I hope someone can tell me how to fix or work around this issue I'm having with EXIF data.
The camera that generated the photos I'm struggling with is an iPhone 4S.
When the photo is loaded onto my MacBook Pro (running OS X Version 10.8.3) into the iPhoto app, it shows that there is data on when the photo was taken (see the first attached image).
I export to a folder using max quality and full size (see second image).
I use A Better Finder Attributes 5 (Trial) to fix the created and modified dates on the *.jpgs to the EXIF date so the photos will automatically line up correctly in the photoset (if I don't fix the created and modified dates, the created and modified time/date stamps are the time and date I exported from iPhoto to the Finder folder.
I'm working on 55 photos and 53 photos processed easily.
However two photos, including IMG_2596, apparently don't have EXIF data and the app won't let me add it in (see third image).
I've exported IMG_2596 four or five times and the EXIF "shot on" data never comes down.
Is there better software out there (even if it costs a few bucks) that will add EXIF info?
I guess the ultimate fall back is manual placement of the photo during the upload to HAZ process and then dropping in the GPS coordinates by hand (@Joe, will what I say work?) and I'm lucky it's only two images, but I'd rather know how to do this so HAZ can process automatically.
Decisionmaking and action should only be informed by, not subject to, healthy, reasonable concern.
That being said, anything worth doing is worth doing to excess.
