Here I want to highlight a small yet sometimes helpful new feature that we'll encounter in the Library module inside of the Metadata panel. What it is, is a new field, which allows us to enter in direction or if we have a GPS enabled camera, it will include that GPS information. Let's take a look at how this works. When I select the photograph and then navigate to the Library mode and open up the Metadata panel. Next, I'm accessing or viewing that EXIF information and at the bottom of this field, you'll notice there's a new option, which is Direction.
Here you can click into this field and you can add a direction. I know that this photograph was captured as it was facing due south, so I'll go ahead and enter that in. Or, on the other hand, if you're using a camera, which is GPS enabled, as I have here in this folder, like with my iPhone, you notice that it will pickup the direction here. In this case, this photograph was captured as I was facing northeast or if we click on another image here, it will show us the direction is south. You know with some photographs, this extra bit of metadata isn't that helpful.
If you have a landscape that you capture and you really want to go back and look at which way you were facing, well sometimes this direction info can really help out. All right, there you have it, another handy new feature that we have in the Metadata panel; the ability to add direction to our photographs.
