Transfer of metatags from Revel to Lightroom

Hello,

When I transferred my 12'000 pictures from Revel to Lightroom, I lost many tags: events/ dates/ even people sometimes. What do I need to do to make sure I do not lose any tag during transfer?

Michel,

If you were only working with the Adobe Revel application event information and date changes are not inserted into the images you download.

If you had an event you want to keep as a group, a work around is to create an Album in Adobe Revel and add the photos from your event into that album. When you download the images you'll get an album with photos of that event.

I know that's an imperfect solution but it is what I can offer you.

Thanks for the reply. It helps to some extent, at least for the definition of events. It is not good news that date changes are not being kept. I do not need to download any picture as I still have them on my hard drive. However, I would have expected that all information in the Revel catalog is transferred automatically to Lightroom. I lose about 80% of the work I have made over the past 10 years. This is clearly not an upgrade.

What about the people tags? Why do I lose about half of the tags?
