    Exporting files, keep date

    twdi

      I have shot a lot of raw files and imported them in LR 5.5

      When I have edited and selected the pictures, I export them to jpg files for use on the internet.

      I included all metadata info and remove location info is selected.

       

      After the export, the files have a creating date of today and not the original date from the RAW file.

       

      Is there a way to set the original date directly from the Lightroom export?

          I don't believe so as the exported files are new iterations from the original raw data. They were created today when exported hence that date. Doesn’t mean you couldn't figure a way to somehow get the raw data created into some other metadata field but in terms of what the Finder reports, it has to report when that file was created.
