Hi Monte

Thanks for the info, though that is bad news. It had previously come through on iOS ok - when picking a photo from the library, and also on Android AFAIK.

Do we have any way of getting EXIF data from an image picked from an image library using MobilePickPhoto?

Thanks again for the info!

On Android it definitely won?t be there if calling mobilePickPhoto with width and height parameters but if those parameters aren?t used it might be there (depending on what the camera app does).
