@amit That's a good idea. I haven't thought much of all the data that's in photos I have messaged or emailed over the years. Those cows are out of the barn! But I'll start proactively cleaning more going forward.

@alans Yep, that’s one less step to be done before posting. But even when I have some images I plan to share with others (not post on website), I get rid of the metadata.

That metadata is just for me. For some reason, that also is the reason my photos do not go to Google Photos.

@amit When I export from Lightroom I strip metadata, but hadn't done so for my mobile posting process. Now that my media server does it for me, I feel good.

@alans Completely agree. It’s part of my posting flow itself. None of the pictures I want to share ever flow directly — they pass through another app (pico) that remove all the metadata and resize.

It’s easy to overlook but really important. Now, so does my micropub posting f... prettygoodhat.com
