Hi,

I'm using ArcPro Standard 2.7.0 on Win64 (not that I think it matters in this case.)

I have a layer of geotagged photos as points. I've taken more photos that I want to add to the same layer. When I use the tool "Geotagged Photos to Points" with the current layer name it doesn't add the new photos, it overwrites the whole layer. Is there a way to add more photos to these layers? I can put the photos in subfolders and add the whole subfolder each time but this is kind of clunky and I'm worried it will cause problems later when I update symbology, attribute table etc.

I've got no idea about this tool if I'm honest, but can you just create a new feature class using that tool then merge or append (appreciate attachments and stuff are not necessarily simple beasts, but just throwing it out there)?

Yup, that worked! Symbology and extra attributes handled no problem. Thanks!
