Just one klick more when sharing, and the #exif data is gone.
@axbom And this appears to be the line responsible for making sure EXIF data gets stripped: https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon/blob/main/app/models/media_attachment.rb#L159
@ryan Thanks. Yes, my various searches seem to confirm this as well. And obviously I could just test, but I wondered also if it could differ between instances. Your link seems to confirm it's stripped everywhere.
I was a bit surprised it isn't part of the documentation on joinmastodon.org - at least when I do a site search for exif.
@axbom yup! I was curious about this too and found a GitHub issue where they talked about it. Confirmed with a recent upload that the redownload had no exif
@axbom or disable the addition of the exif data. I am definitely not going to expect Mastadon or anything else to automatically remove such data.
