Flickr crossposting and metadata

Is image metadata stripped out by when a photo post is made? I use metadata pretty heavily on flickr. It would be a shame if the metadata was stripped out…

Yes, all metadata is stripped. Rationale is privacy. I also dislike that this is not an option. Most problematically, color space is lost.

@jsonbecker I didn’t know about the colour space, but that’s not good. Is there any workaround to prevent this?

Yes, if you upload a photo that…

  • is 1800x1800 or smaller
  • has no GPS metadata embedded in it

…then will skip it’s usual processing, preserving everything about the photo including colorspace. Definitely want to improve this in the future.
