Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1285) Include EXIF metadata in image upload
Date Mon, 17 Sep 2012 22:13:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-1285?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13457408#comment-13457408

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

I think the general expectation is #2 as the returned images may have a life outside of Cordova.
#1 would not only break existing usage but would cause external services to need to understand
how to accept metadata as additional data outside of the image bits. Other iPhone image apps
include metadata directly in the file as EXIF.

> 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?
