Metadata Copy Mode
RawTherapee let's you decide which of three things should happen to metadata (Exif and IPTC) when saving an image:
- Copy Unchanged - The saved image's metadata will resemble the input image's metadata as closely as possible. None of the metadata changes you make will have any effect.
- Apply Modifications - The changes you make will be included in the saved image.
- Strip All Metadata - All metadata will be removed from the saved image. You might want to use this for privacy reasons, e.g. to remove GPS info.
Note: prior to RawTherapee 5.4, this option was found in Preferences as a "Copy Exif/IPTC/XMP unchanged to output file" checkbox and was global, i.e. it was not specific to any image or processing profile.
