Hi,

It's been a while and I have gotten rusty... so I am sorry for asking such a basic question....

How do I set LR Classic so that when I export image files they retain the EXIF date and time and other data that the images had when they were actually captured?

I was looking at a recent batch of downloads and the files are all displaying the date of their export.

Thanks....

And it's good to be back.

In the Export dialog, Metadata section, select All Metadata from the Include drop-down list.

After the export, were you looking at the file creation date (which is expected to be the date of export) or at the image capture date ?
Which date is used to organize image imports into Apple Photos and Amazon Photos... I would like to organize imports by image capture date.
