I'm having issues changing metadata for photos from 1 camera.

When I load photos from my camera (Nikon D7000) I can use the details bar at the bottom of windows explorer to add tags, change star rating and adjust dates if I want.

With my wife's camera a Sony Cybershot DSC-WX200 all these details appear to be locked, I can't add tags or rate photos. Does anyone know how this could be unlocked.

I'd prefer to do it in windows explorer and not use some other software at this moment.


  • What format(s) are the Nikon and Sony images? JPG, raw..?
