I just started with Affinity Photo for iPad.  In my first 'project' I opened an image from the Photos app on my iPad.  I manipulated this image with Af Photo.  I then used the export command to share the corrected image with my Photos on my iPad by using Export, then Share, and then the 'Save Image" action.  When I open the image in Photos the metadata (camera type, location, etc.) is missing.  I have the 'Embed metadata' on in the Export module.  Is metadata only exported if you save to a cloud service by clicking OK and then choosing a destination like dropbox?  Is this a bug?  It seems so.  Am I doing something wrong?

Hi sig_eigei,

 

Welcome to the forum

 

Can you please provide me with further information on the image format that you are opening from Photos and the format you are exporting to from Affinity Photo

At the moment when you open a HEIF image from Apple Photo we are sent the JPEG version of the images and it looks like this version also has the metadata removed from it.

I see. So that means that in order to maintain the metadata I must first export from the Photos app and then pull into AP? Is there another way this stripping of metadata can be avoided ? I suspect it’s in your hands and/or Apple’s.

 

Thanks for the clarification and I hope this import behavior will resolved in the near future.
