First and foremost, thank you for your amazing work. I have been using RPD for quite some time now and I really appreciate your constant efforts to improve your program!
I searched the forum and to my surprise the topic of automatically GPS tagging pictures on Download did not come up yet.
Would it be feasible to implement a feature to extract GPS positions from a GPX file and automatically write the corresponding coordinates into the EXIF of the downloaded pictures? There should be an option to manually set a time offset between the camera’s time and the GPS time.
The absolute killer-feature would be to extract the time offset automatically from a picture taken of the GPS-devices time (e.g. smartphone clock). But thats just me dreaming
EDIT: I read in a different thread, that you ask for suggestions on how to integrate a feature into the UI.
I was thinking about a separate menu, either an extra window opened from the main menu or a separate “Metadata” tab in the right column.
This menu should contain a checkbox “Geotag from file” an “load GPX file” dialog and a “time offset” text field with a clear description of the input format and the direction (i.e. camera time is greater than (actual) GPS time -> negative offset).
Additionally, as a more realistic idea for the auto-offset detection, there could be either an option “select picture to determine offset” where you can select a picture of some clock, enter the shown time and the offset is automatically calculated from the EXIF data. This could be also an item in a picture’s context menu.
I realize that RPD is not meant for meta data manipulation but I feel that it would be a great addtition to the functionality, if there was a way to change some metadata upon import.
If you are considering this feature request, I would be happy to come up with a more detailed concept.
