I’ve noticed that no matter how I try to do it, I can’t get a JPEG export from Gimp that includes EXIF data. It looks like EXIF goes in, but EXIF never comes back out.
- Rawtherapee (5.3) -> [edit current image in external editor] -> Gimp (2.8) -> [export as jpeg]
- Rawtherapee -> [save as 8bit tiff] -> [open tiff in Gimp] -> [export as jpeg]
Both of those flows strip EXIF from the TIFF before it can make it onto the JPEG. As you would expect, this screws up data in Flickr. I’ve seen similar threads via search, and they say to copy EXIF from a pre-Gimp JPEG into the post-Gimp JPEG, but those threads are old and I would hope that something as trivial as preserving EXIF would be doable within Gimp rather than adding a tedious and hackish workaround step after processing.
Am I missing anything? I’m pretty new to all this. Running all of it on Fedora 26, btw.
