So, you all know PHotoimPorter right? The little PHP script I use to move the files away from my camera cards and into the mass storage, while organizing files into a Maker / Model / Date folder scheme.
Anyway,for a while I was depending on Exifer to extract the information out of the files and it was enough for the image files I used ("old" Canon RAW files and JPG's) but recently I used a Canon 30D for a day and those pesky CR2 files where confusing Exifer (who is mostly dead for a few years from what I gather) . So I had to drag my all to lazy ass around and look for alternatives and, sure enough, Core PHP has our back with the Exif module. "Yay" I said, and so I calculated the shortest path to get it running instead of Exifer, did it, tried it, loved it, commited it, pushed it and now I blog about it :)
My next trick is two fold:
"Yay" I said a second time - and promptly published the post and exited the room.
