IHi all after installing this update the exif is missing from my Nikon files when invoking topza thru LR. on my Mac.

Was this data previously kept? Can you list the tags that are missing?

Everything is missing … only file size remains… even in preview on Mac its shows black .

grt Jolanda

is there a way I can upload a few screenshots to show what is missing ?

You can upload images, screenshots, and logs here:

Is there a way to roll back to the previous version? Version 3 will not run on my laptop?

i have uploaded two shots… before. and after in LR

Which version are you looking for? You can go to the DeNoise forum and go to whatever thread has the version you want:

I’ll take a look at this for a future version, but for now if you have a version where this worked previously let me know. You can use the forum to find previous versions if you want.

thanks… yep everything worked fine before this version… so ill go back to 3.0.3.

btw im running macOS fastest versioning adobe CC. subscription .


Does this new version download models or are they all included as before?

Downloadable models aren’t implemented for this one yet, at least not in a user facing way. The installer will drop all the models still.

Hmmm… I have a sample image, and serious that the Standard and Clear models do not de-noise in automatic mode?

The newest version 3.1 strips away two important EXIF fields (used in Photoshop Lightroom):

  • Date Time Original
  • Date Time Digitized

For that reason, for example, sorting by Capture Time messes up.


This is currently being worked on. For now I believe LR has an option to overwrite metadata by clicking the small arrow on the top right of the edited image.


Replying again to let you know 3.1.1 was just released specifically to fix this issue. If you can, give that a try.

Installed updates today (Windows on 5/19/2021) and after choosing the best DeNoise format, it starts processing to save but will never save it, processing forever. Really needs to fix this bug ASAP.

Adam. 3.1.1. fixed the exif troubles for me… thanks for the quick fix

Regards Jolanda

Could you help and provide a bit more info so I can try to debug this? Is it an issue in all modes, or a particular one? And can you upload logs here:
