Apparently cropping or uploading photos to some certain Websites deletes its metadata. I have a bunch of photos which have been cropped and then uploaded to telegram and so far I know that both cropping and uploading, deletes metadata of the file. Is there any way to recover the deleted data?

    If you do not have the original files then no, you can't recover the metadate. – montonero May 15 at 9:29

    unless you ever had the photo with exif data on your harddrive or on a usb stick that you could recover with photorec, no. The data has been removed from the file – user2531336 May 15 at 10:01
  • For next time: use an editor that can preserve EXIF data in JPEG files, such as IrfanView. – DrMoishe Pippik May 15 at 16:55
