I recently came back from holidays and have a set of photos and tracklogs that I would like to match. I have done this procedure once before, with a different set of photos and tracklogs and was able to add the location data to the photos, but somehow now I can't get it to work...
I have put a photo and tracklog in a dropbox link:
I have Lightroom 6.9 (standalone version). The tracklog and photo are from 11-03-2017.
When I load the tracklog in Lightroom, I see that the start and end of the track are 09.00-11.32 (opening LR in CET timezone). When I look at the datetime of my photo in LR it says 11-03-2017 10:23:37. Based on this I would say it should find a match, but when I select "Select photos in tracklog", LR shows the response that 0 have been selected.
I have also played with the timezone difference settings, but to no success.
I must be missing something here. Any help appreciated.
Looks like your Camera was still set to your local time at home when you took the photos on your trip.
I needed to set Tracklog offset time to +6 hours in order to get a match.
With map module open choose from the menu
MAP > Tracklog > Time Zone Offset
Apparently I forgot how LR works. I was assuming that "Select Photos on Tracklog" would select the photos that match the tracklog, before actually tagging them, like a preview. But that function seems to select the photos only after they have actually been tagged.
The offset of +6 hours was indeed what needed to be done. Camera was still on local time at home.
