Camera Raw: Adding metadata to Olympus OMD files that formatted square removes square crop

I shoot with Olympus OMD cameras. You can shoot squareformat with these cameras in-camera. The resulting Raw shows as square when I lookat the file in Adobe Camera Raw.


The problem is that when I ‘star rate’ the image in AdobeCamera Raw, the program then reformats the file back to a rectangle. Not a regularformat, but a squashed and stretched version of the square. So, when I actuallyprocess the raw, I have to re-crop it.

Why won't the square cropped image that i shot in-camera stay as a square in Adobe Camera Raw?


I spoke with someone about this 2 years ago, but there’sbeen no update to sort this out.

Did you ever find a solution? I have the same problem with files from my Fuji GFX 50S.
