Metadata in On1 Mobile



  • Brian Lawson Community moderator

    As far as I can tell the only metadata you can access is the star and like/dislike ratings. You get to the star rating by swiping up & down on the left side of the image. A right side swipe sets the like/dislike rating.

    To access images in your Photos album you have to Import them into ON1 Mobile. Tap the icon at the bottom left of the screen to get to the program's Local Photos. There is an Import widget, it looks like an arrow pointing down to a flat surface. Click that will allow you to import your photos after giving permission to the program to get to them.

    I've noticed the lack of metadata as well.  Frankly, it's an ridiculous omission, even for v1, and makes the app almost useless for selecting photos other than what you can visually see on a mobile screen. What's even more ridiculous is that they have an "i" button at the top of the screen and all that is show is the filename on and off? 

    Without this information, I can't see which image was which aperture, shutter speed, etc., which may or may not make a difference ... but for me many times does.

    Metadata / exif etc  would get a +1 from me as well. The 'i'

    In addition to viewing EXIF data, I would like to be able to add captions.  Since most of my photography is travel/out of town and there is often a time gap between shooting and editing, I would like to use the mobile app to at least add Captions (if not keywords, etc.) so that when I return home and synch to my desktop the captions are already entered and I can start editing....

    The only ability that Photo Raw has to add captions is the Text module. In order for the Phone app to add captions, it would also have to have the text module to be compatible.

    It's 'possible' that it could be added in the future, but I would suggest that you add that suggestion to the Ideas page so it gets some notice.
