Not having embedded shooting metadata is kinda annoying. There are ways around it, like getting stored data out of the camera, but I don't have the gear for that yet.
- Write a notes.txt for the photos
- Using Windows' file properties dialog box, select all files and add a title, Apply, then do the same to remove it.
I've had a LOT of problems with AnalogExif writing to files and I think it has something to do with the file structure, TIFF files may be more affected than JPEG files but I'm not sure. The files I get from Rewind are very large, probably holding an internal preview or something. I don't think I need to keep it, and letting Windows update the metadata causes that bulk to be stripped, and AnalogExif seems to behave a bit better for it. This is a dumb solution but it seems to help. The downside is that it changes the Scanning Software field, but this really doesn't matter.
Tag dates and camera data with AnalogExif
Use exiftools on the raws to populate the correct date fields, otherwise LR will import using the file's scan date
exiftool -XMP-xmp:CreateDate= "-FileCreateDate<DateTimeOriginal" "-FileModifyDate<DateTimeOriginal" "-IFD0:ModifyDate<DateTimeOriginal" "-XMP-xmp:ModifyDate<DateTimeOriginal" *.jpg
- Import to Lightroom as normal
- Make a collection
- Fix rotations
- Add to All Film Shots
File ordering should already be correct thanks to AnalogExif
- It's common for rolls to be scanned in reverse shooting order, or for file mtimes to be out of sequence
- Adjust seconds/minutes to get all shots to the correct timestamp now
- You can use the Lenstagger plugin to tag the shooting settings, if you have a fair guess at them
- Using Lightroom, move the files to the correct folder on disk if needed. But they should've imported correctly already
- Perform face tagging
- GPS tag as well
Inspect all info on a file, use this to figure out why LR is still seeing a current date on an old film scan.
