I understand not wanting people to look at your stuff, makes me nervous too.:rolleyes:

I'll tell you why I don't like EXIF.
When some people look at a photo, especially for critique, they judge the photo based on the mechanical aspects instead of the image quality.
It's like judging a book by it's cover.

I've never seen that as an issue.

Here in POTN, at least, "sharing" is more than just sharing the images but also about sharing info and helping others to learn.

'Course, for those who prefer not to share something like Exif shooting info, well, to each their own, but that doesn't mean there is something "wrong" with making the Exif available, and it doesn't make people who glance at the Exif "sneaky" or "snooping". This is, after all, a forum that is about photography and photography gear and the use of that gear. It includes sections for sharing images, and posting images is a very useful part of many of our discussions, but so is sharing info and helping others!

I'm indifferent to it. I never look at it so I don't really care if it's there or not.

I obfuscate code as well by running server-side stuff that you can't ever see. Why let someone else take your hard work?

If someone wants to learn, they can ask questions. I'll happily answer anything I can.


Using server side code is not obfuscating. Making your HTML all on one line, is dumb. (and I'm not talking about minimizing)

There is nothing in an exif file that gives away any of your hard work. People who feel that way, generally have small penises. :p

And that was my main point... if you're posting images here on POTN, you're most likely doing so in order to help others and or get feedback on your own images. Not having exif makes things more difficult for critiques, or even just for people to look and learn from things.

If you're just here to show off your stuff, and or hope that someone here will buy something from you, then well... you have a small penis. :lol:

Heh!

At least even when PBase does the resize the Exif info is still displayed on the site. So, if anyone really wanted to tear apart my shooting style they could always look at the shot on the site:)!

I never said that I eliminate the EXIF, I said I don't like it for a particular reason.
Seems like it's a big deal to some, but I don't let it bother me when I look at pictures.

I really never look at the EXIF on pictures on this forum, and yes I do like to LOOK at all the pretty pictures. If the data is offered as part of a discussion, and I'm interested, I'll join a discussion.

I will admit I'm not a pixel peeper or engineer.

I look at exif so I can learn. I try to include exif in all my shots. In my early PP days, I was really good at losing exif, but I have now learned to keep it intact in my workflow. Smugmug does a nice job of presenting the exif to the viewers if they want it.
