View Full Version : EXIF DATA - A general question
01-29-2006, 08:05 PM
Does anyone know whether or not Pixelpost or Photoshop is the culprit for occassions when exif data does not display in the tags.
I always save my files exactly the same way (using save as) and yet sometimes the exif shows up and other times it goes astray.
A good example is on todays shot where it is missing from the tags which are in my comment template. If I open up the file in Photoshop and examine the file info it shows that the exif info is in the file.
Has anyone got any ideas. It is very frustrating.

hmm while using "save as.." ps always stored the exif info (when i used it..).
while using "save for web.." the exif info disappeared.
in my case..if there's a exif info in the file.. pp was always able to read it

Yes it's very strange - I just tried an experiment with my latest image. I tried image ready and saved the file with the option to embed EXIF. Hey presto the EXIF data appears BUT the IPTC data of that same image dissapeared and it was 100% there before.
To be honest I am sick to the back teeth of trying to make this work correctly. I still think it has something to do with having the tags display in the comments template rather than the image template.
Could this possibly be the cause of the problem ?

i really don't know the pp code in detail (so all the things below are more or less assumptions)
but having the tags in comments or image template should make no difference because the templates/tags are always parsed/replaced by index.php.
before i changed my template, i had the exif info below the image, now in the comments popup. nothing changed here.
so imho it's the way images are saved
[edit: btw.. above info is based on using cs2 + raw plugin 3.1]

I use CS2 and I will check the ACR version and report back tommorow.

One possibility is that Photoshop does not only embed the data in the space for IPTC and Exif. It also creates an additional space using XMP. So when you use file info you may see the XMP data rather than the correct EXIF data.

Washy, It's pretty simple to copy the Exif tags to the image template from the popup. Copy them there to see if your theory of having them in the comment popup is correct.
