i have the option to automatically save XMP data into the images activated.
so all keywords and metadata changes are not only saved to the catalog but also into my DNG and TIFF images.
now this works fine for everything except the new face recognition data.
i mean the areas (rectangles) where the faces are.
i guess the problem is that the images already contain the keywords (names) of the persons in the images.
what i did was using the rectangles to identify the persons in the images. drawing rectangles around their faces and name them.
this info about the rectangle positions is NOT automatically stored in the image files. not after hours of letting LR run idle.
this info is only stored when i manually save (CTRL+S) the images or do something other to the metadata (like adding NEW keywords to it).
so in short: just adding the face region data (the rectangles) will not trigger the automatic XMP save function when the name keyword was already asigned as keyword to the image.
that´s very bad and must considered a bug in my opinion..
i don´t like to rely on the LR catalog only. it´s unsave even with backups.
i want that the metadata info is stored in the images.
also when i give away my images i want that the metadata is in the images.
that´s why "automatically save XMP" is always active and very important for me.
can somone please test this (it´s easy to verify)
before it´s gets burried under dozend of threads where to get or how to license LR6 vs LR CC.
I don't have any info but repost your original info at this site. Supposedly Adobe reads this and it should not get lost in the clutter I have posted a few bugs there and they were acknowledged but not fixed but Adobe seems to be pretty good at fixing potential data loss bugs/problems which I consider this to be if it is working as you describe.
