Auto-Import Category Tags only from Files in Library

Post by Ihaveaproblem » Thu Mar 26, 2020 10:24 am


I have a suggestion for a feature: An Option to auto-import existing category tags from files ONLY when the files are within own library folder and its sub folders.

Problem: When browsing random folders of images received from various foreign sources, friends etc, this sometimes automatically imports a bunch of category tags that "pollute" and "clutter" my own collection/system of category tags. Each time this happens, I must carefully clean up the mess in my tags, taking a lot of caution not to delete one of my own tags.

I extensively use the tagging feature to manage photo albums and I am not interested in any tags/metadata attached to received photos that I browse using this great Software XNViewMP.

Merci beaucoup!
