  • No EXIF data

    Prior to the update to 5.4.3 most images uploaded to our photography forum had EXif data attached. Since the update NONE of the images has any EXIF data available. Is this a vBulletin issue, or should we be looking somewhere else?

    I believe vBulletin 5 strips out the exif data.

      Would it be a Feature Request or an Improvement Request?

    As some of us run photography forums, the preservation of exif metadata is valuable - paramount, even. Can you provide any assistance in identifying how vBulletin strips the metadata and any suggestions as to how to preserve this data? I'm guessing it has something to do with the way ImageMagick is called from vBulletin?

      We could just about live with images uploaded and un-resized if this would retain the exif data but I've just tried this and I'm still not seeing any remaining metadata. Where would I find the original unchanged image file?

        All EXIF data is stripped, even on images that are not resized. EXIF data is not secure and can be used to compromise a web server.

          I put in a feature request for EXIF data to be made available on Dec 18 last year and have heard nothing since. Was this considered at all? Other photography forums seem to get by just fine allowing members access to EXIF data. Sorry, but I think you guys are being just a bit too anal on this issue.

            Its in the Dev Queue currently. This is the highest priority queue that it can be in.
