We’re also expanding streaming from Adobe Fresco globally, so anyone can stream their drawing and painting process regardless of language or location. …

Stormy followed her brother’s advice to pursue graphic design, and fell in love with the process and the art of the discipline. She received her degree in graphic design from West Virginia University and a Master’s in Visual Communication from Arizona States. …

The Unknown Canyons of Kyrgyzstan by Albert Dros

Introducing a new feature on Behance: Exif data! Exif data can be an important source of knowledge in figuring out how creatives capture images or what tools they used in their creative process. Project images will now include data on a range of settings, such as exposure, lenses, focal lengths, and software tools used. When Exif data is present on an image, logged in Behance members will see an Info button in the top left corner over the image on hover.

Learn more about how we display EXIF data here or see it in action in this incredible project from Albert Dros.

Looking to manage how EXIF data is displayed on your own images? Read our full FAQ here.
