Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1285) Include EXIF metadata in image upload
Date Thu, 21 Mar 2013 04:49:14 GMT


Lorin Beer commented on CB-1285:

code is live here:

While we could get this in for 2.6.0, I'm of the mind that it is not in the best interest
of the project to ninja this in the night before the release candidate is tagged. I'd like
some eyes on the code before it goes live in Cordova.

The branch contains the Header Writer itself, and tests. Best way of testing the image output
is with the CordovaExifReader plugin:

I'll post on the dev list tomorrow morning requesting a review of the code before a pull request
is issued

> Now that Cordova only supports iOS 4.2+, it would be great if it would include the additional
EXIF metadata which exists in original image files. Currently this is all stripped. I've noticed
a recent increased trend of iOS apps declaring that they can gain access to EXIF data if the
user permits location information. If EXIF & geo data were passed through this would be
a huge gain for Cordova.
> Related: a similar issue (CB-295) was opened for Android and it sounds like it was implemented.
From the other issue, it sounded like it was a side effect of resizing the image. If no resizing
needs to occur (i.e., the untouched original bits are desired), then perhaps this would help?
