Hi Manuel,

We found the issue!  Believe it or not, it had to do with saving of preferences.  Apparently the setting to embed XMP into TIFF-based RAW files was not being "relayed" to the internal code (despite what the preferences dialog says).  So PM was not updating XMP (which contains pretty much all the metadata especially crops) unless the RAW file already had XMP embedded in it.  This can happen either from a newer camera that puts a rating in the RAW file XMP, or if you were editing a photo from PM5 where it had already embedded XMP.

Also there was no problem if you used XMP sidecar files which you apparently try to avoid with those preference settings.

We should have an update soon and will likely send you a build to verify.


Hi Dennis,

Great! Glad you found the issue.

So, you will let me when a new build is ready to use?

In the meantime, is the workaround to use XMP sidecars? In that case, will checking the third checkbox (along with the other two that are already checked) under “For TIFF-based RAW photos (non-DNG)” in the IPTC/XMP preferences do it?
