Geotagging on the N78 - works but how to access the info on a computer?

Using the show location option I can get an instant map of where any pic was taken on my n78. Cool. But using my fav album software (Adobe Photoshop Album) after uploading the pics to a PC, there seems to be no geo info in the image properties. How can I utilize the geo info that I assume stays with the jpg file on a computer?

Hi buglawton,

I am not sure if this could help you... But you can install an application called Nokia Photos, through which you can organise your photos by date wise, tag wise location etc., Before installing this you can search in google, other and just if and only if you are convinced, then you can install this on your pc,

Thanks for that. Installed , my first attempt resulted in the program locking up as soon as I attempted to import images or go to map tab. Uninstalled it. Then updated Nokia PC Suite to very latest version and reinstalled. OVI works now (can indeed see a zoomable map showing where the pics were taken) but is fatally buggy: If you launch a slide show from Nokia Photos then try to end it via the 'esc' key or the 'exit' button, get error "Access is Denied" and have to kill the Nokia Photos process. Plus, absolutely no way of adjusting the slide show technique, only the speed (it does the auto panning thing, not what I really want).

Ultimately it would be so nice to be able to use, say, Picasa to view the pics and Google Maps (online, not having to install the Google maps monster app) to see the locations. Oh well, one day...

Flickr supports plotting geotagged photos on a map.

It looks like Flikr is an entirely online application working with uploaded images, ideally I'm looking for a desktop application. Perhaps Nokia Photos will improve, I'll watch this space.


access, geotagging, info, n78, works
