Once we have run the software as such, we enter its peculiar user interface that offers us everything we need to work with these files. And it is not only a simple player, but it goes much further. In fact, this is a software that is constantly growing to adapt to the times. From here we will have the possibility of creating our own playlists Y content libraries corresponding to the supported formats.
Although most users use Kodi software to watch their movies and series or listen to music, the program is more than all that. A clear example of all this is that from here we can see TV channels of all the world, listen to the radioview our photos or even play retro games. In this case we are going to focus on the image content that the open source software that we mentioned allows us to manage.
In order to be able to review all these image contents that we are commenting on, we only have to place ourselves in the Photos section. Just as it happens with videos or audio files, here we can load our content library that will be updated automatically. It must be said that we have the possibility of creating as many libraries as we want or need.
This is how you see the metadata of your photos from Kodi
The program offers us a powerful viewer of this type of image files so that we can use it simply and conveniently. In addition, it offers us a series of very interesting functions such as viewing these contents randomly, creating a presentation with them automatically, or even customizing their order.
But something that we must take into account is that, as happens with many other types of files, images have hidden data. Also known as metadata or in this case, EXIF data, this program allows us to show or hide that secret information from our library files. On certain occasions these hidden or secret data will be of enormous use to us. In fact, we can make use of other programs that allow us modify and customize that EXIF data.
They are usually generated by our capture device automatically, but it is not always recommended that they pass to other hands. Be that as it may, the Kodi software that we are talking about in these lines allows us to view all that information that is initially hidden. But we have to activate the corresponding option from the configuration window of the program. We access it through the gear-shaped icon that we find in the main interface.
Once here, click on the section called Contents, and then go to Images that we find in the left panel. At that moment we will see on the screen some options related to the treatment of the photos. Therefore, we only have to activate the option that will allow the application to show the EXIF information of the images that we upload here.
