GIMP preserves EXIF metadata when exporting as JPG - the option is there on the Export dialog and it's checked by default. I agree on the point though - whether or not GIMP needs to load the metadata in an image is distinct from whether the user cares about having that metadata. If you open a TIF file, what happens to the metadata when you export, and especially if you overwrite?
Well I can you if it is a GEOTiff (standard defined set of Tiff tags) they are lost. That of course is true whether you save an xcf or export
back to tiff. IIUC GIMP uses a 3rd party library to read tiff, and I guess GIMP spec doesn't specify if on import if GIMP is to retain meta-data, silently dispose of it, or alert the user that meta-data may be lost. scott s. . _______________________________________________ gimp-user-list mailing list gimp-user-list@xxxxxxxxx https://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user-list
