"LIghtroom4 location"



In iphoto and aperture, I was able to use places, identify a place i.e. "Lincoln Memorial" and assign that to the photo. In the photo metadata it appeared as Lincoln Memorial.

in LIghtroom 4, I can go to maps, put in "Lincoln Memorial" and when I assign that location, it puts in the GPS coordinates rather than the name of the place. I know I can add Lincoln Memorial to my locations, but I would like to get the name in automatically somewherre in the metadata. I s this possible?

thanks in advance

I use Keywords; note you can use subkeywords e.g. location\New York, to isolate them a bit from regular keywords.

You also have a lot of choices in caption, etc., but also the IPTC data has several explicit location related fields.
