Metadata - living hell ?

Postby Winfried » June 16th, 2013, 5:23 am

Metadata are quite complicated. Although there is something like http://www.metadataworkinggroup.com/ metadata is still a mess.
But metadata are needed if you use a workflow containing programs from different vendors (sometimes it is even true for programs from the same vendor).
For example my workflow:
- IMatch for digital asset management
- Photo Ninja, RawTherappee, Aftershot, Pentax DCU4 for converting the raw-files
- PWP to give the last tuning the images

1st example:
I extracted the embedded jpg from a Pentax *.pef file using the Pentax utility.
I would expect to see the the original time in PWP, but I don't.
So I consider this as a bug.
I attach a screenshot and the output from exitftool for the jpg.
Image_Properties_DCU_JPG-1.jpg
screenshot
Image_Properties_DCU_JPG-1.jpg (33.93 KiB) Viewed 3993 times


Since only 3 attachements are maximum, I will add the output from exittool in the first reply.


2nd example:

I process a *.pef-file with Photo Ninja and create a small jpg (IMGP6825_07_1.JPG) (just the metadata is of concern).
Than I saved this image with PWP as IMGP6825_07_1-1.JPG. Again there creation time of the original photo is gone.
I would this also consider as a bug.

created with Photo Ninja

IMGP6825_07_1-1.jpg
saved with PWP
IMGP6825_07_1-1.jpg (22.18 KiB) Viewed 3985 times

Since only 3 attachements are maximum, I will add the output from exittool in the first reply.

Sorry, I had to zip the files, because *.pdf, *.txt, *.doc are not allowed

If you have a file whose exif create date is shown incorrectly, please send me the file and I will take a look at it. You can email it to support@dl-c.com. If it is large, please use one of the file transfer services.
