The issue you are facing:

In the blog post for the update to v28, there was mention of getting the EXIF metadata for images showing in the Files within a “Details” tab in the sidebar.

I’ve recently updated to the latest version, but I’m not seeing the Details tab.

Is there anything I need to do to enable this? I used to use the Metadata app, though it’s nice to have this in the installation by default.

Not sure if that was integrated in the photo app or memories or something like that.

At least the EXIF provider lives in the photos app
