When you upload a photo all the metadata is stripped from it. Is there someway you can keep the original metadata when uploading photo's here? Metadata is my only weapon for unauthorized use of my pictures.

There are benefits of keeping exif data, but the benefits of stripping it outweighs the benefits.

Too many photos inadvertently include private information, and most people aren't even aware of it. Stripping all exif tags is the only sure fire way to protect the people who post photos here.

Any btw, exif tags are so easy to strip, they aren't much protection against unauthorized use. The only real protection is aggressive watermarking.
