Recently when showing some pictures on the pictures site Koos van den Hout I noticed that the browser Safari on the iPad actually uses the exif tag orientation. So pictures I took in rotated mode were rotated again by the browser. And the iPad is a bit too smart in this matter: trying to rotate the iPad 90 degrees makes the orientation sensor 'compensate' for this, so the pictures were still sideways.

Solution: clean out the orientation tags after rotating the pictures. And while looking at the exiftool script to do that, I had a look at the other tags in my pictures and noticed a load of information I'm not really wanting to share, such as the camera serial number. A sample of what I wanted was easily found at Removing "sensitive" meta data using ExifTool - underscan and I adopted this for my own scripts.

At the same time I did some updates to the copyright-statement text part so I can for example add a creative commons license statement or no text at all.
