Title: The Man With The Golden Bum
Location: BBC Television Centre
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Notes: The sun came out today as I was crossing the courtyard in Telly Centre. It must have been summoned up by Helios, the sun god, who stands with his golden bum pointed to the sky.

Basically, if you edit the metadata with the built-in Photo Info tool, such as adding a tag, it destroys the data used by other programmes such as Photoshop. Of particular problem are RAW files from Nikons, which become unreadable after Vista’s intervention.
Many comments on the aforementioned blog defend Vista, pointing out it’s actually the fault of the camera manufacturers using proprietory formats for the data. However, I believe it’s just as much Microsoft’s fault for letting you do it without giving you a warning that it might trash the original information.
