Hi,

 

Lightoom on my iPhone has started to export the photos based on the day I edit and save them to my camera roll as opposed to the actual date the photo was takem. How do I change this setting? This issue didn't have until the last two weeks.

 

Thanks,

Harsihta

I cannot replicate this using a four year old photo, the photo appears in my Camera Rill as the most recent, but checking the EXIF data it shows as 2018.

 

Which version of Lightroom Mobile are you running?

I'm on version 7.3.0

 

Let me better explain 🙂 Image 1 was taken on 9 October, 2021 and I edited it a few days later. When i expported it back to my camera roll on my phone, it continued to show the same date as seen in image 2. However, today when I imported the same picture into Lightroom and exported it back to the camera roll, it saved it with today's date instead of the original date as seen in Image 3. This started happening a few weeks ago. Any idea how to fix it? Basically, if I edit a pictuires a few days later after I took it, I'd like it to show the date it was taken/created when I edit and export it back to my camera roll.

Where are you editing the photos? It sounds like if where you are making the edits is changing the metadata to the date you edit. You said you export from LR, edit and import back in. Why are you not editing in LR? If I send an image back to my camera roll, it's already edited in LR and I don't reimport it, the original still lives in LR.

Here's my process flow: Import from camera to iPhone camera roll > import from camera roll into Lr > edit in Lr > Export back to camera roll and delete unedited photos from camera roll. I checked and do have the metadata option turned on so unsure what changed between two weeks ago and now besides any app updates

Check your export settings in Lightroom Mobile. It sounds as though the export option to "Include Metadata" has been unchecked, in which case none of the original EXIF data (which include capture date/time) would be included.

Hi Jim,

 

I do see the metadata option turned on so not sure what's casing the issue.
