Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1285) Include EXIF metadata in image upload
Date Mon, 02 Dec 2013 22:02:36 GMT


Lorin Beer commented on CB-1285:

Hi Omar,

functionality for accessing the EXIF data from the JS side required a plugin, which has not
been updated to 3.0.0.

You can see the basic technique here:

the plugin will be updated with droid/wp8 support, but currently is a pre-3.0.0 ios plugin

> 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?
