Hello,
I’m a user of Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0, in which the image editor component displays "File Info" (Exif and XMP information) embedded in the image file using the Adobe Photoshop Information Panels, which are XMP files (DOCTYPE panel SYSTEM "http://ns.adobe.com/custompanels/1.0") also used by Adobe Photoshop full version.

I’m posting in this forum because this kind of customization may be considered an advanced topic.

Unfortunately, my camera embeds the Exif tag ExposureTime < http://www.awaresystems.be/imaging/tiff/tifftags/privateifd/ exif/exposuretime.html> instead of the Exif tag ShutterSpeedValue < http://www.awaresystems.be/imaging/tiff/tifftags/privateifd/ exif/shutterspeedvalue.html>.

In the camera1.txt XMP panel file, the ShutterSpeedValue field is defined as (the Adobe Forum Web UI will break the formatting)

static_text(name: ‘$$$/AWS/FileInfoLib/Panels/Camera1/ShutterSpeed=Shutter Speed:’, font: font_big_right, vertical: align_center);
edit_number(format: apex_shutterspeed, precision: 2, format_addin: ‘$$$/AWS/FileInfoLib/Panels/Camera1/ShutterSpeedFormat=^0 sec’,locked: true, horizontal: align_fill, xmp_ns_prefix: ‘exif’, xmp_namespace: ‘http://ns.adobe.com/exif/1.0/‘, xmp_path: ‘ShutterSpeedValue’);

I changed this to:

static_text(name: ‘$$$/AWS/FileInfoLib/Panels/Camera1/ShutterSpeed=Shutter Speed:’, font: font_big_right, vertical: align_center);
edit_number(format: decimal, precision: 4, format_addin: ‘$$$/AWS/FileInfoLib/Panels/Camera1/ShutterSpeedFormat=^0 sec’,locked: true, horizontal: align_fill, xmp_ns_prefix: ‘exif’, xmp_namespace: ‘http://ns.adobe.com/exif/1.0/‘, xmp_path: ‘ExposureTime’);

in order to display the decimal value of the correct Exif tag.

But how can I display the usual reciprocal shutter speed format ("1/160th sec") instead of the decimal format ("0.0063 sec")?

Any help much appreciated!
