Add metadata summary info panel

Post by anthonysikorski »

Hello,

It would be nice to have a panel that summarizes the main camera exif infirmation in big font. Attached is an example from DXO Photolab.


- ISO
- Shutter speed
- aperture
- focal length
- camera
- lens

how about
  • separate panel

    OR
  • join it with histogram
also, it would be handy to have ability to undock Info's tabs as separate panels

Examples

Mockup (lazy one)
as a separate panel

you have already some info in 'Properties' at the end

Perhaps moving it at the begin, and more graphical?

Yes the information is there but it’s small and hard to read. I think the new panel should not replace the current detailed information but be an addition to access key information easily.

This shall be separate panel, not another tab inside Info panel.
Its better not to break tabs' list (table-a-like) structure as in future you may deside to add filter functionality to Info panel tabs that will not work with "more graphical" items.

ps: histogram shall be separate panel as well

Some voices black-on gray. Definitely a problem with my custom style settings?

the issue is quite old - not all elements are updated on theme switch, some remain unchanged until app is restarted

I use a custom theme (style_sheet.qss). I used elements from various parts/origins. I don't know exactly how it works, but I managed to get something that works quite well, albeit with some problems.
The problem is not resolved by restarting MP. I have been using this theme for various releases.
