Olympus TG4: How to view the "depth" metadata on a computer

Hi

I have an Olympus TG4 which cleverly has an inbuilt manometer to determine the ambient pressure and calculate the altitude or depth of each shot (for underwater shots. I mostly use it underwater).

I can see the depth data shown on the display of the camera, but how can I get it to show-up on my (Windows 10) computer?

I have tried Photoshop (CS6), Irfanview (4.50) and the raw windows OS (Win 10 1709), but no dice. (actually Irfanview and Photoshop both have a field for "Altitude" but they return "sea-level"/0.00m for pictures taken at 10m (33feet) deep.

Ideally, native to Windows, or freeware.

thanks very much

Does Olympus have editing software?

Good question. I have always avoided manufacturer's software since a Canon GPS mapper did nasty things to my computer.

Olympus don't include software cds any more, but there are several things up on their support site that look like they might be viewers or Lightroom-a-likes. Guess I'll have to find an old computer to test them on.
