Hi Alan

EXIF data from the returned photo in mobilePickPhoto probably shouldn’t be relied upon. On iOS it definitely won’t be there. 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).
