.exif File Extension

Developer: N/A
File type: Exchangeable Image Information File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .exif. Files with the file extension .exif can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .exif files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .exif file?

The .exif file is mostly related to other formats like .jpg and .tif, and this file format is associated with image files. Data or image captured by the camera and then imported to the computer is usually in this file format and then later on changed into another format such as the JPEG format in order to be edited. Usually, when files are saved using the .exif extension, other pieces of information are always included, such as date and time, the camera name, settings and other details about the image. Adobe Photoshop can be used to open and view the content of these EXIF files. This software also provides a set of integrated functionalities that can allow users to make edits or modifications to these EXIF files. Adobe Photoshop can be installed in Microsoft Windows systems and Mac platforms, and this software also enables users to export these .exif files to other more widely used image file formats.

how to open a .exif file?

Launch a .exif file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .exif file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .exif files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .exif file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .exif file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .exif files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .exif. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
