    When I custom a picture and export it to a other map it still the original and not the custom one?

    If I understand your question correctly, the ORF files does not change, but the thumbnail preview of the ORF file changes to reflect the edits you made on the file. You can open the ORF and make more changes, such as removing a crop, then export it again (as a TIF or JPG file).

    When I made a change in ORF and export it, the original picture remains in the other map and not the custom one, it is a jpg without the changes.

    I don't know what "maps" you mean.

    Sorry for my bad English, a map with a name "persons" and a other is "mother" , so I export a picture from map mother to map persons.

    Let me see if I understand.

    You have an ORF. You then make edits to it in Viewer 3. You then use the Export image function to create a new JPG. But your JPG does not have the edits?

    Stop using Viewer for anything. Move on to one of the many other post processing tools: Lightroom, Capture 1 Pro, Affinity, Photo Mechanic, Photo RAW, Luminar.....even Photos if on a Mac.

    When exporting from Olympus Viewer 3 (Windows version) there are options for file name and destination, including "Remember Destination Folder". If you are exporting multiple images at once, there is also an option for renaming rules. Is there a chance that you are saving the modified JPEGs under a different (modified) name or in a different (remembered) folder? Or that the old JPEG is write-protected so you cannot modify it?
