'Save' a TIFF removes EXIF data

Recommended Posts

When I open a TIFF, do some mofications, flatten the file and save it, AP removes all EXIF data.

 

Would you pls. be so kind and correct this absurd behavior?

 

When I want to export a large TIFF as a small JPEG file, the beach ball shows up and is spinning for a long time, after I have submitted the new image size in pixels. It seems AP wants to calculate the new file size.

 

Any chance that you can correct this, maybe by removing the 'calculate new file size'?

 

On my old iMac this process take ages i.e. when I export a 12.900 x 8.600 pixel TIFF file to a 1.500 x 1.000 pixel JPEG. No chance to do anything else during this time on my iMac...

Hi toyotadesigner,

I will chek the TIFF issue and log it if it's not already. Are you sure you don't have Embed metadata unchecked (click the More button in the Export dialog)?

Regarding the beach ball issue when exporting, yes Affinity is calculating the file size but you can click the Export button anyway to "jump" the calculation part.

Nope, as long as the beach ball is spinning, I can't click anywhere in AP.

The EXIF data are stripped if I just save the TIFF. They are included in a TIFF or JPEG if I export it. However, because I don't like the beach ball I avoid to export <sigh>

 

If the EXIF data are included, they look fine to me.
