    GPS METADATE

    habana1959

      I have just updated Lightroom CC to 2015.9 on iMac with OS 10.12.4 and now I am going to import the new photos but any photo include the GPS Metadata included but I can see them on my Canon. What can I do? Is it a bug of the new version?

       

      Is there anyone with the same problem? Is it possible to resolve or we have to wait for a new release?

      Thank you

          To test my understanding: Your camera is recording GPS location in photos but it's not showing up in LR.  Some troubleshooting steps:

           

          1. Does the location appear in the GPS field of the Library's Metadata panel, as shown here:

          If it does appear, then describe in more detail what your issue is.

           

          2. If it doesn't appear in the Metadata panel, then in the Import window, make sure that Apply During Import > Metadata is set to None, and then import a fresh photo never before imported into LR:

          3. If that doesn't help, upload a fresh photo right from the camera to Dropbox or similar and post the sharing link here.  We can verify that it has GPS location that LR can properly import.

            Hi,

             

            I am facing an issue on similar lines... I can see GPS metadata in LR but after export, GPS data is not present in the exported JPEG.

            I already ensured to tick off 'Remove Location Off' and 'include all metadata' on the export option. Above settings are already ensured to be in place but still GPS metadata is not exported to JPEGS.

             

            Please help and let me know if you need any other details on this.

             

            Thanks,

             

            Amit

                This has been helpful in part, however how do I set other metadata like copyright, name, email address etc as a preset with out it deleting the GPS coordinates?   LR used to allow the preset on import to set copyright, name, email address etc and retain the camera GPS metadata.

                  Edit the import metadata preset and make sure these three checkboxes are unchecked:
