Did you know that you can open up an image file (JPG, PNG for sure) in a text editor like vim, scroll to the bottom, and write whatever you want at the end?

I've been delighting in using this trick to store notes about photos and pictures right in the picture file. 📷

Aah, I just realized it's kind of like the digital equivalent of scribbling notes on the back of an analog photo. :3

@tty is this technically steganography, I wonder?

@sieri @voxel I tested this on photos uploaded to Twitter & Mastodon web client, and both stripped the text out, so I don't think it'd be great for sharing over those media.
