Using EOS 6D Mark II.
I've just started using the "Star Rating" on photos in-camera to try to find the good ones and keep track of them.
I was disappointed when I copied files from the SD card onto my external drive for my Mac and found that the Star Ratings from in-camera appear to not be preserved.
Can anyone help me figure out how to save the meta data? For example, if I give it a three-star rating in the camera, it would be super useful to have that rating available for search on my mac when I want to find "three star photos."
I hope that makes sense. Thanks for any help.

I assume it shows up in DPP.
What software are you using on the Mac?

Thanks for assisting... I was not aware of Digital Photo Professional (DPP), so downloaded and installed it. Indeed I can see the star ratings in there, so that was a huge help!
I can Filter for Rating there by setting Filter to "On" and then selecting "Rating" and "***" or "****".
And from there I can use Finder to locate the files I wish to work on in Photoshop or other tools.

Jeffrey's Image Metadata Viewer and darktable are able to read the ratings from my 6D raw files.
