InDesign CS5 not reading EXIF data
on Apr 13, 2011 at 4:38:42 am

Hi there - my first post. Been searching all over for a solution but no one else seems to have this problem.

I'm trying to create a picture book using InDesign and have JPEG's loaded in direct from many cameras (HTC, Canon etc.)

I'm creating captions using either Live Caption or manually to show the description and exposure details.

InDesign can always read the caption and tags (if it's been set by Picasa in the IPTC tag) but it never shows the EXIF camera details - it just shows . In the links section if you right click on the image and open XMP File Info you can see all the EXIF info is there.

Even dragging images from Bridge does not help.

The only way I can make InDesign read them is to get Adobe Bridge to modify the image by completing a random IPTC field. Bridge won't let you modify EXIF, so presumably that does not get changed, so why that helps I do not know.

Is there any way to get InDesign to read EXIF's first off?

Thanks, Simon
