Hi,

As far as I understand ist the auto-suggested location information based on GPS data shown in the Lightroom but actually not added to the image.

P.S.: I am not looking for a workaround such as manually synchronizing metadata between images, etc.

Thank you,


Philip

My question is not about how to apply metadata in bulk but how to automatically apply suggested location metadata by Lightroom to images.

If you want commit (accept) all the suggestions in batch, use the free Commit Locations command of the Any Filter pluginAny Tag plugin.

Oops, brain gas, I mean the Any Tag plugin. (You'd think I'd know my own plugins.)
