EXIF data handling/storage

I know Discourse strips EXIF, which is fine, but I was wondering if anyone knew the mechanism by which it does it. Specifically:

  • Is EXIF stripped clientside or on the server?
  • If it’s stripped on the server is that logged or stored anywhere?
  • If so is there a best practice on removing it?


It’s stripped server-side by ImageMagick. It’s not logged or stored anywhere.

Not sure what you mean by “best practice”.
