Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1285) Include EXIF metadata in image upload
Date Tue, 03 Dec 2013 18:24:36 GMT


Lorin Beer commented on CB-1285:

Hi Omar,

I checked out the blog. While it gives great information, I would not recommend parsing image
header binary in js if another option is available. The plugin I pointed to provides a very
simple way to access image meta data.

There has been more than one person asking about the plugin, and if you can wait a few days,
I will try to get to updating the plugin asap.

I know of no way to access the date the picture was taken from the JavaScript side of the
bridge, unfortunately. The only way is to either parse the metadata or use native code to
retrieve the data.

> 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?
