    Export Person tags from Windows 10 Photos app


    I put a few hours of work into this, hopefully its helpful to others. I wanted to be able to create a query against the Photos database to output the People it identified through face recognition and the names I assigned to those recognition groups. I could then use this as input to a script to put those names as Tags in the actual pics and video filesstill working on this. I used DB Browser to look at a copy of the MediaDb.v1.sqlite databaseI would recommend not using the live database and after some hours of trial and error, came up with the below query which will output the folder

    Windows 10 Photos App - Export tags or edit tags

    Hi LBO,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you want to export the tagging information from the Photos app so that information can be stores in the metadata of the file. I would like to inform that the export function is currently unavailable.



    However, this seems to be a valid suggestion, I would suggest you to provide your valuable feedback and ideas in our
    Feedback Hub, where our developers
    can look into the requests and constantly improve the features of Windows.



    Regards,

  3. Windows 10 Photos App - Export tags or edit tags

    Dear,

    In the file explorer I tagged all my pictures with references to people names, places, special occasions, etc...

    It's a huge work, especially for the faces, but it's the only way to find after many years later pictures.

    As the info is stored in the file you can easily port it to any other storage location and share it between platforms.

    With the former Windows Live Photo Gallery tool it was a relief, because you could easily tag pictures and you could even autodetect people with facial recognition and then tag them accordingly.

    With the new W10 photos app, the AI function works well, but the tagging function stores the information in a database, which is useless. Also the option to add other tags is completely gone. Is there a feature to convert/export this information to file
    labels/tags/listing? So the information can be stored in the file as metadata and remains futur proof.

    Thanks

    LBO
