Description

Geotagging shouldn't force the user to "apply time offset to selected images" with this changing the datetime of the pictures. The goetagging plugin should calculate with the time offset itself, without changing the datetime of the pictures.

So you want to keep the incorrect time? Why?

Because the incorrect time is the correct time for me. :D
My camera (Sony A200) doesn't know time zones so like this I always set it to local time, but the geologger that I use (Open GPS Tracker for Android) saves the time from the satellite which is GMT time. So like this I end up applying -2 hrs on the images to do the geotagging then applying +2 hrs to get back to the correct local time.

That's why you have to set the time zone in the GPX import window to what your photos use.
