Hello - I hope someone can help!
I need to show in an eBook I am doing the EXIF info from images (Camera, ISO, Shutter, Aperture, Lens, Focal Length, Metering, Flash), but I am getting a return message of <No data from link> for all fields in the Live Captions - except for lens field, which shows up correctly. The EXIF info can be seen in the XMP info file in InDesign, but it just does not pull through when using Live Caption.
I am using Lightroom 5.7 and InDesign CC2014, the EXIF info can be seen correctly in Lightroom, Bridge and InDesign, just not via Live Captions!
Any ideas how to fix this? Plugin required? Script?
Any help much appreciated.
There is a similar forum post that may assist:
There is also an old blog piece by Marijan Tompa where he has made live captions (and taken screenshots of them) with the fields that you are having trouble with:
But read his article in full, as he states that he did have trouble getting some of the captions to work initially until he resaved them in photoshop, then all good.
In an effort to replicate the fault on my machine, it took 5 seconds to get the same fault as the OP using a bog-standard pic that contained relevant metadata. My remedy was to resave the image as a PSD and then the captions worked.
I'd recommend reporting it as a bug.
Thanks cdflash! Funnily enough, I found that solution last night when was trying to find a way to make it work.
Still spent a few hours going round in circles! Adobe may want to make it more explicit on how to use the EXIF / file types for others.
Does anyone know how to get GPS info out of the EXIF info? There does not seem to be an option in the Live Captions.
