I am running MacOS Mojave 10.14.6 on an iMac. Sometime last July, the Finder started hiding the metadata of downloaded photos. Its behavior varied for a while, but now it seems to have settled down to the following.
I open a pic -- e.g., https://fs3.fotoload.ru/f/0220/1580572066/e367aaa0e2.jpg -- in a browser window and drag it to the Desktop. The Finder's Get Info shows this:
I open a Column-view Finder window for the Desktop, with all the Image Preview Options enabled, and select the pic. I get this:
I drag the pic to a folder, which is also in Column view. The metadata appears briefly (< 1 sec), then changes to this:
Get Info shows only this:
That's also what I get if I drag the pic directly from the browser to the destination folder.
If I open the pic in Preview, it shows the metadata. What can I do to get the Finder to act like it used to and always show the metadata? I have installed no Finder extensions or photo management software.
