|Status||resolved||Resolution||no change required|
|Product Version||3.3.48 Release|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0000572: portrait pictures loose their exif tags when geo-tagging|
|Description||relates to GEOSETTER 3.3.48 (build 1828) on Windows Vista using EXIFTOOL 8.20 and 8.21|
Some (most portrait) pictures loose their exif tags when geo-tagging with GEOSETTER and EXIFTOOL 8.20 as well as 8.21.
I have not noticed this happen with standard landscape format (4:3), but with almost (!) all portrait and panoramic pictures.
|Additional Information||First noticed using EXIFTOOL 8.20, but I don't know which was the last version without this behaviour.|
I include two examples (reduced size) before and after tagging; picture no. ...84 strangely worked without problems in original size !
|Tags||No tags attached.|

I used EXIFER (latest available version 2.1.5, an old but - up to now - reliable horse) to look at the tags first, and this program does not see the tags and the exif-thumbnail after geo-tagging. Updating the thumbnails in EXIFER actually deletes the exif-tags - and so I did not see them in other tools neither.
So it seems I have to blame EXIFER to kill the tags - but why should EXIFER not see the tags ? And why only in portrait pictures ?
I add a picture after updating it by EXIFER. Most camera-related tags are missing.
My main concern is the tag "Date/Time Original", since I use this for sorting.

Honestly I can not see any problems with your images (in 4pictures.zip and P1210187(EXIFER).jpg). All your images contain Exif data (including "Date/Time Original"). See Ctrl+I in GeoSetter. Also all your images are shown in correct orientation in GeoSetter.
You are right, Exifer does not show all Exif data. It seems that it have a problem with some data, but as Exifer has not been updated for 8 years now, it's not a surprise ;-)
My solution for know is: I don't touch the geo-tagged files any more with EXIFER ...
Too bad that EXIFER is no longer maintained: It has a very nice feature to modify the "date/time original" in increasing steps. I use this for batch-tagging my scanned slides... Maybe you could include this in Geosetter, this way I would no longer need EXIFER.
Thanks for your time to look at the problem !
