The new features were all requested by users, according to the Oslo-based Vivaldi Technologies.
The other two new features are advanced download information and an option for toning down saturation for the theme colours of websites.
The image properties can be accessed in the new version by right-clicking on an image and selecting the option on the dropdown menu.
- File name and URL;
- The model of the camera that took the image;
- Depth of field and sensitivity of the image sensor (ISO);
- Exposure and focal length;
- Histogram, white balance and colour space;
- Dimensions and size;
- Time and date when the photo was taken; and
- Software used to process the image.

Vivaldi designer Henrik Helmers said photography and design experts would appreciate instant access to the multi-channel histogram and raw data. "Bloggers can easily get the dimensions of the image. Photo enthusiasts can use this new feature as a tool to learn more about their hobby,” he added
The download panel now shows information about the name of the file, download speed, download URL, destination folder, and date and time. Users can also choose how they want to sort their downloads – by name, type, size, date added and date finished, as well as by address.
And the final new feature, colour control, is done through a slider in the settings, allowing users to adjust the saturation level of accent colours.

“We at Vivaldi want to change the way our users live online. Our strong focus on community and respect for unique user needs drive us in our pursuit to give them more,” says Jon von Tetzchner, chief executive of Vivaldi Technologies.
“While working on some of the bigger features that take a considerable amount of time to develop, we also keep sight of other important functionality our users ask us to implement. That’s what Vivaldi is all about.”
