Nice batch EXIF editor

I used MetaGear to add locations and edit dates (by offset) for photos taken on my non-iPhone camera. I went through 3k+ photos in a few days. My main feature request is to locate photos by location so I can adjust with more precise location (e.g., Paris => Louvre). This can be via location viewer in the app itself or via an “open in” extension in the photos app.

Keyword changes not what I was hoping

I bought this app mostly to make keyword changes. The good thing is that it does batch keyword changes. But there are two things I wish t did better

1. I wish I could easily swipe between pictures and select from common keywords for each picture. Right now I have to click on about 8 buttons and type in each keyword i want to add.

2. If I had feature number one I wouldn’t necessarily want this feature but I wish I could add a keyword to a batch of photos that have different keywords already. Right now you can only make them ALL the same keyword, you can’t just add a new keyword to all of them.

It functions really well and I will continue to use it for now. Hopefully there is a way to make keywords easier.

Good but can be improved

What I miss is being able to search on meta data. For example finding all pictures within a date range or certain location.

Since I have a lot of old imported pictures in my iCloud I would like to find all pictures that have empty fields in date and/or location to be able to add data to the pictures.

Another way to add that functionality would be to go from apple’s pictures app and be able to multi edit a selection of pictures.

Please add either so I can add metadata to my old imported pictures.
(I have way too many to just scroll and look for them)
