Remove LR develop via Exiftool

May 1, 2012 2:56 PM

Anyone know the Exiftool command line for clearing LR develop data from a set of files? No one on the Exiftool forum knows

 

Thanks

    Why do you think tyou need to sue Exiftool? Lr reset clears the develop metadata. If it's been saved back to XMP you can overwrite it after reset or just trash the XMP sidecar.

    Maybe people think you've already received a perfectly-good answer?

    Try

     

    exiftool -XMP-crs:all= foldername

     

    I am not 100% sure. Test it on some copies of files before.

     

    P.S. "crs" = "camera raw settings", see here: http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/TagNames/XMP.html

    To be frank, Ian's was a good answer. Messing around with Exiftools isn't something I'd recommend for those who need to ask questions like yours.

    If you want to kill the adjustment metadata, it was the best way to do the job - perhaps the fastest, probably the least effort and least likely to go wrong. But if you wish to treat  it as a learning experience, that's a different matter.

    Well, I read the thread on the exiftool forum, and as far as I can see, they told you how to do it. I've deleted LR Develop stuff from files that I inadvertantly copied it to along with other metadata that I did want copied.

    Don't be ridiculous.
