In versions prior to Lightroom 4 GPS metadata added by the camera, and location metadata added via PhotoMechanic to the RAW file were imported and shown on the Librar ypage metadata. In version 5 and beyond this data is not imported into Lightroom. although it is in the IPTC data in the RAW image. The only way to get it into Lightroom metadata is to use the Read Metadata function. This is fine as long as the read is done before any image work. If the read is done after image work, all the image work is lost when the meta data is read. Can a function be added to read the metadata without deleting the image work information> Or can all the metadata be imported upon initial import?
