Question for all. Is it just my computer?

16 years ago

Since I installed the program for my camera (Pentax *ist DL) I have noticed something weird. I did not notice it before the install so it may be something in Windows XP that I had never paid much attention to.

Let's say that I save a photo from a web site which I did a few from here today to show as an example.

When I open "My Documents" and hold the pointer on the photo I get this type of information from the photo.

Take Eric's photo titled "Sunset on Toulouse #2" for an example.

It does not matter what the photo is of or where it came from. The same type of information shows up.

Another example. One of my DD's was checking into Bindi Irwin (The Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin's daughter) and a new show that she is planning with Nic. When I thought I would use one for another example.

This is the Photo that the above information came from.

Note the date the photo was taken was back on Aug-18-2005.

Does all computers running Windows XP do the same thing? Or is it something with my camera's programming?
