Editing Metadata (EXIF)#3

Early testers have asked for more control over the metadata that’s displayed below their posted photo. Currently this is just read from the EXIF data that’s embedded in the image file that’s uploaded to Glass.

+1, adding a film stock field would be awesome as well!

It would be great to also be able to review what Glass sees form EXIF before we post. For me at least the compose screen was empty and asking only for my description. It would allow to make sure I dont share personal locations among other things (I figured it would make sense as part of this feedback but I can submit a separate feedback if preferred).

Agreed on all of this, especially viewing what will be shared as a default, at least.

I think editing or at the very least being able to remove the location is a must - people might be giving away more than they initially intended.

+1 for control over location information.

Yeah, I’m a film photographer, my exif data is useless and it vary from whatever sourse I choose to digitalize them. I could setup my process to add whatever exif data I want, but that makes no sense to my work flow.

It’s just to export your images without meta-data and they don’t show up. :)

I shoot all my photos on the iPhone, but after editing them and placing a border, they no longer show any metadata.

Likewise - after I edit my photo and put a border around it, there is no way to add EXIF data to the photo from an iPad or iPhone that I know of. I really need the ability to do it manually.

@Rishio , you don’t ad the EXIF-data, it’s the softare you use in your iPhone or iPad that doesn’t keep it when you save the edit. Probably because they assume you will upload it to fb or IG where the data will be deleted anyway. So look in the settings if you can save the edit WITH the exif-data. I have the option to keep or not keep the data when i export my photos from Captureone. :)

Hey @Gustaf Jansson , I understand what you are saying. I captured the photo on my iPhone Camera, then I export the photos into a graphics app on my iPad (pixelmator). In Pixelmator, I add a border around it so it is presentable to my liking. After I export the graphic from Pixelmator with the border, it no longer has the metadata. Today I stopped doing the graphic border step and just upload the photo as is, so EXIF is not a problem. I still would like the ability to edit EXIF data, so that I have more flexibility in using photos that run through a graphics editor and lose the EXIF from the original photo. ✪

Hmm… @Rishio I use pixelmator pro (the paid version) when I’m in a hurry, I don’t ad boarders, but I put presets on the image and export it as jpeg. Then the exif follows with the file. I send my rawfiles from my leica via the app and edit them in pixelmator pro.

Edit: it’s the pixelmator photo app I use. So maybe it’s different. I can’t ad frames with that photo version

I believe Pixelmator Pro is for the Mac. I just have an iPad. I use Pixelmator Photo (paid iPad app) to resize the photo, then I export it to Pixelmator, which I use to create a black border around the photo. At the end of this process, the EXIF data is gone. Whether it Apple Photos, Pixelmator or Pixelmator Photo, I found no way to put the EXIF data back in. I’ll play around with it a bit more in case I missed something, but in the end, I gave up and just skipped making the borders for my photos on Glass (because I want the metadata to show and Glass does better with high res images for the desktop viewers), however I do still make borders for IG by just typing in my EXIF data manually in the post itself.

@Rishio , haha you where to fast, I edited my post and corrected me, it’s as you say, I use pixelmator photo with my iPhone.

So I guess its the pixelmator that delets exif-data. One comment on a forum said that the file loses exif if you choose “export for web” on the pro version, but not if you just choose “export”. Haven’t tried the pixelmator myself, but if there is a choice like that, try it if you want.

(I like images without boarders anyway, except if it’s a printed photo in a frame 😁)
