF? Am I missing something here?

As I said maybe your path is that. I can not say as I do not administer your server. However if nothing shows and extract exif is yes I would suspect your jhead is not located where the path you have entered is noted.
Turning on exif is in upload options.

I have the correct file path to jhead now and have it set up in the admin area.
The problem is that is still is not working.
Is there a command line I can type to verify that this in working?

That looks like the path before it is compiled if you ask me as usually after you install it it would be maybe
the line we use is right in image-inc.php like this so for your example try this
/usr/src/jhead-2.90/jhead -exonly /some/path/to/some/file
You would need ssh access to your server to test it.

I got the command line to work. The results are posted below. I used
/usr/src/jhead-2.90/jhead -exonly /home/mysite/public_html/test.jpg
So we know the directory is correct. Why is it not displaying in photopost?

are you clicking the show exif info link under show photo options when viewing a photo if you have exif turned on to be extracted?

OK, I feel stupid now. I did not realize I had to click on the camera icon to show the EXIF info. I thought it would display automatically.
Is there anyway to have the EXIF information display for every photo that has the info without having user to on the icon?

Not without some type of template mod or something as its controlled by ajax
Maybe you can try placing the variable $exifdata somewhere in the showphoto template where you want it to display.
