Since I already have an excellent comprehensive file folder structure in Microsoft Office for all my images, I don't use Lightroom to store them. And as far as I can tell, once an image has been imported into/tweaked by/exported out of Lightroom, Lightroom keeps no record of any adjustments it made to that image. Furthermore, as far as I can tell, when importing an image previously tweaked by Lightroom back into Lightroom, those tweaks do not automatically reappear. However, as an afterthought I just opened the excellent software product PIE (Picture Information Extractor) and lo & behold, discovered if an image has been tweaked with Lightroom, all that Lightroom activity is imbedded within the image, and PIE extracts it right out under an 'XMP' section heading. Since I'm still a neophyte with Lightroom, let me ask this question: Since Lightroom does in fact store its metadata in an image file that it exports, does Lightroom have some function / feature tucked away somewhere I simply haven't found yet...that allows us to display that same imbedded metadata about previous Lightroom tweaks, if I import a previously tweaked image back into Lightroom ??
