Hi, I've been adding my images to Lightrooms map but the embedded GPS co-ordinates aren't being used in "Location" in AIM, I still have to manually add them. Has anyone got this to successfully work from Lightroom? I've double checked they are in the exported image files, under "GPS" and Lat, Long, Altitude. Thanks, James
Here is a blog post that should be required reading for every photographer. https://diglloyd.com/blog/2016/20161125_1800-destroying-to-make-the-picture.html It is one of the reasons why I only give an approximate location for my images, and certainly no GPS. An approximate location is enough for any editor client trying to write a caption, without attracting hordes of photographers. The blog post only refers to wilderness, but it also happens in the country and the city as well. Ask any city homeowner or a farmer residing at a good picture location. Trampled crops, gates left open, cattle stampeded, photographers parking in a city private driveway, trespass in backyards, the list goes on. Take nothing but pictures, do not even leave footprints.
I've started to geotag my photos. In my case I don't have a fancy new camera with GPS, but you can use your phone's GPS too. Anybody else doing this? Seems like Alamy offering location that isn't manually entered could be beneficial for photo buyers. Say if a photo buyer was looking for photos of specific neighborhood, building, landmark etc., they could just go to a map and explore photos. Even if the photographer didn't know to keyword with what the buyer was looking for. This is possible on Flickr for example and I use Flickr maps to explore and research an area before visiting. I also find it helps keywording a lot.
