and from a previous thread on the same subject:

This link is for the down load

Did you try this one:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/exif-viewer/versions/

The below is a little time consuming (you have to get past the "I am not a robot" test, the first of which I inevitably fail - ha), but has great detailed info:
http://exif.regex.info/exif.cgi

I like Jeffrey's EXIF Viewer http://exif.regex.info/exif.cgi (mentioned by Linda above).
That site gives the most complete list of EXIF parameters I have come across.

That last one is the one I use most of the time Linda. The browser plugins are OK, but do not have as much information.

I use PIE (Picture Information Extractor) Ver. 7.00.10.80 which can be downloaded for free at www.picmeta.com

If it is a Mac then open file in preview and the exif data is available

Do a google search for EXIF Viewer Alan Raskin. That's the one I'm using with Firefox. No need to download an image to view the data. Simply right click over the image and Exif Viewer is one of the choices. It opens a window over the image with the data, provided the data is there.

As mentioned, PIE (at 11.7 MBs download size)
https://www.picmeta.com/products/picture-information-extractor.htm
and Irfanview for exif/iptc data (at only 3 MBs download size)
https://www.irfanview.com/

PIE is the best offline data viewer that (that's all it does) even thought it's 4 times the download size of Irfanview, not that 10 to 20 MBs amounts to much these days. It's nice that you don't have to upload a photo to view exif data, it's secure and the reader costs nothing. The full license for PIE is $29 or for PIE Studio is $39.

Irfanview and it's plugin pack are free and in IMO, it's the best/smallest/offline/freeware viewer/editor I've used in the last 20 years. You can checkout your exif/iptc jpg/raw data and the file is 1/4th the size of the PIE download. It's not the fanciest GUI but it does many things things besides exif/iptc viewing. The entire collection of x64 plugins is 20-25 MBs, not that one would need them all. It's worth checking out and the fellow accepts donations. sv

I definitely agree. I use Irfanview all the time. Very nice viewer / basic editor.

PIE is awesome for finding out details in the EXIF data you never needed to know. It shows just about everything. If you're not sure what lens you used for a particular photo, it'll tell you.

The only problem with IrfanView is that it's windows only. Other than that, it's really useful. I've been using it for more than 20 years now.

Just tried PIE. It gives results that look about as complete as Jeffrey's EXIF viewer http://exif.regex.info/exif.cgi but the UI might be a bit better.

Agreed, this is the one that I use as well. For Firefox find it here, https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search/?q=exif%20viewer&platform=WINNT&appver=64.0.2
