matchboxbananasynergy Could you check with another gallery app please?
I will transfer the photos directly via USB next and look at the metadata.
I will have to install one first though, lol. Which is funny because I got the P7P because of its cameras (1st reason was to run GOS :-) ). Been too busy figuring out GrapheneOS security, etc. the past few weeks...
I know that the project considers Gallery to be minimal and that's fine. I normally do my processing of images on my desktop with calibrated monitor, which is why I haven't yet been too concerned about the lack of a better gallery app on the phone - and also why I keep the metadata until just before export, and keep some metadata even when exporting to others.
Off to get a F/LOSS gallery app. Recommendations from readers are welcomed!
I accidentally deleted my whole previous message here. Here it is again
matchboxbananasynergy Did you turn out geotagging for it in the camera app's settings?
The pin on the left side is blue (enabled) if that's what you are refering to.
Location settings "Last accessed" showed that camera accessed Location at the same time as the photo metadata I see it missing in.
I will check and test again but the reason for this missing data is not obvious. The GrapheneOS doc page states that it is "experimental" so it may not be turned on or working - but in that case it should not show as accessing location nor allow me to toggle the Location pin in Camera.
The closest metadata to Location I get is this:
GPS Altitude : 0 m Above Sea Level
(should be about 100m)
Edit: I just emailed a photo directly from Camera while still open after just having made a photo. I sent it via Fairemail. Exiftool shows the GPS data as Iwould expect.
I also emailed the photo via gallery. GPS has been nulled:
GPS Date/Time : 00:00:00Z
GPS Latitude : 0 deg 0' 0.00" N
GPS Longitude : 0 deg 0' 0.00" E
GPS Position : 0 deg 0' 0.00" N, 0 deg 0' 0.00" E
So at this early stage, Gallery appears to strip GPS.
