What Adobe has done is unconscionable. I can't be the only one that had THOUSANDS of tagged photographs that are now useless. Does anybody know of a product that will import and read the all of the metadata so I and the legions of other people can sort and catalog their photographs?
I uploaded to photoshop.com a couple of test photos and the caption showed up, but the people, place, event etc tags I had created years ago did not.
Other programs (such as Picasa) will pick up the caption too, but not the tags.
If anything, is there a way to retrieve the tags so I can at least input them manually in a competitor's product if by some miracle there is a tear in the time space continuum where time stand still and I won't die before I can get it done?
Granted, what can you expect for nothing? It is not like they want you to upgrade to a purchased product because no such product is available!
Lucky you. We were in fact testing a new time-space continuum tearer, and inadvertently discovered that the Photoshop Elements 8 tryout (free) could import and recognize all the tags you put into starter edition. If you are concerned about cornering yourself into a solution, you can write all the tag info to the file.
