I clicked Minimize Data when exporting to jpg, and all EXIF data was exported as well. I also happened to have minimize file size clicked as well (200k). I am waiting for someone to tell me this is a feature to speed my workflow. Cheers.

  • This bug was reported month ago by someone else. Should it at least be documented somewhere?

What version are you using? I thought this one was fixed.

This happens in my LR 3.4.1 Windows 7. I've attached an original image, a version exported with Minimize Embedded Metadata, and a version exported with Minimize Embedded Metadata and Limit File Size To 200K.

Here are screen shots of the export options:

Minimize Metadata does not work when the Minimum File Size option is also selected. This is a known bug which we intend to fix.
