I don’t know if this is a “Bug Report” or a “Feature Request”. I would like some way to prevent the uploader from autofilling identifications from keywords associated with each image. See the attached screen captures which show what is happening.
Note that after loading metadata, the uploader has autofilled in a moth family name or an insect order for each observation in the identification box. This necessarily comes from my keywords associated with each image. (For instance, in the first screen capture, these images have my keywords of “Tortricidae”, “Geometridae”, and “Crambidae” (twice) associated with the four moth images.) Prior to uploading, I typically fill in a family name (for Lepidoptera) or an insect order as a keyword for every image in iPhotos to help me sort my 100,000 images there. The uploader is detecting that keyword and placing it (against my desires) as a suggested ID. I understand that this might be useful for observers who use a species name (common or scientific) as a keyword in their local photo program but I don’t. The outcome of the uploader autofilling from my keywords is that I have to make an extra motion for every observation of selecting and deleting the family/order name in the species ID box before I can begin typing in the actual name (which then requires reselecting the box after deleting the autofilled name). I’d rather the species ID box start off blank so that I can just click in it once to either start typing my ID or get an ID suggestion from computer vision.
Is the autofill of a keyword as a suggested ID a purposeful feature of the uploader or is this a bug?
I use iPhotos 9.6.1 (910.42) […and yes I still use iPhotos instead of Photos on my Mac] running Mojave 10.14.5.
