Color Efex change of Metadata - Mac

(Sigi) #1

Color Efex changes Metadata:

  • I tag my files in Media Pro 2.0 (DAM software)
  • export in DPL, 16 bit tiff
  • all metadata is there as expected - checked with Exif Tool
  • I open this file in Color Efex, edit and save.
  • Expected result - my Metadata does not change
  • Actual result:
    • Creator: Siegfried Bräuer is changed to “Siegfried Bräuer _” (inlcuding the quotation marks)
    • Lens model etc… disapears
      see screenshots for detail.

There are 3 screenshots with all the data shown in Exif tool for the Export from DPL
and there are 2 screenshots only with all the metadata left after Color Efex - the rest of the metadata is gone hence only 2 screenshots.

I have not done this exercise yet for the other apps from the Nik collection.

Just asked the moderator to move this to Bugs for Nik Collection

Hi @Sigi
I’ve done a similar process to your’s:

  • I tag my files in Aperture
  • open raw (nef) in DPL
  • all metadata is there as expected - checked with Inspector
  • I export the file from DPL into Color Efex in Tiff 16 bit, edit and save.
  • Expected result - my Metadata does not change
  • Actual result:- my Metadata does not change in tiff and jpeg exported in DPL from tiff to jpeg.

So, not exactly your process, but I don’t loose any exif/iptc information at any step.

Hello Pathal,
thanks for checking. What version of DPL are you using? I am on 2.1.2 only as the latest one does always crash on my machine.

Hello DXO Team,

any update on this?

Hello @Sigi,

this topic should have been posted in “Nik collection by DxO” section as the problem comes from Color efex.

I will inform Nik team about it.

Regards,
Marie
