RC5: Remove Metadata = Change Timestamp ?

Post by kaptainkory »

I think removing metadata (IPTC, EXIF, or All) should NOT change the image timestamp. Right now, it does. What do other people think?

Yes, because you save the file after removing metadata...

IMHO the timestamp should be kept, or set back to its original value after saving.
