Helicon Filter and Commons

Unread postby Peter1234 » 09.04.2013 23:30

Hello,
I used Helicon Filter 5.2.2 (30 days trial) for editing some of my photos. Now, the problem is, when I upload them on Wikimedia Commons the EXIF data are totally wrong and I really don't know why. In Windows 7 and Helicon Filter itself the EXIF data are still correct, even after editing, it seems to be a problem about Commons. Maybe someone uses Commons too and can help me.
Here are two examples of uploades files wrong EXIF data, you see them at the end of the site:

Thanks for help

We use Exiv2 library for exif handling which is quite advanced and often updated. Can you please send us (support@heliconsoft.com) original image so we can experiment?

Ok, I sent it by mail. Hope, you can help me. Maybe you can also try an upload on commons.

We use EXIV2 library to parse and save Exif information. It looks like either EXIV2 does not write exif information correctly or Wikimedia cannot read it properly. I must say that I do not know any other program which has problems reading our exif data. Anyway, we are waiting for EXIV2 developer reply.
