Isn't there something in the readme file about it?

=item B<GalleryInfo>

With this option you can define which EXIF information you would like
to present from the image. The format is: '<MyName => KeyInEXIF, 
MyOtherName => OtherKeyInEXIF'

Examples of keys: B<ShutterSpeedValue>, B<ApertureValue>, B<SubjectDistance>,
and B<Camera>

You can view all the keys from the EXIF header using this perl-oneliner:

perl C<-e> 'use Data::Dumper; use Image::Info qw(image_info); print Dumper(image_info(shift));' filename.jpg

Default is: 'Picture Taken => DateTimeOriginal, Flash => Flash'

A::G honors .htaccess files (as it is only a content handler), are you
sure you have the right directory options set to make it work?

Already there, but you found out :-)
