Photo Tags - Does it save to file ?

Postby oskargunn » Mon Aug 14, 2017 2:01 pm

Hello,

I am curious to know whether tags for individual photos get saved to the file itself or if PhotoStation keeps a repository of all the created tags?

Good question - not sure I want it touching my photos but if it just added to the EXIF it would make life easier on other programs too

That's a bit naughty really, I do not want ANY program altering my data unless I do it manually :/

If you add a face tag or GPS location, isn't that a manual action? It seems preferential to me that to embed the data in the image file so that it is portable.

I'm not bothered about Face Tags tbh and my GPS Data is written by my camera - I will try it and see what happens - What I have found is when Plex alters my images the originals end up in the recyle bin, so get massive duplicated files and folders
