#6372: Ability to remove Geolocation EXIF data

 Photos can have geolocation included in the metadata. The submission
 process should allow contributors to tick a box to have this data removed
 from a photo. An option should also be exposed to photos that have already
 been accepted and are included in the directory for contributors to remove
 location coordinate metadata from the file.

 Some photos are nice to include this data while other times it is not. For
 example, a photo of the grand canyon or other public space is interesting
 to include, but a photo at someone's private residence (even when there
 are no people in it) may expose some private data to the internet.

 Looking through some photos in the directory, I'm able to find plenty of
 images that do include the data. Note this is in the original image only,
 and not in the resized versions.
