Rumpelstiltskin Posted October 13, 2017 Share Posted October 13, 2017 I'm using a Canon 9000F Mark II scanner and it's included IJ Scan Utliity to scan family photos to TIFF images under Windows 10 Pro x64. I then use exiftool v10.63 on the image file to set all the EXIF & XMP metadata Date/Time fields (to the scan date/time). Finally I use Paint.net v4.0.19 to modify/crop the image. Paint.net is stripping out all the metadata I set (with exiftool). Here is a copy of the scanned image and it's original metadata (as extracted by exiftool). Here is a copy of the image after adding the metadata via exiftool and resultant metadata in the file. Here is a copy of the image after modification by paint.net and the metadata afterwards. Why is Paint.net stripping the metadata? Can't it just pass it all through and only add or change what it needs to? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
