Description of problem (please provide a set of steps we can use to replicate the issue, and make as many as you need.):
Step 1: Make an observation with Seek (GPS location is there)
Step 2: Post to iNaturalist (GPS location is there, EXIF info like Camera e.g. iPhone lost)
Step 3: Download the photo saved by Seek on iPhone to the Mac (No GPS location or EXIF info like Camera e.g. iPhone lost)
I use Seek by iNat a lot and like it, but one think it is very problematic: the observation photos saved by Seek on the iPhone and which I always like to import on my Mac in my photo library are missing:
- GPS location
- EXIF information
and have the wrong time / time zone as well.
A more minor thing is that the photos saved by Seek are more narrow then what the original iPhone camera took.
The GPS location gets posted by Seek to iNaturalist, if I choose to post the observation. So it is not a GPS or signal issue. I absolutely have the GPS info with the observation / photo. It just gets discarded for some bizarre reason.
I can only image that Seek does that to the saved observation photos on iOS and I hope this issue can be looked into and fixed.
