converting TIF to JPG saving EXIF
Jun 24, 2013

I have a bunch of images which have been processed from RAW to TIF, and which contain accurate EXIF information.

I want to convert the TIFs to JPGs for posting, however neither Irfanview nor Faststone preserves the ISO/aperture/shutter speed, despite my checking the appropriate fields in the batch converter.

Is there any program which can perform the batch conversion and keep the EXIF information visible?

Thanks

Are you sure? That sounds very surprising.  I use exiftoolGUI which lives on top of exiftool when I need to know what the metadata really looks like.

I munge my files that come out of my camera to store information from the camera data in metadata fields that Lightroom can read before loading into LR.  So you could move the information you want before processing.  Still surprising though.  What I'm moving is rather obscure camera settings on my Sony camera, not something basic like you are talking about.

ACDSee Pro 6

Probably the Raw Aware ACDSee 16 as well (Opens and displays raw but can't develop raw). Right now, they are VERY close in price. ACDSee16 was just released, and Pro 7 which we expect to share a lot of code with ACDSee 16 to be released "soon", so If you have a specific need that pro 6 can fill, or if you hate 30 day free trials, it's at a good price.

As an FYI, even though I knew it could do it, I retested Pro 6 before answering this query. It converted both my ORF files and my 16 bit tiffs to jpg with no loss of EXIF data no problem. So I feel confident I'm not wrong.

I didn't realize it was an issue until I looked for the EXIF info, but it's apparently a well-known problem with several programs which perform TIF-JPG conversion.    I ended up using ViewNX2, which handled the EXIF info fine, although it locked while processing about 10% of the TIFs

Thanks for your help. I was able to convert with EXIF preserved using ViewNX2. but I'll keep ACDSee Pro in mind

I just converted a batch of TIFFs using FastStone v4.8 and all EXIF data remained intact.

The FastStone results are strange. I can see the EXIF (including the ISO) if I look at the JPG in e.g. Irfanview, but the ISO doesn't appear in either Windows Explorer or in Picasa.

If I convert using ViewNX2, the ISO does appear in both Explorer and Picasa.

so the two programs for some reason yield different results.
