Loss of information during image upload

Followers 2

Recommended Posts


I upload a picture to my cache page, and because it is a puzzle I added information to the picture that the solver needs to find.  Apparently, during the uploading to the server, the file is changed and the details I added to the image are deleted. I tried both png and jpg and the result is the same, the image is uploaded without the information I added.  Is there a way to solve the matter other than uploading the image to another server and adding a link?

Are you referring to the EXIF data?  As I recall, they started stripping that out a few years ago, because people were uploading hero shots ... at the final location of puzzle caches ... and those pictures included the coordinates ... providing a simple way to avoid solving the puzzle.


I think you're stuck with hosting the image on another server.  (Willing to be corrected!)
