XMP / LR and PM question
« on: April 22, 2013, 01:06:43 PM »
Is possibile to read in PM this, what I set in LR4 and write to XMP files?

Now i copy images from CF card to hdd in PM... I select images by tag them, crop selected images and go with selected images to LR.... In LR set stuff like basic, color, effects and other becouse i croped them in PM... Save all to XMP files in LR... and know i back to PM... but there is nothing change in previews... only change i see i crop... is there possible to see other changes made in LR ?

Lightroom isn't updating the preview in the RAW file to reflect your changes.  You could use the DNG format, which Lightroom will update for preview changes.

PM does read that data.  PM does not have the ability to follow the 'instructions' in that data to render the image.  That rendering engine technology belongs to Adobe alone.

Ok... one more Question...

Is it possible to see in PM tag made in LR (pick "P" - white flag, reject "X" - black flag) or in LR tag made in PM - tick ("T") ?
Or the same colors in both apps, made in one or second app ?

Lightroom doesn't pickup our Tag field which PM puts into the XMP data.  Lightroom does not put its Flag into the XMP data.  It is completely internal to Lightroom.
