smugmug strips mine to make load times faster
A lot of times the stuff I post is processed to the point that the data gets lost.
Not like EXIF data really matters anyway. Why would it matter if all the best pics in the world were taken with a FUJI disposable and scanned into digital existence? They'd still be great pics. The data only helps to critique a noobs work by saying something like "use a higher F number" or something of the sort when dealing with getting things in focus.
So nobody can tell I shoot everything on automatic.
I don't even have exif reader.
Exif Reader FF addon ftw
probably so you can't find out that they're shooting everything in automatic
Not sure about the new version, but I know older versions of Adobe PS "Save for web" strips it. I'm guessing CS4 does it too.
but if the data is stripped, i.e. by smugmug/flickr, then there's nothing for the addon to read.
there's just a check box that says whether or not to preserve the metadata
mine has the box checked by default for some reason, never unchecked it
I strip exif so no one knows I shoot with a P&S...
no idea where it is in CS3.
when i shoot in Jpg, edit and resave, it's stay in in.
when i shoot in nef, edit, and save in JPG its gone. =(
i don't strip mine, i have two places i usually upload pictures, imageevent and flickr. imageevent will strip it out once it is uploaded but I'm moving away from using them anyway.
this is true, i just looked back at that thread I made with pics of my niece, and there is no exif data but its on the flickr page if you look
who cares, EXIF doesn't matter, camera settings don't matter.
Because I steal all my pictures from other people.
and crop so that the watermark is gone so they can be remarked as your own?
i dunno let me post a pic and see
edit oh thats why nothing usefull shows up
who cares about exif, its rarely interesting or useful. Rarely.
Though it is handy for noobs to check out the exif, so they can gain some understanding of the technical process behind an impressive photo, without having to annoy the fuck out of you with pointless questions.
because if i ever wanted to take the exact same picture as you, in the exact same location, with the exact same light, with the exact same camera and lens, ill know exactly what to set the camera to!!
Flickr strips if you don't post the full size pic, and I always post med or large but never full, so no exif.
