Depends on your image app, there's probably an exif viewer app out there. I just use Photoshop to see it. I can't change the site to stop exif data being displayed, you have to delete it yourself before posting a pic.

There is a free image program called Gimp which I use on a PC, you can export images without the exif data. There are probably simpler apps for phones, might have to Google.

Even easier. I use this method all the time.

Select the file in Explorer.
Right click
Goto Properties at the bottom
Third Tab at the top. "Details"
At the bottom in blue "Remove Properties and Personal Information"
Second Pickbox option "Remove the following from this file"
Pick the Lat and Long - I presume that is what you are hiding? :D
Select "Ok" and your secret spot "x" is still a secret.

Forum has been quiet.... a little too quiet lately, even on the chat bar nowadays. But plenty of traffic still hitting the comp thread by the spot hunters.
People come looking, hoping someone else has posted something. Then they post their latest fish on their Facebook page.

Sportfish Tasmania was getting 600+ views per post, but few were posting.

So many people supporting the Zuck, Trump and USA social media giants, dunno what to say :mrgreen:

Some good fish in the Seadogs comp this year tho, despite the fact 2020 has been a tough one for many people.

Still heaps of traffic through FFF, but people fill their trophy wall on FB/Insta.
