    Hi !
    regarding sync-ing back tags into Lightroom and loosing the LR recipe, just wanted to share my experience with another processing software.

    I have a Canon camera and use Digital Photo Professional (DPP) – the software bundled with the camera – for RAW processing and also JPG processing.
    (not making artist-like work on images so no need for Photoshop power)

    DPP does not alter RAW and JPG. It stores the recipes within the image but without altering the original. You can revert to shot settings whenever you want. Yeah this stands for JPG as well.
    Back to the point, if I apply some metadata or keywords with IDImager, the DPP recipe is not altered. Plus, DPP can read meta modifications coming from IDImager.

    Thank you for your article .

    Thanks for the comments. I’ve actually gone with IdImager alone. It does what I need it to do, although it’s not as handy as Lightroom.

    I ‘m in very similar scenario beacuse idi stopped to update idimager and photosupreme is still a little toy compared with idimager features….
    So I’m evaluating if and how to migrate to LR hoping to be able to operate the entire workflow inside only one dam software, working for images editing by ACR and not more by Nikon products.
    Unfortunately changes made by acr are not seen from native nikon nef editor, and nef recipes operated in the past years by nik viewnx or capture are invisible to lr and acr, while idimager istantly updates thumbs and previews as soon as you save changes inside nikon software.
    So I’m very disappointed and confused about my next workflow.
