Uploading image copyright info is removed

Hi

I'm trying to develop a photography site and have noticed that copyright (and other) metadata is removed from the jpg image when it's uploaded.

I'm not looking to store this information anywhere else, but thought it was embedded in the image itself, so that if someone downloads it from the site, it will still be there.

Is there a way of keeping this information?

Many thanks
Chris

I've discovered why - it's because the image is resized, effectively creating as new image. I've removed the resize and the copyright info is retained. Just need to work out how to limit the size of the upload instead (could this be added to a future version, please?)

Cheers

OK. I've applied the server validations for file type and file size - but the image upload now fails completely.

If I remove the validations, the upload works fine.

Tried this on 2 different pages that use the uploader, same problem with each.

Hope you can help.
Cheers

You have the validation code before the upload code. It can't check the file size or extension through the webassist bindings before it is uploaded.

You could try using the $_FILES array directly. The size should be: <?php echo($_FILES['PgMainPic']['size']); ?>

And then you can probably use: <?php echo($_FILES['PgMainPic']['type']); ?>
it should have the value: image/jpeg

Hi Ray

Thanks - all I've done is use the extension, with the 'file size' option.

I've moved the code block after the upload and this hasn't made any difference - except that the (suitably sized) image IS uploaded, but not added to the database PLUS the validation failure message is displayed!

Cheers

If you can give me FTP access and a URL to reproduce I'll look into the problem and get it fixed.

When using the "File Extension" validation you have to pass the full file name not just the extension. I've updated that and it appears to have fixed the problem.

Hi Ray

Many thanks - works a treat.

Could the tutorial files be updated to reflect this requirement, when you've time.
