The plugin affects the image while it is uploaded. Straight after it is uploaded, all Exif data will be removed from the image. There is no original image left, nor made a backup. This plugin uses the removal service of http://www.exif-remove.de .
ATTENTION: This service is intended to save your privacy and should not be used for illegal activity like copyright violations. You are allowed to use this service for legal activity only, this includes that you must have the explicit permission from the holder of rights to clean a file with this plugin! As of now, to prevent abuse, the eventually existing copyright information will be kept inside the cleaned image. To disable this plugin temporarily, just deactivate it within the Exif-Remove settings menu. Thanks.
How can I check whether this plugin is installed correctly or not?
This Plugin is working transparently within your WordPress blog.
There should be a settings menu called “Exif-Remove” where you are able
to (de)activate the plugin. The upload dialogs (in articles/pages) will
not be modified by this plugin, so you won’t see any difference.
