I have just spent weeks uploading photos that I exported from Apple's photos program to google photos. Only to find out that all of the dates and critical information were removed from all of my 20,000 photos when I exported them so they could be used else where. I trusted apples iphotos program when I first took all of these pictures and let them go into the iPhoto program. But now I need those photos elsewhere, and it has destroyed all of the meaningful information. How in the world am I to get that information back when I export those photos for other uses? I would have gladly uploaded all of my photos to Apple's iCloud photo library, but I did not want even optimized versions of all those photos dumped back on my phone and iPad. So I finally chose google photos and Google drive. But now I find my photos are worthless. Everything is jumbled because apples photo program stripped them their of dates and important information. How can I export those photos from the apples photo program and keep all of that important information with the photo for other uses?
