Some files have a designated place inside themselves (jpg for instance) to
hold tags. When you add tags the file is actually changed and the tags added
to the file. Other files do not have places inside themselves for the tags,
in that case the tags are associated with the files in the photo gallery's
data base (the pd4 files). To find your pd4 file location,
left click start orb, type pd4 in the search box, in short order you should
see 'pictures.pd4' in the list right click then properties to find out where
it is located or select 'open file location' to simply go to it.
What I would do.
Left click on the troublesome tag. Examine the pictures that that tag brings
up (right click, properties). Are they located in non-standard areas, are
they write protected? Are they something other than jpg? Who owns the
picture (security tab). You need to discover what is different between
pictures that you can remove the tag from and ones you cannot remove the
tag. Sorry I cannot be of more help.
