Calamitous export of photos (bug on Exif / iptc).

The export of photos is calamitous in Lightroom CC (cloud), for the properties of the photo (Exif data, ...). How much does it cost to remove Bugs? Remove the surfboard from the test manager! 

Detailed procedure:

The photos have different origins Canon, Android smartphone, Ios, Epson Scan, ...

Sometimes the exif properties of the photo have been modified with Windows Explorer. Sometimes the image of the photo has been modified by Photoshop or another software before the upload in Lightroom.

In Lightroom, the photos are cropped, ... and the properties (exif) are changed in one or more times depending on the information collected on the history of the scanned photos. Albums are shared from LR; the albums are read on a browser with the share address. 

Several exports are made:

- Lightroom: Save in,

- Shared album: export a photo,

- Shared album: export the entire album into a Zip.

 

Results:

Often the three exports of the same picture do not give the same result (values ​​of the properties exif / iptc) between them and with the display Lightroom! The displays of the properties of a photo in LR and in the shared album are always good. 

Example of problematic fields: shooting date, copyright, title, caption. We notice the error because a field is empty or has an old value.

 

Do you have an immediate solution?

Thank you.

philippe, 

Of these:

"- Shared album: export a photo,
- Shared album: export the entire album into a Zip."

Are these both exports initiated from the Lightroom Web interface?

Your Question:

Are these both exports initiated from the Lightroom Web interface?

 

Response :

The problem occurs

-for shared album mode not connected  https://lightroom.adobe.com/shares/xxxxx

-and for the LR Web in connected mode  https://lightroom.adobe.com/libraries/xxxx

-and for the Portfolio Album when sorting by date!

 

Sample data:

-the modified date of shooting on LR does not appear in the exports web (the old date is visualized)

-Key words entered on LR do not appear in the web exports, but visible on screen.

A doubt about the data Title / Legend / Object.

 

If Author and Copyright are two different fields how can you edit the Author field from LR?

How to display all Exif and IPTC fields in LR?

Is there a LR CC guide on IPTC and EXIF data?

I checked with the Lightroom Web team and this is a design limitation of the current implementation. There isn't a short term solution but it is something that team is investigating for future updates.
