Re: Tags in JPGs not updated reliably by Windows Photo Gallery
Did you ever get this resolved? If so, how? I have the same issue. WPG has all the correct tags, ratings, captions, etc, but when I look at the individual files, only SOME of them are accurate.

I like photo gallery very much, tagging is very easy and convenient.
However - at least on my system - the tags are not updated reliably in the
file properties. The tags in photo gallery look perfectly OK, however when I
check the file properties sometimes only a couple of the tags are included,
sometimes none at all. As the photos are on a network drive which is shared
by my family's computers, I would really like to have the correct tags in the
file properties and not only in the Photo Gallery database.
Some background information: the files are all in JPG format, size is 1 to 3
MB. Space for the tag (probably in the file header) is no problem, as adding
a tag manually in the property dialog always works, even for the files where
Windows Photo Gallery failed to update the tags properly. The network drive
is mapped to a drive letter on my system, I am the only one using Vista and
the only one with write access, I am using no other tagging tools.
