The Verge: Exif is a clever tool that stops people from stealing your photos

The Verge: Exif is a clever tool that stops people from stealing your photos. “Exif applies an embedding-as-sharing model to photography. Upload your photos to Exif and it will generate HTML-based embed codes that websites can use to put your photos in a post. It replaces the standard way of doing things, which usually requires someone who works for said website to download that photo and upload it to their own hosting service or CMS. These steps sometimes strip out the image’s metadata, and they also introduce break points in the process where that person’s carelessness could mean the photographer never receives (or has to fight for) proper credit and compensation.”
