Missing EXIF Data on Export

Over the last few months I have developed quite a love/hate relationship with A3. It has so many great features, but at times they are over shadowed by slow performance and bugs. The most recent bug to drive me nuts is missing EXIF data, specifically lens model/serial number, flash exp. comp., and focus mode/distance. It doesn't matter how the file was exported, the aforementioned data disappears every time.
A quick forum/web search shows that I am not the only one experiencing this phenomenon, but I was unable to find any solutions. So I guess my question is, has anyone found a fix for this problem?

I share your views. A3 has a lot of great functions. But for this price I would expect to have full geotagger functionality i.e. not only positioning, but also direction inclination angle all kind of data my great Solmeta Geotagger Pro stores in the picture metadata.
Geosetter e free software on PC has all that so why is Apple not able to deliver the same package?

  • Missing exif data

    I'm not really sure how this works but... I need an applescript that will
    (1) search a directory structure,
    (2) find the image files that are missing the exif date,
    (3) write the date created to the missing exif date field
    (4) rename the file using the created date
    I have several thousands of images that are missing the exif information. Any assistance would be appreciated...

    How are you trying to install it? There are two methods the easiest is to download the DMG file. Assuming you are doing the DMG file install are you saying that the installer hangs?
    I don''t install using the DMG file so I can't say if there are problems with it.
    When you get it running I do have a question for you:
    You state that you have image files missing the Exif date information and that you want to add it back
    (3) write the date created to the missing exif date field
    but where are you getting the date created from if it is not in the file? Are you saying you want to use the file creation date? You realize that is not always the same as the image creation date, right?
    4) rename the file using the created date
    So you want to rename the file using the file creation date (which is now also the exif date)?

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

    Where can I give feedback regarding Aperture?
    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.

  • Missing EXIF information on Export

    Hi Everyone,  have just purchased the Canon CP800 Photo Printer for my Mac,   seems as if I can't print any photo from my Aperture 3 library (All the pictures I own are in A3)   The problem,  and its been around for a while .. according to the various communities on the net, is missing EXIF information in the exported JPEG's
    Is there a solution to this ?  or is this a problem for Canon as this printer joes does not see Jpeg's with missing EXIF.
    Thanks everyone.

    Hi Frank,  yes a couple of surprises here,  the First being the Canon Photo Printer CP800 requires some sort of EXIF data on the Pictures in order for it to display on the printerss LCD and therefore enable you to print,  I have found many discussions around this topic,  it relies on certain EXIF data,  likely because you can perform basic enhancements before printing so I guess the printer needs to know something about the image,   by removing the SD Card out of the camera and straight into the printer I can print a picture,   the same picture transfered from Aperture 3 (Latest patches)  to the SD card (Same folder structure) the picture does not appear,  this Picture has had NO adjustments applied to it via Aperture,
    The Problem clearly is with Aperture,  it does not export EXIF data (well some anyway),  seems a few people have this problem with A3 so just wondering when Apple might be planning to fix the problem since all my photo's are now in A3,   very frustrating and the experience was very un apple like.   any suggestions would be handy,  as I plan to return the printer in the next couple of days.   will call canon support soon.

  • 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......?
    Jess Thorsen

    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+.

  • 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

  • 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 '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|
    |Last opened|Monday, May 19, 2008 6:31 PM|Last opened|Today, 9:31am|
    And the meta info on flickr is here:
    Again, no aperture data in either flickr or Finder.

  • 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 using other photo apps besides "Camera"

    I have recently been trying to use the EXIF location and camera info information created with images in the iphone 3GS and noticed that the only image files that have the full EXIF data attached when imported to my computer are the images created using the iPhone native Camera app. I have numerous photo apps that take great photos which when downloaded are missing almost all the EXIF data.
    What is up? Is apple requiring third part apps to strip the data or somehow blocking them from capturing the EXIF location data for download?
    I know many of these apps are using the location data to geotag the images and link to maps.
    Thanks for any info!

    Thanks, I posted it there! Actually I have been searching for some site to officially post a bug report to Adobe, but didn't manage to find it myself...

    Where are you checking the EXIF data and GPS?  When I am looking with "Preview > Tools > Inspector" at the exported versions, the GPS is gone.
    Alternately, try to edit the EXIF with exiftool:   ExifTool by Phil Harvey
    You need the Terminal for that, however.

  • Missing EXIF data after editing picture

    I've noticed that PSE 12 editor no longer writes the EXIF data from the original image.
    I believe this started after upgrading to the most recent version of PSE 12 via Help -> Updates
    Do you have any suggestions?

    1/ to answer your question:
    I don't have any user generated tags/kewords/captions on these historical pictures - but normal metadata (camera EXIF data) is showing up fine on flickr.
    2/ I went ahead and tried Jeffery Friedl's Flickr Lightroom publishing plugin - it works well and GPS data is correctly picked up by Flickr.
    so - unless anyone can demonstrate a working adobe flickr publishing setup with gps data I will assume it doesn't work and continue to use jeffery's.

  • Missing location data when exporting to Flickr

    I am running Yosemite on a new MacBook Pro using the latest version of iPhoto. I noticed that the location data (Places) which I painfully added in to each photo does not translate over when I export to Flickr. Everything else translates with no issues. I use the Share function directly from iPhoto application, not using a 3rd party app. I've use this method of export/sharing for years and location data has not been an issue before.

    Hi Sumit
    Try to set the URL field with the RTF format. To do this try following:
    1. Right click the field->Format Field.
    2. Click the paragraph tab->Text Interpretation->RTF Text
    Now try to export it.
    Hope this helps.

  • Missing numerical data when exporting a PDS

    We are using Acrobat 9 Pro to create fillable PDFs. The PDF is saved on our network drive and then pulled into NOLIJ which a internet based database program.  When we were saving docs as TIFs, there was no problem ( I know it is an image file).  Now that Nolij  changed over to PDFs, some of the numerical data is missing from the PDF when the form is viewed.  Why is this happending and how can it be fixed?

    We can see data such as our employee's name, ID # and dates.  The numerical information we are missing is in the form of an Arbitrary Mask for example 99-0-3005-300-5016.  The mask puts in the dashes.

  • Lightroom 4.1 Geotagging: Interoperability Issue/Missing Exif Data

    I have been using Picasa for tagging and Picasa/Google Earth for geo-tagging for quite some time now. Now with LR 4 I thought I'd give it a shot for these tasks, too.
    I found a problem with geotagging however: image jpeg files which are geotagged with LR 4 are not recognized as having geotags inside Picasa. The other direction works well. I investigated the issue with ExifTool GUI, and I think I found the reason: LR doesn't include the Exif GPS keyword "GPSAltitudeRef". When I manually add this with ExifTool (ExifTool Direct Option in the GUI) as -Exif:GPSAltitudeRef="Above Sea Level", Picasa now recognizes the geotag, too. All Picase/GE geotags have it this way.
    I'd like to request Adobe to include this in an upcoming LR bugfix update, so that interoperability between Picasa and Lightroow is improved. I still need Picasa as a front end to my web albums.
    Thanks and regards
