Description of problem (please provide a set of steps we can use to replicate the issue, and make as many as you need.): When using Chrome or Safari to create observations on my iPad, the photos I select from the Photos app do not get their metadata loaded. If I use the same photos in the app, they do load. This has been happening for at least a couple of months, although I don’t specifically remember using the iPad this way before. Maybe it never worked… I normally upload observations on my Mac laptop, where I’ve never had this problem, but recently started using the iPad when I travel.
Step 1: On Safari or Chrome apps on the iPad, log in to the iNaturalist website.
Step 2: Upload an observation and select photo(s) from the Photos app. I have the same problem with photos taken with my iPhone or my Sony camera.
