How is metadata from images used? Oct 14, 2011 / Updated: Apr 14, 2012
Without metadata (EXIF, IPTC) there is no title that is associated with the imagefile. The normal working of Zenphoto is to use metadata if it exists in the image. It will only use the filename if no other title is found.
Once a title is set, it is not changed unless you invoke a metadata refresh. So note that even if you changed the title or any other metadata based content it will be overridden on a metadata refresh.
With the coming Zenphoto 1.4.2 it will be possible to exclude certain metadata fields from importing.
