Data export should include metadata#523

P

I tried the data export feature, and noticed it only exports the image files. It would be nice if it exports all my data, including the captions and tags, as well as the order of photos. (Comments are debatable, maybe that could be optional).

The filenames are also more difficult to work with because they are just “jpeg” without a real name or file extension. Dates inside the .zip file also seem wrong. (When unzipped, the macOS Finder is showing 1979 dates.)

+1 to Manton’s comment. We definitely need the metadata and not just our photos. Comments would be a nice to have even if they are text-only. Consider a .bar archive, like Micro.blog does.

Following up on this, I checked the archive format again today and it doesn’t appear to have changed. The .bar format would be great. Another option is maybe just a little metadata text file next to each JPEG that includes the date and caption.
