Lightroom CC Corrupting EXIF Data

  • 2
  • Problem
  • Updated 4 years ago
Hi Folks:
As soon as I upgraded to Lightroom CC, I noticed missing metadata on photos I was exporting. This problem appears on my website (https://hermosawavephotography.com/potd/) where I display exposure information taken from the image using php's exif_read_data function. (When I look at the image in Preview the metadata seems fine)

Here are some bulk data dumps, after the Lightroom upgrade, and before for reference:

Probably a typo in your code, no?
