A lot of people are having problems retrieving the exif automatically from images that are hosted on flickr. Even if you have included the exif on flickr, once you have embedded it at POTN, it is missing and AMASS cannot retrieve it. This is caused by the fact that flickr includes the exif only when you embed the "original" file, the original file being the size you uploaded to flickr. This means that if you upload an image of 2400px on the long side to flickr and you then want to post that picture here, you cannot use the original size and will need to choose another, say, Large or Medium, or any size that would be allowed on POTN. However, that means you are not embedding the original file and thus flickr strips the exif and AMASS cannot retrieve it automatically.

Also, and this is important!, make sure you choose the "Original" size and not simply the right size from the BBCode list at flickr. For images of 1280px on the long side (POTN's allowed max size now) this is not a problem as it will only be listed once as the Original size (provided you uploaded it as a 1280px image). However, a lot of people will want to add older images to their galleries that are 1024px on the long side. If you uploaded these images to flickr as 1024px with the exif included and posted them here, at POTN, but AMASS cannot retrieve the meta data, you need to check what size you embedded here because flickr's "Large" size happens to also be 1024px on the long side and so chances are you picked that size and not the Original size. Here is what I mean:

This is an older image of mine that I uploaded to flickr as 1024px on the long side. Clicking on the BBCode gives me this:

HOSTED PHOTO
please log in to view hosted photos in full size.
So you would think to just grab it and that's that. However, note that flickr's default setting is "Large" and not "Original" and this means that even though the size is correct, the exif will not be included and AMASS will not be able to retrieve it.
However, if you click open the list, you will see this:
HOSTED PHOTO
please log in to view hosted photos in full size.
As you can see, my downsized 1024px image is listed twice: once as "Original 1024x699" and once as "Large 1024x699". The Large 1024x699 will strip the exif. The Original 1024x699 will include the exif. So it's not just size that matters here, it is what flickr decides is the original and it is that original that you need. Anything else and AMASS will not be able to grab the code because flickr has stripped it.

One other thing to realise is that flickr will protect your "original" images, no matter how you set your preferences in flickr's settings. This means that if you use the Fetch tool it will work, but it will download flickr's "Large" size at best and not the "Original" size and that means that using the Fetch tool with flickr, AMASS will not be able to retrieve meta data. I have tested every possible way that I could think of, played with flickr's settings and in the end the only way that I was able to retrieve meta data automatically from flickr is to manually grab the BBCode for the "Original" size and paste it here at POTN.

Hope this helps.

EDIT: Sometimes AMASS cannot retrieve the lens. This will often happen when an extender was used. My own experience is that with some cameras (like my old 40D with a Kenko 1.4x) AMASS retrieves the lens without any problems. With other cameras (like my 1DIIn with a Kenko 1.4x) AMASS cannot retrieve the lens.

EDIT: The FETCH tool now works with flickr! For this you simply go to the photo page of the photo you want to embed, copy the URL and paste it in FETCH. It will embed only the 1024px size (which flickr calls "Large"), but it will retrieve the exif now. Which is a very nice improvement indeed! If you want your images to be 1280px wide, you still need to copy/paste the BBCode yourself, like I explained above.

Just to add that I host my photos on my own smugmug site and I usually upload to 1200px for sharing. If I embed from there AMASS will also pull the exit data.

I know that a great many hosting sites do what flickr does, i.e. only include the exif when the "original" file is embedded. My own site, ipernity, does the same. But are you saying that when you upload a 1200px image to smugmug and embed that "original" size here, it still strips the exif?

Thanks very much. I was baffled as to why the information was included in the images I posted.

So, when uploading pics to flickr, I cannot use the original file size? I have to upload 1280px size to flickr in order for this to work?

No need, you can embed the original whatever size it is, AMASS/POTN will automatically resize it at the good size on POTN as long as it does not "weigh' more than 10MB

This is not correct. Embedded images cannot exceed 1280px on the long side and have to be less than 2.5MB in size. See the Image Posting Rules here: http://photography-on-the.net/forum/imagerul​es.php
Uploaded images (hosted by forum server) however will be resized.

So yes, when uploading pics to flickr, you cannot use the original file size if you want AMASS to retrieve the exif data automatically. You can of course fill in the exif data manually.

So why it work very well when i fetch a picture like this one ...
2024 pixels wide on 500px become 1280px wide on POTN :-)
For me it means that POTN when you use the function "Fetch" resize the picture too, exactly like when you upload, no ? ;)

With the Fetch tool AMASS retrieves the size that is allowed (and available - this also depends on your preferences on the hosting site) and is in fact not resizing anything. Note that your picture is not 1280px on the long side but 1170px.

Oh ok, I thought AMASS was also resizing it, in fact i was a kind of lucky with 500px :lol: :-P

Yes, lucky indeed, because 500px clearly does better with the Fetch tool than my own site ipernity or flickr. :-)

Here's what the Fetch tool gives me with ipernity. And of course AMASS can't retrieve the exif either... :rolleyes: :-x
