What data does Gyazo capture with each image?

Gyazo saves basic information (metadata) with each image you capture in order to power Ivy Search features on your image pages and homepage. This way we images can be sorted into related sets and be ready to search automatically.

When you capture a Gyazo image and upload it to Gyazo's servers the following information will be included:

 

Data used by Gyazo for Windows

 ● When capturing the screen directly

   -size of the captured image (height and width)

   -foremost window's title and the name of the application in captured image

   -the URL of the source website when it is taken on a browser

   -DPI ratio of the monitor

● When uploading an image file

  -the name of the image file

  -size of the captured image (height and width)

By using this data, we are able to give you a more convenient image search that has never been possible before. It's a lot of fun to naturally explore related images and it is a big time saver compared to tagging and sorting your images by hand.

Please note that this information can only be seen by you, the uploader of the image, unless you choose the option to "Visible" metadata as shown in below.

It will never be provided to third parties by Gyazo. Rest assured, your data is transferred safely to our servers using HTTPS. When you share an image with someone, they only can see the image itself. They cannot see this related information by default and neither can they see any of your 'related images'.
