    Websites stripping EXIF data?

      Hi

      I just did an experiment where I downloaded a photo I have taken and uploaded to LinkedIn and noticed that the EXIF data is missing. Basically any author data is missing making this photo available and free to anyone to use.

      When I open the original exported JPEG on my desktop (using Mac Preview) all that data exists so how can it be stripped when published online? I thought that the point of EXIF data was to reduce or eliminate the risk of malicious use of photos.

       

      Thanks
