View Full Version : EXIF information incomplete

01-07-2012, 12:44 PM

Fabrice asked me to post this in public, so here we go.


The software does not store the whole EXIF information!

I have resized a picture with LIR and with Irfanview and then extracted (copied) the EXIF information of each file to the clipboard.
Attached there are three files: The original EXIF data (copied with Irfanview), the EXIF data of Irfanviews copy and that one of LIRs copy.

As you can see, LIR does NOT store the vendor information, thus the elementary data as the owner, the camera serial info and the firmware info is missing.

Why can't LIR simply copy the complete EXIF information as Irfanview does?


[I will not attach any file to this post as I think it might be very clear what I am talking about]

you can post the files if you don't mind, it won't hurt if we need them
I send the post to Philipp to let him check this.
Please confirm the exact Light Image Resizer version you have to be sure.

I have removed the files in the meantime. But you should find them in your facebook messages!

LIR copies all the EXIF information, unfortunately the used API was damaging the vendor specific data (MakerNote).
I've implemented a different approach. Please check out this version:
EDIT: link removed, obsolete

Let me know if this works better!
