    Hi Folks,

    Just found this forum.... and it looks interesting. I'm here to learn more about digital photography and perhaps post a few pictures. I know very little about third party web hosting sites except for doing a little googling recently about about photobucket, flickr, imageshack, etc. I haven't actually set up an account on any of them. (Any suggestions about which ones to use?)

    I would like to be able to post photos "anonymously." So I guess what I'm asking is that possible using one of the more popular 3rd party hosting sites.

    What kind of details show up when one posts a picture in a forum? For example does the date the photo was taken, the type of camera used, the exposure, etc details show up in the photo?

    Hope this makes sense....... Thanks for your help...

    Oh..... and by the way... I'm Jason... Have a good day!!!

    Depends on if the EXIF data has been removed or not.

    May I ask why you would care if someone knew the date a picture was taken at? Same with the exposure settings, etc.
    Curious.

    There are certain situations in which you would rather people not know when you were at a location.

    When you're somewhere that you're not supposed to be. Use your imagination.

    Now, should you ALWAYS be paranoid and ridiculous in your pseudo-security measures? No, that would be silly. There are, however, scenarios in which it would be intelligent to strip the EXIF data.

    Actually the "date" is not that big of a deal... I just hurriedly used that as an example.

    I had to google "EXIF data".....:lol:..... So how does one remove it... if they choose to do so? BTW, I probably wouldn't want to.

    What kind of information does EXIF data show anyway?

    Thanks

    ...or just not upload to the web, assuming it's really that serious.

    Thanks for your replies.......

    I do have another question.....

    Do the 3rd party hosting sites show such information such as your ip address... or your account name, etc (in addition to the technical photo data)?

    Thanks

    Most file hosters don't show the EXIF data, or IP address. Whether or not your account name is shown depends on the site. Try tinypic.com for no-account file hosting. If you're really worried, as someone else has said, don't upload it on the internet. Your IP address isn't as hard to find as you think.
