For a long, very long time I was convinced that Windows Live Writer stripped the EXIF data from my photos. So I tried some plugins (PhotoMetis) that will read the EXIF data and paste it below your pictures as a title. Not the best solution either. I like to show the title as *I* decide, not the way some plugin decides to write it.
So, like many, I searched the internet, arrived on the social Microsoft forum, where there is a latest message that the developers “will look into the issue”. The message dates from somewhere in 2008. Not the best of promises. Nothing appears to have been done, no more messages about the issue anywhere. So, either it has been resolved, or nothing has been done. As I saw no EXIF data, even in the latest version of WLW, my thoughts were that nothing had been done.
