Up to now I have used Photoshop Elements to manipulate and organize my pictures. As Lightroom gives a more elegant way to do this, I tried to migrate to Lightroom.
After the import of PSE catalogs into Lightroom 4.3 it came up, that Lightroom doesn't care of some data, which were put via PSE in the catalogue and picture file.
1. Most severe is the wrong presentation of the date and time, when the picture was shot. I scanned a lot of negatives and transparencies and added relevant informations by means of my PSE. Because
I would have to check and to correct many thousands of fotos, this fault is a no-go for the migration to Lightroom.
2. Next deficit is the lack of the given information in the field „Anmerkungen“ in the german edition of PSE, stored as Exif Information in „album:Notes=”. I'm very interested, that these information isn't lost when I migrate to Lightroom.
But Lightroom 4.3 doesn't care at all about these notes.
Lightroom manages to give very efficient and sophisticated tools to fine-tune pictures, it has a quick and powerful database, but failes in these basic requirements. I can't understand this.
I started to ask my friends about their experiences with other photo organizers. Up to now nobody reported me similar problems with the time stamp.
Are there any readers, who are willing to assist me in the call for the elimination of these insufficiencies?
Examples of the picture files can be found in my german request, action No 0184016843 and 0183981887
