Some lost metadata


Recommended Posts

Hi, everybody, working with an image taken with the camera of my smartphone HTC, I have found that when I do File-->Save as..., there are some metadata that are not preserved in the new image. These are the following:

  • GPSDateStamp: this is the date when I took the photograph acording to the internal GPS of the smartphone. Fortunately, the GPSTimeStamp metadata is preserved.
  • GPSProcessingMethod

Thank you in advance.

Best regards,

Jake

Hi, Rick.

Yes, these are stored as EXIF metadata. I've attached a sample image. I suppose you know about ExifToolGUI. With this free tool is possible to explore all the metadata before and after applying Save as...

Thank you very much for your quick answer.

Best regards,

Jake
