Join Mikkel Aaland for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with non-geotagged photos, part of Lightroom 4 New Features Overview.
What do you do if you have an image or images that don't contain GPS data? In this video, I'll show you how to add GPS data manually directly from the Map module. Okay, so this photograph here, I took several years ago in Tasmania before I had a GPS enabled device. So I want to go ahead and type in Tasmania because I need to find that location on the map.
Go ahead and do that, and now I have all of Tasmania. That's a little bit too general for me. I know that this photograph was taken over here on the East Coast. So let me go ahead and zoom in a little bit, and click and drag the map over to the East Coast, to where we were. I can also use the Navigator here, just to kind of move along a little bit more easily all the way to the coast, okay. And I know we were along the coast someplace here, I still using the navigator.
You stay here at Bicheno, so let me go ahead and get that location on the map. And we were up here I think in this park. Here it is, over here Douglas Apsley Park, let me move that in the navigator. So it's somewhere here in the rain forest. Now I don't need to be really perfectly exact, in fact, I can't be because I don't remember exactly where we were. But just to get it in the general vicinity is going to be very useful, so I'm going to click and drag, and release and now you can see the icon appears here. And I have now set the GPS location in the Douglas Apsley National Park. And you can see there's also some location information that's been filled in automatically by Google Maps.
And I can do the same thing now, if I want, with another photograph. So let me come back over to the, to the park, and I'm going to get rid of that. And now I click here, and release. And now I have another photograph tagged to the same location. I could have selected multiple photographs and dragged and dropped them into the location, just as well. All right, so now let's zoom out a little bit. You can see that I have two photographs taken in that location, and they're all Geotagged in the XF Data. So, Lightroom has long had the ability to read GPS data. But now with Lightroom 4, it's easier than ever to add the GPS data, and get all the search and retrieval benefits of location-based tagging. And that's really good news.
