How can I display my attachment’s Custom Field?Custom Media Fields

You can now access your custom metadata like normal metadata. In code you can use the following command:

 get_post_meta($id, "_$custom-field", true);

When using the get_post_meta function, always add an underscore in front of the Custom Field name. Is your custom field called ‘camera_type’, use ‘_camera_type’ in the function.
