An option to hide Exif data at the time of submitting the image. This way it will remain in the Pixoto's database but will not be visible on the Image description page. Pixoto can check for similarities and Pure photos if they have a report for that image.

Hi Dipali, just wondering, why would you want to hide it?

It might makes sense to hide trade secrets, but only as much as I could just google "how to photograph water droplets with reflections" or any such topic and find 50 youtube tutorials for free that will suggest shutter speeds and focal lengths.
Just because I can see what settings you used, doesn't actually help me get your images. I just tried on Friday with some water splashing techniques. Even though the youtube clip gave me tons of free setting advice, my photos still look amateurish in comparison to most of the images here!

I concur, knowing the shutter speed and aperture settings doesn't help me set up lighting or get the timing right on a falling droplet etc. I kind of like that info in the EXIF for myself, having started with film, it means I don't have to keep tedious notes on shots anymore.

LOL ... Anyway exif data are useless (gets you only a part of information), if you are procesing most of your photos in PS or any other program ... :), and what secrets are you trying to hide ... you didn't invent anything new or what you can not find on the internet or in average photo book ... :D

:D I very rarely use photoshop. Just go with the basic editors available for free for most of the images to tweek a little bit. That's true, that you can get everything on the internet. I have learn't a whole lot of things on the internet. Just, when you try something different, and i like to do that, and it's instantly copied, you feel that the exif data should be hidden. After all this is a competition site. Setup for studio work is very easy to guess if the exif data is provided. If someone needs to know about any technique they can always ask.

As I said before ... for everything that you did exist tutorial on YouTube and even I found most of your ideas in Google (I even have an average photo book, which explain everything better than your exif data, and sorry, gets you even to better solutions) ... anyway I'm not interesting in this type of photography and I don't mind if anybody sees my exif data or for that matter, from anybody ... because, every "cook" can tell you his famous recipe, but it is up to you to cook it ... if you know what I mean ;) ... no disrespect, but there is nothing to hide ... ;)

I just remembered one naughty reason why to hide Exif data.To better hide that the two images are basically one and the same, with completely identical Exif ​​data. :D

Yes, some might gain from that, but then I am not asking to completely remove it, I am just asking to not to display it. If someone reports an image which has hidden exif data, then Pixoto report team can always go check the exif data, as it will be in their database.

Here you have some "ideas" for your next photoshooting ... some of them are quite similar to yours ... :) http://www.shutterstock.com/cat.mhtml...

And if you browse a little, you'll find most of yours ideas (even better ones ;), regardless of exif data ... everything else is on YouTube :)

I got your ridicule the first time but I wasn't even talking about those pictures. The question here is not about my photography skills and they are not even addressed to you either so why waste time.

Glad to help you man ... as we all understand when we registered to Pixoto, its Community, not one man page ;) ... and if somebody have "idea" it is essential, that it is discussing, even if it is ridiculous to you ;)
