Minolta Viewer panic...

    I was trying out the latest update to Minoltas Viewer software, just to
    see if it had got any quicker. It hadn't.

    Normally I use a combination of Graphic Converter, GIMP and Photoshop on
    my iMac using OSX 10.2.8. However, Minolta Viewer does have a very good
    Curve adjustment tool, albeit very slow.

    I was checking the EXIF data in the viewer today, and found that one
    entire folder of my images had lost the EXIF data! These also took
    longer to load into the thumbnail view (so I guess it uses EXIF data for
    that). Other folders were fine, although I found the odd one or two
    images had lost the data.

    I often browse the images using Graphic Converter (as it has a very fast
    browser feature), and use the 'Save-As' to create a copy for editing for
    Emails, so I wondered if it was this, but I have used this on all the
    folders.

    I rechecked the errant folder in GC, and found that all the EXIF data
    was in fact still intact. Now, knowing GC as I do, I would trust that.

    Has anybody else found such faults with proprietry software? And, could
    this be used as a warning to other users of the Minolta software?
