Still somewhat a newbie to using apple devices. First iPhone Nov last yr, then Mac & iPad earlier this yr. Was raised strictly a PC & MS guy unti I tried different. My point: I was accustomed to dumping any photos off my mobile onto the computer and easily accessing photo "properties."
Not a problem til I tweaked some photos from vacation and realized the editing apps destroyed most TIFF data (phone cam model, s/ware, date/time), totally erased GPS info, & most of the EXIF data ( flash, exposure, etc...).
Used only reputable apps approved /purchased thru apple's App Store, so it wasn't some sketchy, illegal s/ware or anything. 3 most common apps I use: Snapseed, PS Express, & PhotoPad when I need to resize a large file for email/mms.
I've gotten spoiled to keeping everything on my mobiles without even touching the computer because it's so convenient, and hoping I don't have to edit mobile photos on the computer to avoid losing metadata thru mobile apps. Any help/suggestions appreciated.
I attached a screenshot as an example of missing data. Top 2 squares=data from edited photo taken seconds apart from unedited bottom photo which retained all its data. I use Koredoko v4.2.2 to view my photo data.
Thanks in advance!
