P: dc:description field stripped by SFW using "All Except Camera Info"

I export JPEG images from retouched RAW files, using Save for Web. Metadata is set to "All Except Camera Info."

Before retouching, I add extensive metadata to the RAW files, including text to the dc:description field. Unfortunately, that one field is stripped out during SFW export. As far as I can tell, no other metadata is stripped from dc namespace.

Please do not tell me to use Export or Save As. Any such answer is off-topic and not helpful. I just want to report this bug (assuming it won't be fixed, though.)

Photoshop 22.5.1, Windows 10 Pro.

Thanks for reporting. I helped develop this feature (metadata preservation/removal options) in Save for Web years ago with some help/input from Peter Krogh and some folks from ASMP. I'll see what we can do.

 

Would you use this feature if it were consistently implemented across the app in Export As or Save As/Save a Copy, etc?

Yes, I would LOVE to see Export fleshed out. My workflow is:

 

Capture RAW files from tethered camera with Canon Utility

Rename and add metadata (copyright, owner, keywords, description) in Bridge

Copy from capture computer to processing workstation

Batch edit in ACR with Color Checker profiles

Open into Photoshop and retouch/composite as needed

SFW to full-resolution JPEGs (I do not keep finished PSDs for most images.)

Run Bridge scripts to generate lower-resolution copies, Batch Rename using various conventions depending on usage

Further retouching of some low-res images to add descriptive text

Copy to distribution folders in Bridge

Sync RAW files and finished images to various servers/backup with FreeFileSync.

 

I use SFW to create my final, full-resolution JPEGs because of the feature set compared to Export or Save As, but a modern replacement would be great. These are product photos so it is less about artistic editing and more about image processing. I have written numerous scripts (Bridge, Photoshop, Excel, and Powershell) so making all features scriptable would be useful.
