Print certain elements of an EXIF array

Recommended Posts

Hi!

Im pretty new to php and all that stuff and I have been trying to figure out an array problem for a couple of days now.
I havent been able to google or find anything that I can understand on php.net.

I'm trying to build a web album with exif information from the images using code from php.net.

With this piece of code I can get out the exif info, but I don't know how I choose which parts of the array I want to print out:
[code]$exif = exif_read_data('path/to/image.jpg', 0, true);

foreach ($exif as $key => $section) {
foreach ($section as $name => $val) {
echo "$key $name: $val<br>";
}
}[/code]

The above code part gives me all the exif info. But I just want to keep maybe 10 elements of the array.

I have tried to sort out using brackets etc. But nothing works. Arrays isn't exactly my strong side...  :)
Anyone who knows how to solve my problem?

Well this is the best option I think:
[code]
<?php
$exif = exif_read_data('path/to/image.jpg', 0, true);

/*Print only these fields that are listed*/
$printThese = array('Exposure','White Balance','Make');

foreach ($exif as $key => $section) {
foreach ($section as $name => $val) {
if(in_array($name,$printThese)){echo "$key $name: $val<br>";}
}
}
[/code]
This should only print EXIF data with a $name that is in the $printThese array. Just add more elements to the array to print different elements. My ones were just examples, you will need the proper names of the EXIF names.
