    LR 5.7 update states all 'Metadata was changed externally'

    KevinF17

      After upgrading to LR 5.7 all raw images have the icon "Metadata was changed externally". 

      Trouble shooting steps performed:

      - copy existing xmp file

      - have LR save Metadata, overwriting the XMP files

      - compare copy to the overwritten file

      They only items that were changed are items that are specific to LR 5.7

      Very confusing as to what is a LR 5.7 upgrade issue or an actual metadata change externally.

       

      Examples

      Original file:

      xmp:MetadataDate="2014-03-14T12:18:58-06:00"    

      xmpMM:InstanceID="xmp.iid:2641e498-cab1-6e43-a960-822fe8e76b32"    

      stEvt:instanceID="xmp.iid:2641e498-cab1-6e43-a960-822fe8e76b32"

      stEvt:when="2014-03-14T12:18:58-06:00"

      stEvt:softwareAgent="Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5.3 (Windows)"

       

      After LR update and overwrite of XMP file:

      xmp:MetadataDate="2014-12-12T11:44-07:00"

      xmpMM:InstanceID="xmp.iid:fb75b9eb-52eb-324a-a6d7-409c67d4f4bc"

      stEvt:instanceID="xmp.iid:fb75b9eb-52eb-324a-a6d7-409c67d4f4bc"

      stEvt:when="2014-12-12T11:44-07:00"

      stEvt:softwareAgent="Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5.7 (Windows)"
