First thing to note: I tried to post this as a support ticket on the Skylum Support page. 10 minutes later, the gear wheel is still turning on my attempted submission! With the Facebook page no longer taking support questions and the support page itself not working, what kind of support is available!!!??
Anyhow, here's what I tried to post to the support page...
I opened an image in Luminar 2018 from Lightroom and did two things with it after I finished editing it. First, I saved an edited copy in Macphun format back to my desktop for further editing, then I saved a black-and-white version back to Lightroom.
The copy I saved back to Lightroom retained all its EXIF/GPS data. The copy and saved to my desktop did not. To be clear, I reopened the saved copy in the full (desktop) version of Luminar, deleted the B&W layer, made a few additional tweaks, then exported the color image as a TIFF back to my desktop and imported it back into Lightroom.
I have manually added the GPS data to the image, but all the camera info, which was retained when using the Lightroom plugin, is gone from the color image. This is not the first time this happened!
Is there any way to make sure that Luminar does NOT strip the EXIF data from images in those situations!!?? If not, I will have to stop using the desktop version in this way.
P.S. I can't include the .lmnr file here because it's too large!
