This. I’m not a software engineer, either. (Well, I’m not active in IndieWeb spaces, like, at all, but I have implemented and am greatly enjoying some of the typical “IndieWeb” building bricks. They’re open protocols, after all.)

One way to deal with this is interpret photo posts’ content as (mostly) plain text, I guess.
