Removing exif files

Recommended Posts

Well hello there, fellow coders/programmers.I am working on a social website for smokers of denmark to gather and share their pictures of different crops, etc.The problem is, cannabis is not strictly legal in denmark.And since it cant be expected that the average user on our site knows how to deactivate geotagging, i wanna make an option that does it for them, making sure that the popos dont trace their grows through our website.Problem is, this is kind of over my level of expertise.Currently i am just referring people to use this site: http://www.verexif.com/en/ before uploading, but having either this function, or the behind coding doing it automatically, would be completely awesome.i have also found a discussion in the wordpress support forum, but i cant get what theyre writing to work. http://wordpress.org/support/topic/remove-automatic-exif-titles-for-uploadsIf any of you would take the time to give it a go, i would be forever grateful ;)Heck, i might even send you a present :P

That post just shows how to not display that information, not how to remove it from the uploaded image. You should do a test to check the EXIF data of the images you're uploading now to see what's there, it might already be getting removed. If not, there are 2 options here:http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3614925/remove-exif-data-from-jpg-using-phpOne of them uses ImageMagick if it's available, and the other copies the image and saves it as a new image. The new image won't have the EXIF data from the old image.
