It looks like crops performed in Photo Mechanic are not showing up in Lightroom versions 10.2 or 10.3. Does anyone know how to fix this issue?
Just to add more detail. These are edits performed in Photo Mechanic after importing into LrC. If you use the read metadata from file, only star rating changes are updated, not the updated crops performed in Photo Mechanic. Camera Bits confirmed the issues and believe it is an Adobe problem.
I just checked over at feedback.photoghop.com where the engineers get problem reports. I didn't see any post about this issue. You may want to post it there where the engineers will see it.
As far as I am aware LrC will apply crops done in Photo Mechanic prior to import into LrC. Crops done afterwards will not! Just my opinion.
I have actually used PM before and after LrC import for years. I had several interactions with the makers of PM and they confirmed they were able to reproduce the issue with the latest versions of LrC.
Looks like the latest version of LrC has corrected the issue.
Upload one of the files that have been cropped in Photo Mechanic to Dropbox or similar and post the sharing link here. If it's a raw file, also upload the .xmp sidecar and include its sharing link. That will let us narrow down the problem and likely provide a solution or workaround.
