Stip EXIF data from Uploaded Images
Closed, ResolvedPublic


We should strip EXIF information from images uploaded to our server.

The EXIF data can contain information like GPS position or even the Name of the user who created the Image (under Copyright and/or Authors)

Maybe we could allow some data to stay, like which Camera was used or the Exposure time.

Seems like Pillow already strips exif info as a side effect. (Pillow is used by django to handle images)
