Critical: Orphaned Images - Copyright Metadata Incorrectly Stripped!


Sep 04, 2014 08:51AM EDT

I've got Koken using ImageMagick 6.5.4, set up to retain image metadata. Despite this, Koken is stripping out all the metadata embedded into my original images regardless!

Not least due to the UK Government's copyright reversal, allowing orphaned images to be used without permission, it is vital that metadata is not stripped out, so that copyright information is retained. It is critical that this is urgently corrected!

Please would you publish an urgent fix, or at least advise how I can hack the code to prevent this happening.

Mike – just to make sure, have you viewed the original files you are uploading in an app like Adobe Bridge or something similar to verify they actually contain EXIF/IPTC metadata?

Yes, I've used ExifTool GUI and all the originals do contain the relevant metadata.

Mike – We’re not seeing this in our tests. Can you send us the URL, email and password for your Koken install so we can take a look and also send us a link to a specific image on your site that is improperly stripping the metadata? support[at]
