Is image metadata stripped out by micro.blog 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 Micro.blog will skip it’s usual processing, preserving everything about the photo including colorspace. Definitely want to improve this in the future.
