I have configured f-spot to write tags in pictures, so Flickr and other apps would detect tags automatically. When I looked in my Pictures folder, I saw lots of text files along with the photos, even though I have never configured it that way. I have since verified that f-spot is set to write metadata tags to image files(see below), but this isn't happening.
How can I make f-spot write metadata tags to the image files?
Just for the record: rotations are not saved to files either.
For what is worth, this tagging problem does not happen with pictures I import from my cell phone.
