Are you filling in City, State, etc. by having LR provide address suggestions based on the GPS field or based on where you place the photo on the map? If so, those address suggestions will appear in grey font (Mac) or italic font (Windows) and don't get saved to the file by Save Metadata To File. See here for more details about this design misfeature and how to work around it: Re: does lightroom cc 6 save location city , state... ? where?
thank you for the response and the link. That was helpful. Yes i did make sure the information was not just the suggestions.
And after reading the link it is interesting that lightroom does not have the future to do so.
Again thank you
Well one more thing. from reading it the plugins do not save to the file the location information or am i miss reading it?
If you use the Gecoding Support plugin to provide address suggestions, they will be added to the location fields and will be saved to the file when you do Metadata > Save To File.
The Any Tag's Commit command will "commit" LR's address suggestions, turning the font from grey or italic to normal. At that point, Metadata > Save To File will save the location fields back to the file.
Again thank you.
So after your post i did it with Any Tag's and still was not able to do a search based on city in file explorer. but then i want to see and put the file exiftool(-k) and the metadata show as been saved to the file.
Beside what you helped me today, which is i am total appreciative of it, file explorer does a bad job searching metadata.
