Summary0001203: GPS Coordinates Desappearing
DescriptionAfter assigning GPS coordinates to photos and saving them with Geo Setter. I open the photos with Photoshop Elements 11 and the GPS Coordinates are there in the metadata information. If I use the "save metadata to file" command in the organizer the GPS Coordinates get deleted. The same thing happens if I open the photo in the Element editor then close it the GPS Coordinates get deleted. Names off the location stay just GPS Coordinates get deleted.

Now the strange thing is I have used both of these programs together and they have woked excellent for several years now with no problem at all. There has been no upgrade or change in Photoshop Elements 11 to cause a problem. The only change was a upgrade in the ExifTool from Ver 9.65 to 9.67. My new camera put GPS Coodinates straight on to the photos when taken. When they are opened and edited in Photoshop Elements 11 they are not deleted only GPS Coordinates entered through Geo Setter are deleted.

All very strange as I said all was working fine until the upgrade of the ExifTool from Ver 9.65 to 9.67. I know in Photoshop Elements 11 if you use the "save for web" command this will delete the GPS but I am not using it. I am just doing thing the way I have for years which has worked. What I have do now is edit my photo before I put GPS Coordinates in them. Which is fine for photos that I don't have GPS in them yet. The trouble is I have thousand of old photos that I have placed GPS on with Geo Setter that I am going to lose.
Steps To ReproduceJust open a file with GPS coordinates in Elements editor then close with out doing anything and you will lose the GPS data.
