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.

Just found an option in Photos app to remove location data before sharing, thought that was handy and worth sharing here.

Also would love to see more control of what exif data to show as a film photographer. Negative Lab Pro for example has a lot of film specific metadata. It’d be great if Glass supports reading from those fields as well.

It should definitely be optional. If the aim is to focus on the image then EXIF data is a distraction.

I’m a film and digital photographer. I add EXIF data to all my scans in one easy pass using and EXIF app. I also use Negative Lab Pro. With the exception of location, I see no reason to modify the EXIF data in the app itself.

The point is (hence my request): the app is not reading exif when I am posting images.

I am also a photographer, I use Lightroom and set all my exif data correctly on all my files (I know how to do it).

FYI Negative Lab Pro data is not stored in EXIF data fields.

Good thing this is planned, but the discussion here is not about the EXIF itself, its about a feature that uses EXIF data in a way to present information, hopefully relevant to the viewers. Users can always edit their EXIF data trough their workflow, but if you offer a feature, that can only be useful if your user has to do extra work in a completely different flow, then that feature shouldnt be as relevant as it is.

There is as many workflows as cameras and software. EXIF is great if you understand AND care on how to use it. So if you are going to build some features around it, you have to take care of it and define yet another workflow user will have to learn to use and care.

Anyway, EXIF rocks, even tho I actually don’t use it, but if thats the way this app goes, I’ll have to play with the rules of their creators! ( wich is fine )
