Lightroom 5 map module and garmin gps

Night photography  from a Bergen photowalk

Night photography  from a Bergen photowalk I did where I tracked my trip with Garmin 60Cx and then geotagged the images afterwards in Lightroom 5

Having the ability to geotag your images is nice. It helps you remember as well as helps people find your images. Geotagging is becoming one of the most important information you can have in the metadata of your images as most of the search engines and social media sites now give you the ability to upload those information.

Its my experience that geotagged images get more views than images with out geotag, bot on facebook and flickr but not least with in search engines like google. 

There is no excuse any more not to geotag your images. There are plentitude of geotagging apps out there for your iPhone and androids but you can as I show in this video also use your good old tracking devise. One other option is of course to hook up a gps like the Canon GPS Receiver GP-E2 straight to your camera and get those information directly into the exif data.

Like always with Adobe software there are many ways to work in each module of Lightroom. In this video podcast I show you a simple way of using Garmin GPSMAP 60Cx Handheld GPS Navigator gps device to track your trip and in the end geotag your images. I walk you through exporting the track from Garmin base camp app and then import the tracks into Lightroom 5 and add the geotag informations into the metadata of your images.Having the ability to geotag your images is nice.
