    LR4: what makes LR consider a file being changed externally?

    Guenther Blumenstock

      I wonder how I can make LR4 recognize that a file has been changed externally (e.g. by GeoSetter). I am talking about hundreds of old images already imported into LR, that I want to geotag retroactively.

       

      LR wouldn't show the 'Metadata changed externally icon" after I added and saved GPS data with GeoSetter. I need to select all relevant thumbnails in LR4 and do a Metadata->Read from File .

       

      I tried to change the file date, add some additional data such as keywords during geosetting but with no success.

       

      Which attributes are taken into account by LR to consider a file's metadata being changed externally?

       

      Any hints and suggestions are highly appreciated.
