    Have you tried the 'Read metadata' option in the Photo menu?

    According to page 40 of the user guide...

    Thanks for this thread Brian! Very insightful, I’ll try to avoid the import step and see if I have more success.

    Thanks!

    Hi Rick, I did, but sadly to no avail…

    You might want to open 2 .xml files — one from FastRawView and the other from Photo RAW. I would do it with copies of the same image to keep things simple.

    Open them in a text editor then compare them for differences. The 2 programs may record the EXIF data for star ratings differently. If so, that would be something to tell support about.

    This is what it looks like in an .xmp from Photo RAW. Including the leading spaces for indentation.

       xmp:Rating="3"

    If I remove the .on1 sidecar file and then alter the ratings in an external program or ON1 both programs see the rating change.

    I think at this point my best bet is to avoid the import functionality, if I do that I seem to be able to get the workflow I am looking for.

    At some points ON1 only seemed to only write the rating to the ON1 file, but not to the XMP file.

    "I am using FastRawViewer to cull and rate my photos before I move on to ON1"

    May you explain why ? Culling and rating are so easy using ON1, why do you use 2 softwares, so 2 workflows and so having problems ?

    Just for my curious mind ;-)

    Hi Subias,

    ON1 is a great tool for photo editing, but I don't like it for culling very much, it's too slow for me. I want to quickly switch between RAW pictures and see what's sharp and what's soft, which picture is good and bad before I move to ON1 to actually edit the photos that I think are a success.
