OK, everyone here having problems with EXIF please go try www.picresize.com . Just upload your image to that site, select 1024 pixels and in the file size box type in 245-250 kb. When you're done, download that new image to your device so you can post it here. This fix should work for everyone.

Sorry, Caroline. There's no EXIF showing in this one.
Strange. I explicitly made it with my iPhone and used a shortcut that preserves the exif. So probably the problem is somewhere in the resizing.

I made a change to it, so now it should have Exif data.... but... it also now shows my location. Hmmm....

Yes, some cameras and most phones have location services turned on as a default. It can be turned off, but unless it's a sensitive location, I just leave mine on.

:) I consider it as sensitive information, in this case, as it is in my garden. I would have no problem with it if it were somewhere in the fields surrounding me. So I will leave it for now.

I finally had to go down to 1,000 px on the long side. 200/in and limit the file size to 240kb in LR export to get it to work.

now it should have an Exif, after lots of changes and trying,

only in my opinion the quality is now so bad that it looks terrible, certainly compared to this Picture in this same thread. Picture of Southern Gent

Hi Caroline. This is one situation where clicking on the image brings up a much higher quality picture as well as the EXIF. For some reason this seems to be one of the quirks we have to deal with because of recent upgrades to the forum software. We're still trying to work that one out.

Regardless, your picture looks great and the EXIF is included now.

Three days left to get an entry in, remember the rules about EXIF! It’s best to upload directly to the forum, within the forum file size imits. If you upload or link the image oversize, the forum software will resize the image (possibly may also reject an oversize image) and strip the EXIF.
