When the export options Remove Person Info and Write Keywords As Lightroom Hierarchy are selected, Export To: Hard Drive mistakenly includes a person keyword in the field XMP:HierarchicalSubject.

Hi John,

I'm able to reproduce this problem, and I've reported it to the Lightroom engineers.

Thanks,
Ben

This problem (person keywords included in exports, even when Remove Person Info is selected) still persists for Flickr exports in Lightroom 6.1.1

The bug with Flickr exports is specific to Flickr and appears to be unrelated to the bug described here. See http://feedback.photoshop.com/photosh...
