But besides geodata, the files also contain a lot of other information that helps, for example, with sorting photos, organizing a photo library so that the user can easily access pictures sorted by certain parameters. For example, by date, time of year. If you want to post new photos and videos to social networks, but don’t want someone to know where you are, all you need to do is use this quick guide.
