IPhoto '08 loses exif data when exporting RAW to JPG

I'm using a Canon 40D shooting only RAW. I just recently noticed that when I export to JPG, iPhoto loses quite a bit of important EXIF data, including, aperture info.
Is this a known issue, or is it something unique to my system?

I guess I misworded it. I understand that the info doesn't go away or come back. Either there's a problem in both Finder and flickr (I've uploaded the file to flickr.com) where neither finds the info in the jpeg or there's a problem in the way iPhoto writes the EXIF data to the file.
Today, I downloaded EXIFViewer for an alternate look at the EXIF fields and the aperture data is there according to EXIFViewer. So, now I think the bug may be with flickr. Can't really call it a bug in Finder, since the expected functionality for finder is not to get "aperture info", but "More info."
In any case, these are the fields in the More Info:
|Device make|Canon|Device make|Canon|
|Color space|RGB|Color space|RGB|
|Profile name|Adobe RGB (1998)|Profile name|Generic RGB Profile|
|Focal Length|44|Focal Length|44|
|Alpha channel|0|Alpha channel|0|
|Red eye|0|Red eye|0|

And the meta info on flickr is here:
Again, no aperture data in either flickr or Finder.

  • Where can I give feedback regarding Aperture? I'd love to see the ability to removes EXIF data when exporting, especially to social networks.

    I'd love to see the ability to removes EXIF data when exporting, especially to social networks.

    For any normal Export, simply cilick the list of option and further click on Edit.  There deselect to include Metadata, and there will be no EXIF data exported.  But no copyright info either.
    The option already exists to do what you want.  Once a normal Export has deselected that, I believe even exports via plugin for say FB will not have it either.  I tested with an export to SmugMug after deselecting in an earlier ordinary export, and EXIF info was not transmitted.

  • Exif data when exporting images

    Hi, I have question about Aperture writing its signature in the exif data when i export pictures to websites like Flickr, in the past i used DPP, and it always shoved "digital photo professional" under more properties, just this is missing all the rest is there.
    Is there a way i can get Aperture to get that pice of information in there......?

    There's a simpler method which you might consider using.
    What file naming convention are you using on import? Why not rename your camera files on import into Aperture something like " dateclient_joboriginalfilename ". You could then either use that, or export with that name plus a sequential numbering scheme.
    Or -- the same as Viren's excellent suggestion -- select all the files you are going to export, create duplicate versions, with the duplicates still selected create a new Album containing all of them, then use Aperture to rename the Versions prior to export and export using the Version name. Versions don't use much space (they are text files), and you end up with an Album of neatly numbered Versions of just the photos you've given to your client +with the file names of their files exactly the same as your Aperture Version names+.

  • Geotagged iPhone Images lose location data when exported?

    Gudday fellow iPhone warriors, here's my vexing issue:
    This morning I used the Flickr and Panoramio iPhone Apps to upload some geotagged images from my Camera Roll and synced iPhoto Events (yes, I can confirm that all my images are tagged, and they show up in Places on iOS4).
    When these geotagged images arrive at Flickr and Panoramio, they contain no location data.
    Is this location metadata stripped from the images as they are exported from the iPhone? If so, who can I make the suggestion to, to leave the location data intact when I export images from the iPhone?
    Cheers, and thanks in advance for your words of wisdom ;O).

    Thanks for the prompt response!
    Did a little extra research, got some more information:
    - yep, the Flickr iPhone App is busted (per the App Store user reviews)
    - yep, the Panoramio App is busted (per the App Store user reviews)
    - my metadata permissions for both Flickr & Panoramio are good to go
    - pics emailed to Flickr from iPhone *lose their geotag* data
    - pics emailed to Panoramio from iPhone *lose their geotag* data
    - pics emailed from MacBook Pro Mail as small, medium, large *lose geotag* data
    - pics emailed from MacBook Pro Mail as actual size retain their geotag data
    - pics emailed from iPhone Mail lose their geotag data
    So, looks like iPhone email app is one of the culprits, and the Flickr and Panoramio Upload Apps need to be updated to take advantage of the new capabilities in iOS4 to use image EXIF metadata.
    I'm going to try another test tonight:
    - upload an image from the iPhone to the iPhone DropBox App
    - check the metadata of that image from DropBox on my MacBook Pro
    Can you think of anything else??
    I was quite shocked to see that Apple Mail strips the metadata of images that are resized for emailing...

  • IPhoto '08 corrupts EXIF data on export

    Hello All,
    In using iPhoto '08 (including the latest update to 7.1) I am noticing the when I export files the EXIF data is getting corrupted.
    My original files are fine--all EXIF data shows up properly, and galleries which I post to that are capable of displaying EXIF data display it just fine. However, when I export a file from iPhoto to JPG format, the galleries are unable to display the EXIF data. Using the Firefox extension, 'EXIF Viwer' ( https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3905 ), I see there are errors in the data (screenshot here: http://jaaulde.com/exif_viewer.png )
    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    It may be the server side software that's causing the problems. Another thread went thru something like this extensively and we found that files from some cameras, Canons for one, are not read properly by the software. We've downloaded the files and read the EXIF data and it was all there. I have a gallery of files from various cameras as an example: http://gallery.mac.com/toad.hall/100196. Click on the "i" button in the slideshow and you'll see those that get the EXIF data correct, primarily the shutter speed, and those that do not. I don't remember the thread but you can search this forum for "EXIF web gallery" or similar.
    Do you Twango?
    TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto database file and keep it current. If problems crop up where iPhoto suddenly can't see any photos or thinks there are no photos in the library, replacing the working Library6.iPhoto file with the backup will often get the library back. By keeping it current I mean backup after each import and/or any serious editing or work on books, slideshows, calendars, cards, etc. That insures that if a problem pops up and you do need to replace the database file, you'll retain all those efforts. It doesn't take long to make the backup and it's good insurance. iPhoto doesn't not have to be closed to run it, just idle.
    I've written an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger), iPhoto dB File Backup, that will copy the selected Library6.iPhoto file from your iPhoto Library folder to the Pictures folder, replacing any previous version of it. It's compatible with iPhoto 08 libraries. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.

  • Missing EXIF data when PRINTING jpeg using Print or Slideshow Module (LR2)

    Is there a way to have LR2 include EXIF information when you create a JPG via the Print or Slideshow Module? The EXIF data is present if I export via the Library Module.
    However, if I "print" a jpeg either under the Slideshow or Print Module, most of the EXIF data particularly the camera info is missing.
    Thanks for your help.

    Thanks Bob. I believe I have tried that...when you print to jpeg you have option where to save and I save to same folder and then re-synchronize folder in lightroom. Then I try to synchronized metadata between the original file and the new jpeg but the camera and other exif does not transfer over. The title, caption and copyright does work but your basic info such as camera, ISO, lens, f stop and shutter speed are missing

  • Lightroom looses EXIF Thumbnail when exporting

    I already have deselected "Minimum Metadata", but Lightroom 1.3 as well as Lightroom 2 Beta doesn't embed an exif thumbnail when exporting.
    Is there any trick to do that? Other Data like camera model or shutter speed isn't affected, and the original image imported into lightroom had an exif thumb.

  • Missing data when exporting webi to excel (not 65536 limit problem)

    Hi guys
    I just meet a problem about webi that it will miss data when exporting webi to excel.
    It's not about 65536 limitation, as my webi report do some aggregration and limitation and never beyond that limitation.
    Also there are 2 tabs in my reports, if I split the 2 tabs into 2 separate reports and export them separately, then problem disappeared.
    Any ideas on this?

    Hello Claes
    according to:
    Tools => Import and Export => Specifying the Sequence of the External Data Structure => External File Structure: Specification
    Table EST07 should be part of export file. I am not sure if the packing requirement ist part of EST07.
    Furthermore wirh ECC 6.0 EnhPAck3 some changes happend generally in the area of DG classification.
    E.g. Dynamic dangerous goods classification. I am not sure if these changes are "included" in some sense in the EH&S data download.
    With best regards
    PS: please check this link on the top:
    Refer to "Table Assignment: Specifications"
    I believe packaging requirement is part of table EST0B but this is part of the download file.

  • Export of RAW files loses EXIF data

    I am having a problem when I export files out of the PSE Organizer from RAW format to JPG that I am losing EXIF data on the resulting JPG file.
    I am using PSE 6 on Windows Vista and primarily manage my images in RAW format (Nikon D300 NEF) within the Organizer. I am using the latest Adobe Camera RAW plugin ver 5.1 but I have tried this with the last three Camera RAW plugin versions without any difference.
    I typically need to get the RAW NEF images into JPG format to post them to my blog so I normally select several NEF files at once within the Organizer then CTRL-E (or File, Export, As New Files), select JPEG, then Export.
    The resulting JPG file has no EXIF data for the camera (e.g. Camera make, model, f-stop, exposure, etc) that was on the original NEF file. I am determining this by right-click, Properties, Details on the file within Windows explorer.
    Other tests I have done to diagnose this are:
    1. Opening an NEF file in Full Edit mode from the Organizer then doing a File, Save As (JPEG), the missing EXIF data *does* get saved properly. The problem with this approach is that it is not suitable to export hundreds of NEF files.
    2. I downloaded a trial version of PSE 7 and it behaves identically to PSE6 in this test.
    3. I downloaded a trial version of Lightroom 2 and the export feature works properly in this test.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    My observations of what is happening is exactly what you are seeing with one exception about the XMP update. <br /><br />My reply that I posted about seeing the XMP file being updated was based on the observation that when I did a File > Write Keyword Tag the time and date changed on the XMP file as seen with Windows Explorer. I also looked inside the XMP file with a text editor and saw the updated comments and tags inside. See this section of the XMP file that shows the comments and tags:<br /><br />------------<br /><rdf:Description rdf:about=""<br />    xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/"><br />   <dc:creator><br />    <rdf:Seq><br />     <rdf:li>Baden Smith</rdf:li><br />    </rdf:Seq><br />   </dc:creator><br />   <dc:rights><br />    <rdf:Alt><br />     <rdf:li xml:lang="x-default">Copyright - Baden Smith - All Rights Reserved</rdf:li><br />    </rdf:Alt><br />   </dc:rights><br />   <dc:description><br />    <rdf:Alt><br />     <rdf:li xml:lang="x-default">Fishing boats sailing by our balcony at dawn in Zanzibar</rdf:li><br />    </rdf:Alt><br />   </dc:description><br />   <dc:subject><br />    <rdf:Bag><br />     <rdf:li>Africa</rdf:li><br />    </rdf:Bag><br />   </dc:subject><br />  </rdf:Description><br />------------<br /><br />My original question posted was about the export to JPG and not seeing the camera EXIF info being exported.

  • LR 1.3 Export of NEFs to JPEG Loses EXIF Data

    When I use Lightroom 1.3 to export Nikon RAW (NEF) image files to a new directory as JPEGs, all of the camera EXIF data is missing in the exported JPEGs created by Lightroom.
    In my Lightroom Catalog Settings, every option is checked on the Metadata panel (Include Develop Settings inside Metadata in JPEG...., Automatically write changes into XMP, and all Metadata browser categories).
    On the Lightroom Export dialog, File Settings Format is set to JPEG, and Minimize Embedded Metadata is not checked.
    My images files are from a Nikon D200.
    I run on Windows XP SP2.
    Any suggestions, or is this a bug?

    What are you using to look at the metadata? If you do not check minimize metadata I always get everything written. Some programs cannot see the metadata though.
    >In my Lightroom Catalog Settings, every option is checked on the Metadata panel (Include Develop Settings inside Metadata in JPEG...., Automatically write changes into XMP, and all Metadata browser categories).
    This is irrelevant. For the exported jpeg, the only thing that matters is the export dialog. Also you should generally NOT enable automatically writing XMP data as it will slow down lightroom considerably (see the FAQ and the sticky threads).

  • Maintaining EXIF data when transferring pictures from XP to iPhoto?

    Good afternoon everyone! Hope I can get some help here...
    is there any way to maintain the EXIF data added from a computer using Windows XP. This is when you right click on a photo and go to properties->summary tab (i.e. keywords and comments) while importing into iPhoto? A client of mine spent hours upon hours adding comments like location, description, etc. to each photo and it would essentially be a nightmare re-doing all of that.
    Even an add-on or separate program would be fine. In the event that iPhoto does not work nicely with this, any recommendations for future use on the Apple platform would be appreciated. Thanks fellas!

    You are confusing EXIF - the data about the photo from your camera - with ITPC data - iPhoto pays attention to both IF they are present in the proper fields - the key to transferring EXIF and ITPC data from one computer to a Mac using iPhoto is to have the data properly embedded in the photo of the source computer - if it is then iPhoto will use it on import
    see http://graphicssoft.about.com/od/glossary/f/metadata.htm for more information on EXIF, TITPD and XMP
    Also download EXIF viewer for the Mac - http://homepage.mac.com/aozer/EV/index.html - to view the EXIF data before iPhoto gets it

  • GPS Altitude Not in Extended Photo Info or EXIF Dat ahwne exported

    I have my own website that uses a Goggle Maps plugin to read and show GPS info for photos I upload. When I use Places to capture that info the Altitude info is not stored either in iPhoto's database or in the EXIF info for the photo when exported. Is there anyway get this info stored in the database and phot when exported?
    The Google Maps plugin on my site makes use of the Altitude details to show a more close up image depending on the altitude chosen. Without this info the site just shows a extremely high level world map with a pin showing in the country where the picture was taken. Not particularly useful. So I have to go and edit each file on my website and manually add this info. Which is very time consuming.

    iPhoto menu ==> provide iPhoto feedback
    There is no provision in iPhoto to add altitude at this time - iPhoto should maintain the EXIF data that is imported - if it is not then I certainly would report that as a bug
    When I show extended photo info in iPhoto for photos it shows the altitude - I presume it exports - will test later

  • IPhoto 11 - Extended EXIF data where?

    I've just upgraded to iPhoto 11 and can't access the extended EXIF data for each photo that was available with "Show Extended Photo Information" in '09. I regularly retrieve the long and lat of the photo from here so if it is gone it is a problem for me. Anyone else found a way to get to the full EXIF data?

    Howdy -
    What setting do we need to avoid - so that Exif can be displayed when exporting to jpeg?

    If you want EXIF data to be available, do not check "minimize Metadata" upon export.
