    Like the title says. How do you know if a pic contains GPS data or not? I have a feeling that a lot of nice deer aren't posted on forums anymore due to the possibility of GPS data being exposed.

    So..... how do you know for sure?

    I read several articles. Many sites automatically remove the data so the public can't see. But they still save it.

    Other sites leave it there or in some cases even restore it????

    I think Orson Wells had no clue how bad it could get. LOL

    Now I have never gotten a pic of a NICE buck. So I am more worried about family and kid pics lots of nut jobs out there.
