    no capture/creation date in metadata in certain photos

    Oh thanks! that is super helpful. Hadn't thought of using Edit Capture Time to simply "write" the capture time. I just checked, and the first photo is wrong, but not the second. I'll get a previous version of the catalog and see if it gets rid of the consequences of my "write metadata to file"...

    no capture/creation date in metadata in certain photos

    Here's some additional info. The two photos on the right have the "date missing" problem. I just noticed that the first one's date seemed to have changed to today. I think I did "save metadata to file" on it. But it's still in the 2014 filter. What is going on?

    no capture/creation date in metadata in certain photos

    I'm trying to clean up a friend's old LR catalog before migrating everything to LR Cloudy. When we first tried simply importing the original photos to Cloudy we realised that many photos had "lost" their creation date somewhere in the move. So I've gone back to the original LR catalog (upgraded...

    selecting photos imported at a given moment

    here capture dates are a problem because lots of photos have been imported from whatsapp and stripped of EXIF (yes I know, not my photos!) by "recently added" album, do you mean the "menu bar" under "All Photos"? the problem with that one is that when you are importing 20k photos and it tells...

    selecting photos imported at a given moment

    I'm helping a friend move from Photos to Lightroom (around 100k photos). This means we're adding big batches of photos to Lightroom mobile from her iPhone photo roll. We're doing it year by year because the first bulk add of 40k photos seemed to work only partially. As I'm concerned about...

    Store originals locally on Cloudy windows

    I'm installing Cloudy on a friend's new windows computer. No Classic alongside. I've checked the "Store A Copy Of All Originals At The Specified Location" box so that my friend feels safe having a "local copy" of all photos on her machine. I am not sure, however, what happens when she culls...

    "merging" metadata and photographs

    Just putting this here for anybody who might (today or later) have an interest in the saga (and my woes): Apple Photos to Lightroom Classic CC: Step 2

    photos which have lost their capture time

    Thanks, definitely going to peruse that!

    metadata conflicts: how to view differences + does photosweeper touch metadata?

    Oh, I hadn't thought of doing that is it's the same files -- but I could load the catalog in one panel and the files directly from the filesystem in the other! Thanks for that idea.

    metadata conflicts: how to view differences + does photosweeper touch metadata?

    Thanks for the exiftool lines, better than squinting at the listings in the metadata panel and preview inspector!

    Syncomatic not working (fix? alternatives?)

    OK, then I'm reassured, because that is what I had understood it did. But I'm positive that when I ran my second batch of tests, keywords I had set on the two selected photos got added to the neighbouring pair of photos that has the same capture date. I will test it again and let you know, but...

    photos which have lost their capture time

    I'm trying to make sense of the various capture time fields. Here's one example: These two videos were flagged as duplicates by Find Duplicates 2 plugin. The capture date is May 2017, that's correct. But they both have a "Date Time" field which is identical and which is set to 15.03.2018 (a...

    Syncomatic not working (fix? alternatives?)

    Sorry it took me a while to get around to this, but here we go. Here's a small catalog of files I think should sync. One of the three pairs did. The other two didn't. I figured that maybe I was misunderstanding what "merge keywords" meant. I assumed it worked both ways, and that which file was...

    metadata conflicts: how to view differences + does photosweeper touch metadata?

    I'm trying to find answers elsewhere, but it's not very encouraging. For example: Lightroom: Before after comparison of metadata conflicts | Photoshop Family Customer Community It really looks like LR assumes we know where and why a metadata conflicted originated and therefore know if the...
