Geotagging over a track doesn't work well in LR 4 RC 2.

I have to use a trick to get correct positions: Drop the photos at the end of the track or to the position of the last photo. If you drop your photos to another other place, is not well ordered and capture times are not took in mind.

In LR 4 this worked OK.

I can drop photos on tracks just fine.

Can you post a step-by-step instruction?

Hi Dorin,

- I go to the Map module.
- I open a tracklog: Map->Open tracklog-> ... Directly from my mobile device that I use for GPS.

Track is loaded OK and screen zooms to the correct location.

- I choose my photos to drag over the tracklog. If I take from the last photo I have to place at the end; if I take from the first, I have to place at the beginning. If I do not do in this order, the photos are placed incorrectly. And, no matters if I have done well or not, time is not well used to place the photos: a photo taken at 17:48 can be placed indisctly at 18:30 or 16:30.

Thanks!
