I’m not sure if this is the correct way to talk about suggestions for HTML standards, but perhaps You could pass it on to the right people.

My idea started as a Photographer. I'm interested in metadata from JPG (and RAW) files or any files for that matter. Since I use JPG as a standard for displaying images, I found out that metainformations like, shutter time, ISO, focal length etc. are available. For a photo gallery it would be interesting to display these data. It could be used for education, selling images etc.

My thoughts displayed visually as code would be like this:

<img src=“milky way.jpg”>
<meta display=“FocalLength”>
<meta display=“ShutterTime”>
<meta display=“Aperature">

I think of the meta code could be displayed as a text string and styled with css. I could imagine other files would have meta data that could be extracted to be displayed and used for other purposes.

Best regards
Thomas Kristensen
