I just uploaded some photos and it says just below the title:

Autosave-File vom d-lab2/3 der AgfaPhoto GmbH

What? And how can I prevent this?

Looks like some EXIF magic happening... where are you seeing this exactly? In the public gallery or in your local version? Any photo I can see publicly with this? Will go upload something myself to see this in action as well.

I tried uploading a few photos and am not seeing this anywhere

two of the photos (the 5th or so in the current list, Syria).

I noticed Olympus Digital Camera stuff as well, but that has already been a while.

Interesting, I'm not able to reproduce this myself, but it looks like that information is automatically being entered into the 'Description' field (were the photos uploaded using the bulk upload or the single upload version?). So you should be able to get rid of it by editing that field (in 'my' photo gallery (click on the Edit Information links next to those photos). What I have noticed is the date the photo was taken automatically being filled in, which is nice as I often can't remember :) Not sure when this kicks in, but it undoubtedly has to do with how the file was saved originally and maybe also camera type. Peter?

Thanks Sam.
I was single upload version by the way. Just deleted the stuff, but not sure what you mean with the date of the photo that was automaticall being filled in. I had to that manually. In fact, I remember that with one photo I forgot the year (2005) and it said: error, photos in the future are not possible

Tried the single version too, but not getting it. Might be of course that my camera isn't actually adding exif data to my photos, but it's a pretty new camera so I wouldn't expect that. The date pre-filling doesn't work on the single upload, because it can't read the photo before it's been uploaded (and you fill in the date before uploading). If using the bulk upload I've noticed that the date is often entered automatically once the photos are uploaded; quite handy

Just following up on this.. sorry, been away, so a bit slow.

Some cameras seem to include their camera information in the "Description" field of the exif metadata. In your case, I'm suspecting it was actually a film-scanner adding that information.

Easiest way to changes or get rid of all these descriptions at once is by ticking all the relevant photos and then scrolling down to the bottom of your gallery and hit "Edit selected" . You can edit them all on the one page that way.

Incidentally, this feature of pulling out exif data can also be used to your advantage. In certain photo applications you can add tags, desriptions, titles, etc.. if you have done that, then we can pick up on that and use it to make the process of uploading photos a bit faster.
