I fear I am missing something obvious….
I’ve watched Will’s videos for setting up synology photos (and Will’s other videos for setting up a synology NAS) and have got current photos syncing nicely from iphone to SynPhotos, yay.
But now I want to export all photos from my Apple photos to SynPhotos and have tried different ways of doing it.
I was hoping that I could just export photos from Apple photos and I would get the:
- date taken
- key words (that translate to SynPhotos Tags)
- people identification.
I’ve tried exporting from Apple photos (to a folder on my desktop) as:
— Export > Export photos
— Export > Export unmodified originals
… then copying/importing to SynPhotos - as an Admin - via:
But I get a mixture of:
- not the ‘date taken’ date but the ‘copied’ date
- no key words/tags
- no description
- it’s hit and miss if I get people identification.
I am only using 4 photos to see how to do it before I embark on importing the 19 Gb library that I have.
Am I expecting too much?
Do I just need to import into SynPhotos then add all the metadata myself? Aaaah…
Any help appreciated.
