Image metadata stripping


(Pat David) #1

I understand the reasons for wanting to strip metadata out of images generally, but I was wondering if there might be a way to allow us to keep the metadata?

The reason I ask is that we (discuss.pixls.us) are primarily a (Free Software) photography-oriented community. Many of us tend to keep information in the metadata that we’d like to stay intact:

  • copyright information
  • photographic parameters as a learning exercise for others
  • processing information that gets embedded by other software
  • colorspace information
  • and other reasons…

is there a way to toggle not stripping metadata on images that are uploaded? (I looked and haven’t found a setting yet personally).

This is a use case we are interested in. Could we have a site setting that does not strip image metadata @zogstrip to start?
