    If they are yours, you have the original photos. Remove the altered
    photos and replace them.

    Now why on earth would anyone want to steal those. I feel ripped-off just
    by wasting my time in going to view them to see what the fuss was about.
    How can anyone steal something that has no value to begin with.

    Basically you cannot. But presumably you have the original full
    resolution images from which the online versions were made?

    It is quite likely that in a composite panorama image the Exif data will
    be stripped since exposures and time date stamps will vary.
    If you are the copyright owner then you should still have the original
    full resolution panorama to prove it. The image quality on the copies
    you have pointed to is poor. I have occasionally been alerted to people
    using my images to sell things on eBay by folk who recognised one of my
    plants! Most people will desist infringing copyright if asked to do so.

    Showing the hosting site one of the original full images complete with
    all ex-camera EXIF information should be sufficient proof.

    The images you pointed to are of relatively low resolution and heavily
    JPEG compressed with optimised Huffman tables and IJG Q=75 (exactly) for
    luminance and Q~74 (symmetric, and not exact) for chrominance. This may
    well identify the tools last used to compress it for web display.
    The question posed by the OP shows a profound misunderstanding of how
    digital data works. It isn't there any more so it cannot be undeleted.

  7. I could put it back but I enjoyed hacking the GPS info out of it.
