Hi all

If like me you have a habit of taking lots of photos but are not always disciplined enough to make a note of what or where the shot is try this.

1. Mark a waypoint on your GPS, this should also date stamp your location.

2. When you download your photos, if there are any that you cant remember the location of, make a note of the photo time stamp.

3. Check your waypoint list for the corresponding time stamp to the photo and locate it on your map.

This should be sufficient to identify what the photo was, where it was taken, and allow you to annotate it properly.

Naturally this assumes that your cameras clock has been syncronised with the GPS unit.

Hope this helps.
Regards Colin ....

There is software available that can help with this. It will actually place the GPS co-ordinates into the meta data within the graphics file. I will repost the name of the software when i get home from work as I can't think of it off the top of my head.

Colin,

the name of the software is PhotoStudio

its freeware or shareware, but the Oziphoto tool that Mad Dog mentioned above, i had forgotten about and as it has the ability to use OziExplorer waypoint files, so i would possibly be more beneficial. But PhotoStudio is definately worth a look.

cheers,
Sam.
