Reading EXIF from JPEG stopped working w/ C# .Net 6

Several months ago I used GroupsDocs MetaData on both Windows and Linux (ARM64) to read some EXIF (gps mostly) from a JPEG picture taken by ANAFI drone. I have the log of a “Passing” UnitTest, etc. But, when I re-visited this functionality with the same picture the (meta.Data.GetRootPackage as iExif) is returning null. The only thing that might different was the switch from .Net 5 to .Net 6 (don’t recall exactly when it happened) … or maybe an upgrade to version of .Net 6. The fileformat says “unknown”, but not sure why. The license is loaded and appears to be valid and un-expired. The image displays fine and has EXIF geotag data via other programs that can read it.

GroupDocs version 21.8


We are investigating this scenario. Your investigation ticket ID is METADATANET-3967.


.NET 6 support will be added in API version 22.8. As the release is available for download, we’ll notify you.

That’s great news, I was afraid it was something I was doing or had changed…
