@manton Hmm, I didn’t quite state the problem right (I didn’t understand it correctly at first until I looked more closely), but there is still a difference: the shared/non-cropped photos are tagged (ExifIFD:ColorSpace) with the sRGB color space (ICC profile itself is stripped, but the color space info remains, leading pretty much everything to treat it as sRGB, as it should be), whereas the in-app/cropped images have neither ICC profile nor the sRGB color space tag (both are stripped, leading to inconsistent treatment across apps/platforms, sometimes as sRGB and sometimes as plain RGB).
From my perspective, it would be nice if the color space tag could remain in the in-app/cropped images so that everything the app emits behaved the same and could still be understood as sRGB the world over, but I don’t know if that’s possible :-)
@manton I was glad to discover that (it was one of my worries before I posted my first photo, so I picked one I didn’t really care if the location stayed); generally speaking, I’d “like” an informed choice, but in the absence of one, I’m glad you defaulted to the correct behavior :-)
Related-ish question: why does the iOS app strip the ICC profile from the in-app/square photos when it does not do so for the shared/original-aspect photos? I figured the behavior would be consistent between them (and appreciate the embedded profile keeping colors consistent across devices/platforms/etc).
