Summary0001010: Allow setting of timezone to UTC
DescriptionGeosetter doesn't allow setting the time zone/photo time to UTC, which causes all sorts of problems because you need to figure out what Geosetter is doing to the time and then try and come up with a correction factor to get it back to UTC. I've just spent about three hours trying to figure out why several hundred photos were tagged with incorrect positions before I realised that setting GMT (WET) was applying a 1-hour DST offset that I need to undo by manually adding a 1-hour correction. Then I had to go through and manually check hundreds of photos to make sure the updated position was now correct.

I've requested this in the past but both the request and my account seem to have vanished. This has also been requested by a number of other submitters, e.g.,, and The change seems relatively trivial, just add another option to the existing combobox, "Use UTC", and don't apply any corrections, DST offsets, or anything else.
