2555 - PDF wrong Creation DateTime


Recommended Posts


following the priority of the mapping rules Daminion should read (action Read Tags from File) an existing tag "XMP-exif:DateTimeOriginal" BUT it reads the tag "PDF-CreateDate" which is not even defined in the mapping rules.

Hi Uwe, 

Not all PDF files have the tag XMP:Date/Time Original. Therefore it should not be prioritized when reading the tags from the file. 




There is an issue, though. If, say, I edit Creation DateTime in Daminion and write it to the metadata of the files, it is written to XMP: Date/Time Original              

But if the metadata is read from the file, Daminion reads XMP: Create Date. I will ask  my colleagues when can be done about the discrepancy


Kind regards,
