Hi, so I've been using Lightroom + the Flickr Export Plugin for Lightroom with my RAW (.ARW) files and while I like it and get good results, some of the metadata I see on Flickr when I upload the JPEG directly is not there. Examples include the name of the lens use and the 35mm equivalency for it. I also seem to get a lot of metadata for the values you can edit in Lightroom, even if I left them untouched.

Is there any way to tell Lightroom which metadata to add/use or to avoid losing this info? Thanks in advance.

Example: http://www.flickr.co...921739480/meta/

Can you provide the original photo for tests?

All seems to be working fine here. Try creating a new Flickr export profile and go through the settings to make sure it exports the metadata. Also make sure you update the flickr plugin once in a while (it gets updated very often).
