Add geotags to pictures or video using GPS coordinates or city and state info in Windows Live Photo Gallery 2011 and identify places where they have been taken.
Many digital cameras and most smart phones have GPS capabilities built right in to them and add GPS data to pictures when they are taken. Windows Photo Gallery 2011 gathers this GPS data and allows you to organize and map your pictures and video based on geotags.
If the picture or video doesn’t have a geotag yet you can manually add one by clicking on Add geotag under Geotag in Windows Live Photo Gallery’s right column and typing the city and state of where the picture was taken.
Did you know? Windows Live Photo Gallery 2011 uses Bing maps to geotag your pictures or video. If your computer doesn’t have an Internet connection adding a geotag won’t work as designed.
You can delete a geotag by clicking the X when you point at the geotag under Geotag in Windows Live Photo Gallery 2011’s right column.
You can see the exact location a picture or video was taken on a map by right-clicking the location under Geotag in the right-column of Windows Live Photo Gallery 2011 and then select Map it.
