Many times when I export & send a photo I am asked what my camera settings were (focal length, exposure, ISO, etc). Is there a way to include this data with my exported photo? It would be ok if it was "printed" on the photo or just a sidebar with info (or something like that). Thanks.

First off, when you export your file within lightroomWhen you export a photo within lightroom, the metadata should be hard coded into the file.

 

Are you sure that your problem is during the export within lightroom, or during publishing? Foe example, if you post to Facebook, lots of metadata is stripped.

Ah, are you sure the metadata is missing? Some people viewing have no clue as to how to read the metadata.

And if you sre using s Publish Service in Lightroom, pay attention to metadata options in the particular publishing setup.

There are multiple ways to include metadata with your photos. You can embed the metadata in the image file so that other applications and websites can display the metadata in their own panel by the image, although not as part of the visible image; or you can have the metadata “printed” on the photo itself.

 

If you want to embed the metadata in the image without showing it on the image, that’s built into Lightroom Classic. But that happens only when you export with the correct settings.

The screen shot above is of the Export dialog box in Lightroom Classic. If you want to invisibly embed the camera metadata you mentioned, I think you have to choose All Except Camera Raw Info or All Metadata. If you choose any of the other three options, the camera metadata will not be embedded in the images.

 

If you want the camera metadata visible on the image, that is not built into Lightroom Classic. But there is a plug-in that will do it, called LR Mogrify. You would use its Text Annotation option, and you can read about that by going to this link and scrolling down a bit:

With Adobe Bridge you can easily check which metadata are contained in an image and which may be missing.
