    LR does not update metadata after edit outside of LR

    fabians82850722 Level 1



      I use geosetter to geotag my images. Usually I do that before importing the images into LR. But recently I had to make some changes to the pictures with Geosetter (which uses Exiftool) later on. Geo information was added to some pictures.


      Problem: LR just ignores these changes, even though I synchronized the folder ("Scan for metadata updates" was checked). In particular, some pictures still do not show any location in LR, even though the location was added outside of LR.


      How do I make LR to consider the changes made? I do not want to delete and reimport because I will loose keywording and edits.


      Thanks for your help.
