Hi,

I take a a lot of photos for business and need to tag them to find. Samsung gallery has a great keyword tagging feature. Unfortunate it must store those keywords in a non-standard place because no other Android/windows app can see those tags. I need a way to tag photos that will be searchable on PC and with other apps.
Does anybody know where those tags are stored and if there are other apps that search & tag in the same place?
Or does anyone else have this need and found an app that works for them?

Thanks,

I'll assume your tagging is going to the same place the standard photo info tagged by the phone (or for any photo taken with a digital camera) is located.
Photo info is located in the EXIF (exchangeable image file) attached to the photo. If you to open the photo in the app, look for details; on the app I use it has three dots, click on those three dots, and it opens up a menu; click on details. There will be limited info such as f-stop, speed, iso, white balance; however, more info can be found by an actual EXIF reader.
Go to "Online Exif Viewer" and load a file and it will show you all the info from the EXIF file.

Wow, spend time doing a reply and no answer.
I knew this site was dead, but this is ludicrous.
I'll head out....no need to return.
