I'm using KDE 3.4.2 and the info view list shows:
file name, user comment, creation date/time, dimensions, exposure time,
jpeg quality, comment

(Scroll to the left to see the extra columns?)

Easiest is to load up a few kBytes of software that will do that for
you. When not being used, the HDD footprint is negligible and the system
impact is near zero. Yet it is there when needed.

Note that the info you are wanting is detail that is stored within the
file as part of that file format. You must use some sort of utility to
read the file to then extract/generate the information.

But there's many ways to do this :-)

(Imagemagick is nice in that it is command-line only. No GUI bloat to
bog your system down with.)
