Subsequent processing of photos
Of course, you can also have photos processed with TagYour.Photos, which are already included in your IMatch databases. You do not have to do anything in IMatch. The software automatically detects the metadata newly determined by TagYour.Photos and immediately makes them available in IMatch. For example, new categories are inserted directly into the category structure without any intervention and are also displayed directly in the corresponding photos.
