Uploader .3 is not blurring faces when uploading to Google Street View

Uploader .3 is not blurring faces when uploading to Google Street View. It does in MTP and Mapillary.

This is odd @mikejbb . I will investigate with Google as this should (as I understand) be done by Google after upload.

In your doc, it says the uploader will blur the faces and plates. Maybe it means Mapillary will blur and they do. But I’m uploading to GSV…

I’ve read, but I can’t remember where, that Google says if the api is used, the user is responsible for the blurring, but I can’t find the reference. I’ve seen a whole lot of unblurred faces on Google, but I can’t tell how they were uploaded and Google is way under stress as we all know. I’ve looked at some of my uploads that were done thru the GSV app and the ones I’ve seen are all blurred (I’ve uploaded over 55k images thru the app so I can’t check them all). So I’ve blurred in Lightroom before I export when using the uploader.3.
