Tips, Tricks and Questions
Here are a few highlighted tips, tricks and questions about geotagging, GPSPhotoLinker, and organizing your photos.
Ensure accurate date and times on your photos
Keeping an accurate date and time on your camera is extremely helpful, and also quite simple.
- Always set your camera time to GMT so you never wonder which time zone it was set to or whether you forgot daylight saving time.
- Take a photo of the time on your GPS after a trip, then compare the time stamp to the time in the photo and batch shift the time on your photos to achieve accuracy down to the second.
Read on for a more detailed description of how to ensure accurate times on your photos.
Upload to a mapped web gallery
Once you've geotagged your photos, now you want to share them with your friends and family. Many online web galleries will take advantage of the geotags and automatically place your photos on a map. Read our information for uploading to mapped web galleries like Flickr, Picasa, and Locr.
Working with iPhoto, Aperture, and Lightroom
All three of these applications maintain their own database of photo metadata. This means that any changes GPSPhotoLinker makes to a photo are not instantly recognized by the applications. The simplest solution to geotagging photos is to change your workflow by importing photos into one of the above applications after geotagging with GPSPhotoLinker.
Each program behaves slightly differently, read about specific iPhoto, Aperture, and Lightroom workflows.
