On initial startup, if I am very quick, I can drag & drop a photo successfully. But ~15 seconds after startup it stops working.
My issue is identical to those posted here. https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/lightroom-8-latest-update-win10-drag-and-drop...
v8.2 seemed to solve the problem for many, but it did not help me.
I have provided sample photos and logs to Adobe staff already and communicated with them, but as the original thread is now marked 'solved' I have created a new one.
I have address book enabled. I am on OS Windows 7 Ultimate.
Drag & Drop sometimes does nothing, but usually it assigns the image a map location... just not the correct one.
Then, I'll again drag it to the correct spot, and that will work about half the time.
Right click "set selected...GPS" is similarly hit or miss.
I've worked with the engineers, spent untold hours of my time helping them. It's pretty clear that the 'Address Lookup' feature is the problem! It gets jammed and the GPS features stop working.
'Address Lookup' cannot be disabled! I don't care about this feature, LET US DISABLE IT so we can just tag our photos with GPS.
It's been almost a year Adobe. Completely unacceptable.
I have been able to solve the issue. Here is my workaround : switching the monitor resolution to 1920x1080.
I have an HP monitor with a native resolution of 1920x1200 that apparently Lightroom GPS module doesn't appreciate.
Switching to Full HD and no GPS issue !
People in this thread, what screen resolution are you using ?
Lightroom 8 latest update, Win10. Drag and drop GPS tagging not working. Right click on map also not working.
Still broken for me. Running Lightroom Classic 8.4.1.
Note: This conversation was created from a reply on: Lightroom Classic 8: Drag and drop GPS tagging not working. Right click on map al....
Issue was solved for me... a few days, after switching my screen to a lower resolution.
However with the current version of Lightroom Classic (9.1) issue is still there.
I cannot use the map module to apply gps info to any picture. When drag and drop an image to the map. Nothing happen.
ADOBE HELP !!!!!!!!
Please help your loyal customers and fix this issue !
I opened a case to the support, waiting for an answer.
