Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1285) Include EXIF metadata in image upload
Date Wed, 29 Aug 2012 19:57:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-1285?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13444362#comment-13444362

Stephen McKamey commented on CB-1285:
-------------------------------------

I haven't been because I do want the original image. Here some example code which reproduces
it for me.
{code}
var useCamera = !!confirm('Use camera?');
navigator.camera.getPicture(
    onSuccess,
    onFail,
    {
        correctOrientation: false,
        destinationType: Camera.DestinationType.FILE_URI,
        encodingType: Camera.EncodingType.JPEG,
        quality: 100,
        saveToPhotoAlbum: useCamera,
        sourceType: useCamera ? Camera.PictureSourceType.CAMERA : Camera.PictureSourceType.PHOTOLIBRARY
    });
{code}

No matter if I click OK or Cancel, the EXIF is stripped except for the Orientation tag.

> 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?
