Video Tutorial: Adding GPS Data Using Lightroom

If you want to save GPS data to your images but don’t have a GPS device or camera that will automatically embed GPS data to your images, then why not use your smartphone? By creating at least one photograph with your smartphone (assuming it embeds the GPS data, just like most iPhones and Android devices will do), you will be able to take that location information and sync it to your other images with Lightroom. Watch the video to find out how!

    I use normally the MAP option in Lightroom 4. In some times, I copy the GPS from Google Maps and paste in the GPS field in LR. But, it’s great idea take a photo with iPhone and copy the gps. Great!
