How To GeoTag Your Photos Or Edit GeoData In Images

Did you take a photo and would like to Geotag it so that you can remember the exact place the photo was taken? Or maybe you took a photo with a geotag enabled device and would like to re-check where every photo was taken? Since geotagging is relatively a new phenomenon, Windows and Linux OS do not have a build-in feature to geotag the photos.

GeoSetter is a free tool for Windows that lets you add geotag to the photos and also lets you edit geodata in the image files. You can add geotag to the photos by entering the coordinates or by browsing via the build-in Google Maps(requires good internet connection). Geotagging basically helps a person know where exactly the photo was taken.

You can easily edit the geodata of the images or other details. Once you save the geodata and sent the photo to your friend or co-worker, they can easily see where the photo was taken. The image along with the geotagged location can be uploaded to Google Earth which makes it more exciting, useful, and fun.

Instead of following the difficult techniques of geotagging the photos, it has now become a breeze. You can also synchronize the photos with track files, such as NMEA, GPX, PLT, Sony LOG and others. Apart from it, you can also sync with an already geotagged buddy images, for e.g syncing between RAW images and their corresponding JPEG images. It woks on both Windows XP and Vista. Enjoy!


  1. Geo taging is a major security issue it lets you and everyone in the world no where the picture was taken. I cant speak for others but its one thing for me to tell people where I take a picture its another for them to just be able to look it up online by typing in the tag . The ends up telling anyone that sees the pictures not only where I go but when and thats just me… what happens if I take a pic of my friends kids.. I dont need some random looser knowing where they live or where they go to school..

    • Dude, no one gives a toss about where you take a photo. Who could be bothered finding the location of your friends kids school when there are schools full of children everywhere. They’d have to be a real “looser” (high school graduate would probably say loser) to be interested in your stuff. Heck you probably only just figured out that photos don’t actually capture your soul. Go back to the dark ages where you grew up.

  2. I really like the idea of geotagging. For a couple of months now, I’m geotagging all the photos I take.
    I first considered buying a new GPS-enabled camera, but since my Sony DSLR is only 1 year old and (decent) GPS-enabled cameras are expensive, I started looking for an alternative. It turned out that I had it in my pocket the whole time: my iPhone!!!
    I bought the iPhone app GeoLogTag (http://www.galarina.eu/GeoLogTag/Home.html) for $5. It works pretty good, I already geotagged a few hundreds of photos flawlessly.
