Site setting for "strip image metadata"

Image metadata is a largely unknown feature. By default we strip this metadata from images on Discourse because users typically don’t need this info and unknowingly including it can lead to unintended sharing of data.

Some communities however, say, a photography-oriented community, might want to keep image data such as:

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

This is now possible by toggling the “strip image metadata” site setting. :strawberry:


Ok very cool @zogstrip! Can you verify that this setting works for you @Patrick_David?


Sweet merciful poop y’all are fast (and here I was updating my build env to start hacking at this to help).

Checking shortly!
