I'm debating buying iPhoto for iOS but was wondering if when I add tags if it embeds them to the original file?  If it doesn't I'll pass and keep using Adobe Bridge to tag my photos.

 

I don't know why anyone wouldn't want tags embeded.

 

Thanks!

    I haven't actually checked this to be positive but just about everything else iPhoto for iOS does is only saved on the Edited version of the photo. Nothing is actually done to the original. So I doubt any tags will go onto the original file. Hopefully some others can jump in here and confirm that.

    Why not set up an experiment with a throw away photo to test and see just what, if any, tags are embedded into the original file. Please port back with your results.

    I have Aperture 3 on iMac and MBA.

    then I bought iPhoto for iPad.

    I have imported pix from iPad to iMac

    the GPS tags from iPhoto port over to Aperture 3

    but no custom tags.

     

    (also, individually selected photos from Aperture 3 on the MBA do not keep their tags either on Aperture 3 on the iMAC even if the tags are the same.... I have not tried exporting an entire library (which includes the tagging system from the MBA to the iMAC tho'.)
