Description

Hi,

it would be great if there was an option to manually trigger an update of the metadata by re-reading the Exif data from the image.
At the moment DT reads Exif only once on import and ignores any changes to the Exif data after that.
I run into this quite frequently, for example after making external changes to exif data using geotag, exiftool etc.

Currently, my solution is to delete the respective images from DT, and then re-importing them with the module settings being restored from the xmp file.

I found one similar ticket (Bug #10680), which however focuses on a somewhat different issue, i.e. at tracking updates in the exif reader and then triggering an update.
My feature request here is simply to offer a manually triggered update without a need to track changes.

What do you think?
