Look, there’s very simple question people ask us to which we don’t have quite straightforward answer.
As long as it’s not easy. Honestly, writing on the back of a paper photo is a breeze by comparison. We explain photometadata and show EXIF examples. We’re also eager to explain the innards of digital photos. We talk about file formats and the effects of compression. Our main concern is for everyone to back up and care for their digital photos. Idea of enabling camera users to add descriptions via the camera ain’t new. For example, whenever enabling users to write captions on film, almost 100 years ago, a major camera manufacturer included an autographic feature on special cameras. For whatever reason, that feature never became popular. Maybe since it was easier to write on the paper photo. Let me tell you something.

Highend cameras have it but I don’t think it’s standard yet on regular consumer cameras. Phone embeds lat, lon, altitude, even angles, I believe. On the topic of stripping data. Only one way to keep the metadata is to download them from the phone to a computer, therefore use them. It strips those out when you try to upload the images to, say, the Dropbox app on the phone. Since some camera phones include GPS data that can reveal an individual’s exact location, one possible reason for social media sites stripping EXIF and IPTC information from images uploaded to them is to protect the contributor’s privacy.
