Windows 7: Show comments of a picture (.jpg, .jpeg etc) in the preview pane ?

17 Feb 2015   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Show comments of a picture (.jpg, .jpeg etc) in the preview pane ?

So I have a lot of pics where I have written long descriptions in the 'Comments' header describing the picture, location and some other details.

I want these comments to appear in the preview pane along with the preview of the picture. Is that possible ?

Looking at the empty space in the preview pane, I can say that the comments are small enough to fit completely in the preview pane with good readability BUT are big to appear in the details pane.

If this is not possible, is there any way that I can see these comments in Windows Photo Viewer ?

Now if even that isn't possible, is there any good alternative to Windows Photo viewer which can handle this perfectly. I don't like this option though

Hope that was clear enough

Sorry for the late response
Most photo viewers/ editors are able to show details of images as you preview them,
Windows photo viewer is not one of them,
Windows explorer has a details pane Organize/ Layout/ Details pane
You can use it and the preview pane for the actual image it's self,

A long description may or may not all appear ?

You can use many third party or window photo gallery apart of windows essentials now at 2013 or 14 I loose track of the current version or google picasa.....
Which have a details pane with all embedded info tags.....
Here's an example of windows photo gallery details pane,
