For photography related blogs or people interested in image production, exif removing is not a good idea.
It should be configurable, yes.
It would be a good idea to provide options to remove just part of the exif data, like position or personal info.
Being able to configure it in the admin general settings interace (and quality and maxwidth) would be useful.
Are those options you talk about already implemented?
Where should we configure that?
I am using docker and docker-compose to install ghost, so I don’t have access to config files.
I suppose it can be configure in the docker-compose.yml through environment variables.
should I stablish an imageOptimization__keepMetadata: 1 variable in it?
As a photography site we prefer our images not to be touched by the system.
Is responsability of the user to optimize images to be viewed in the web.
If you compress an image, the focus of the image is lossed and needs to be refocused.
It may affect to other aspects of the image.
We prefer to have strict option limits in size (total MP or large border size in pixel) and maximum opupied space.
Is there an option to disable image optimization at all?
Of course thumnails and small versions of the images might be prepared compressing them, but the full blown image showed in a lightbox should be untouched and with full exif info.
