Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1285) Include EXIF metadata in image upload
Date Wed, 27 Mar 2013 00:55:16 GMT


Lorin Beer commented on CB-1285:

Thanks Stephen!

I'm going to be putting some time this week into documenting the api and explaining how to
access the exif data from the js side.

There is some very cool metadata included in the header. One in particular: 0x9214 Subject
Area, which appears to be where the face detection routine chooses for the AE/AF target!

>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: iOS
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0
>         Environment: iOS 5.1.1 (iPad 2 & iPhone 4)

> 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?
