Adobeâ€™s Lightroom is a must have program for any photographer â€“ or traveler who takes photos for that matter. And if your camera doesnâ€™t have a built in Geo Tracker â€“ then you can use your smart phone to record the tracklog and have Lightroom sync the photos.
I used GPS Essentials (free) with my Galaxy II to record my trip today and took 84 images with the Canon D7 (no GPS) around Pattaya Beach and Walking Street â€“ loaded the images and tracklog into Lightroom and above is the results â€“ in blue is my route and each of the photos have been set to the correct location automatically. â€“ and very accurate too.
The route, shown in blue, also shows the car route I used to get there and back ( no images tagged). I store the tracklog in the same directory as the original images, so I now have a permanent record of the trip.
Here is a ******* SLIDESHOW ******* of some of the images taken during the walk.
I am going to plan more excursions and will use this system to record each trip â€“ and put a copy, like above, in each slideshow –
GREAT â€“ try it, for the traveler itâ€™s invaluable.
