Hi

When exporting from LR CC desktop to my local hard drive every picture date is set to export date, not original date taken. How do I set my LR to include original EXIF-date data when exporting to local hard drive?

Thanks.

I don't play around with EXIF data that much, so I can't give you a lot of help. But every image that is saved from Lightroom CC to your desktop is a new image, and your operating system timestamps it accordingly.

Yes, it’s a new image/file but the EXIF from the RAW-file should be carried over to the Jpeg. Every other RAW-converter does this. Even Lightroom Classic. Usually the exported EXIF contains dates for ”picture taken”, file crated and file changed. Files exported from CC sets all these three dates to the same date (file export date), which is not the way iy should be. With this flaw, I can never open an exported jpeg and check when it was taken.

Please, can an Adobe tech engineer confirm this is the case with LR CC

Here is a link to the forum where it's best to make those kinds of suggestions:

Well, I'm not an Adobe engineer but I can confirm that the capture date IS supposed to be included when exporting from LRCC. I've checked it on several images and can confirm that is the case. So, what tool are you using to check the EXIF dates of the exported file?

I just use command-i on MacOS when a jpeg is marked.

I have an automator-script that renames any image (from a camera) to ”date taken + original file name” where the date taken part is extracted from the exif. This is how I noticed it was something wrong with the exif in the exported files. Very time I used my script the files was renamed to export date.

I will try a 3rd party Exif reader to se what actually is included in the exif.

Pretty sure that Cmd-I doesn't show image capture date, it just shows file created date and file modified date.

Let us know what you find out from your 3rd party tool, but both Lightroom Classic and Jeffrey Friedl's EXIF viewer both show the correct capture date on files exported from LRCC.

I notice the same issue. The export JPEG does not contains any exif metadata. I read them from the Mac Preview App.

 

Has anyone a solution to fix that?
