Preserve key metadata in all image sizes

Who's with me... 


Right now, it seems that all metadata is stripped after four fields are transferred to the asset's menu... Headline, Photographer, Caption, Keywords, except on the hi-res image which does not serve.  


If we can't retain ALL, can we at least get a few additional fields... Copyright info, original date the photo was taken, what else. 


And can this data STICK with the images, no matter the size.  


Thanks!

I don't think keeping metadata in every single photo, regardless of size, is a good idea. It will increase page loads a lot, which eats up bandwidth and makes users frustrated as it slows down their browsing.


I do agree with the copyright info fields, but it might be easier to just put that in the caption for now.


I think a copyright tab is something we would use, but it's not on our minds right now. Spots for: Author, Date Taken, Location (GPS location from camera, if any), Subject, Licence (ie, CC licence, or other), Camera info, etc... I wonder if it could even be auto-filled from the metadata uploaded with the file.
