In Lightroom, though you can show the exposure bias in the view options, you can't filter by this metadata. I frequently want to mark all the -1ev images one colour and all the +1ev images another colour. I imagine others using HDR type techniques may want this too.

Native support would probably be better, but you may want to consider a plugin solution in the mean time: ExifMeta.

Thanks snapper,

A little rougher around the edges than native, but gets the job done...

I think Adobe needs to get a whole bunch of credit too: they are the ones who have expended a tremendous amount of effort so plugins can be written in the first place.

And I think you deserve some credit too. Many people just do without features that could be had through plugins, for a variety of reasons - more power to ya...

Cheers,
Rob
