not sure what the deals is but it was adding the exif data to photos after export, now its not.

in the export sections its set to include all metadata, i am guessing that is the setting that would include all of that, none of the boxes are checked in there. just the scrool down bar set to add all metadata..

any ideas why its not doing that.

The metadata info starts around 5:40 of the video (I suggest looking at the entire video just for information). Hope this helps.

You also have to select all Metadata to be saved with the image in your camera.
Check your camera, then Check the LR import - in Library you can check the MetaData of each image.

ok, i updated lightroom, i exported one of the photos that did not have the data, the new one that i just exported has the data, i guess it must have been a issue with the last update i had got.

doing a google search i cant really find any good info. i mean the files for the edits must still be on my computer, there just not showing on the original file. i guess i will restart the computer and see what happens.

i did recently make new folders, using lightroom i exported each photo to a new folder. all the wood duck photos were exported to a folder called wood ducks. all the chickadees were exported to a folder called chickadees, if i import one of those folders to lightroom all the edits are still there.

but in the main folder where i have all of the raw files in one folder some of them now have the edits and some do not.. very strange indeed.

Are you moving all your files to folders within Lightroom or using Windows or Mac?

i have a windows laptop, what i did was made new folders in my pictures folder on the computer. than i used lightroom to export each photo to the new folder, the photo also stayed in the original folder and the edits were still there.. so the new and old folders both had the edited photos. that was before i updated lightroom today.

after the lightroom update. the new folders still have the all of the edits, but only some of the photos in the original folder have the edits...

I'm confused.
In LR you edit the RAW files

then you select files to export,
and export the files to some other folder which is, for all practical purposes then totally out of LR.

The exported files, such as JPEGs should have all the "edits' in them as a permanent file, ie, it is wholly separate from the RAW file. So it should not matter what you do in Windows/Mac to those files/folders as the RAW files are associated within LR.

I'm confused as to how you are doing file management or your understanding of it.
