Colorspaces still get stripped pretty brutally



I think fixing this really should get bumped up the priority list. It’s been a challenge for a long time due to aggressive meta data stripping and I think harms the photoblogging experience significantly.

Yup, that’s why I moved my photoblog away from although it was mighty convenient to post to it.

I’d like to revisit this. There is a work-around right now: if you make sure that all the EXIF metadata is already stripped when uploading, it will preserve the colorspace.

Yes! Generally, the photo uploading experience is subpar. The best workflow I found is quite convoluted. First, you need to buy Mimo for iOS, then:

  1. Put all your photos in Apple Photos
  2. Wait until your iPhone downloads them
  3. Upload photos with Mimo
  4. Copy-paste the links into a post you’re writing on desktop

I’d quite like to be able to upload multiple photos using the native apps and the website, and also copy the Markdown links instead of HTML.

Today I’ve rolled out a change to how photos are processed when uploaded. Anyone want to give it a try and see if the color is better than before? Note that this does not change the display of photos in the timeline; this is just for your blog.

Not sure. The colors definitely look more comparable now but was the sharpness of the photos reduced?

See on (open image in new tab) and see on Flickr.

I can confirm an improvement in color based on a couple of fall photos I uploaded. Now the only differences I see seems a bit like HDR v. non-HDR and some image compression.

Thanks y’all, sounds like the colorspace changes are working. No change to the compression.
