well, I'm trying to read a string from a jpeg file. the thing is, some image editors save a lot of useful data in the file (exif) which i'd like to read from my app. i was trying to open jpeg with editbox's load file action, no go. also i'm afraid this would be not so efficient. so is there any way to accomplish this one? the best way i'd like to do it is somehow read jpegs like windows' notepad does when you opens them. thanks in advance.
