    Writing EXIF description in LR ?

    Hello, Yep. I'm currently using LensTagger as a LR plugin for my workflow when importing analog scans. Indeed, I saw when using the plugin that a lot of LensTagger fields get written in the UserComment field. With this, I would say LensTagger real added value seems it's writting stuff in the...

    Library module Edit EXIF camera model ?
