So I figured out a workaround to save my metadata to my photos that were tagged while on the sd card. It seems that going to “update metadata” in the menu, then selecting all and using the move function to move the photos to the internal memory will also save the tags into the photos. Now I can factory reset my phone, but I’m still Jonesing in for sd card support.
I just noticed that writing tags is only available on the paid version. I as of when I started using this app a year or two ago there was no other app that could write standard tags to photos. Regardless if that is still the case, purchasing this app is a no brainer in my opinion for that functionality alone. Also, to convert your current albums to tags you should be able to go into each album, then select all photos, then press the tag button and choose or create a tag.
I think you could use tags and then create albums based on the tags. As long as you save your meta data to disk it will embed the tag in the photos and they should be there forever . it uses standard tags so they are recognized in programs that use them on a PC I’ve personally used Windows Live Photo Viewer and the tags are compatible. the only issue at the moment is if your photos are on an SD card f stop hasn’t yet released the Fix for SD card write access provided with the new lollipop operating system (at least on the htc one m8). It sounds like it’s right around the corner though.
