If your camera doesn’t have GPS built-in, you will LOVE this Lightroom tip!

Hi gang, and happy Friday. Adobe’s own Terry White was on “The Grid” as my guest this week (we were talking about travel photography), and he showed this tip about how to instantly tag all your photos with GPS data for people whose camera doesn’t have built-in GPS tagging (or any other kind of 3rd party GPS add-on). So simple, very clever; super easy. Check out the video below:

A big thanks to Terry for sharing that tip with you guys here on Lightroom Killer Tips. 🙂 If you’d like to watch the actual episode of The Grid with Terry (with our travel photography topic), click here.

Hope you all have a great weekend, and we’ll catch ya back here next week.

P.S. Today we’re releasing my new class: “Scott Kelby’s ‘Seven Point System’ for Lightroom” — an expanded version of what I taught on my live “Shoot Like a Pro Tour” and if you’re a KelbyOne member, you can go watch it right now (or, at the very least, I hope you’ll check it out this weekend). If you’re not a KelbyOne member yet, take the 10-day free trial and you can start watching it immediately.

  2. It wasn’t working for me at first until I realised that “remove location info” was checked in the export box

  3. Any tips for importing Video files into Lightroom from my iPhone 7?
    Now, I have to manually adjust the time and add GPS location info into the video files in the Lightroom even the file is already with correct timestamp and GPS info shot with my iPhone 7.

  4. This is definitely a sane tip and it helped me on several occasions.

    For more elaborate (and action free) functionality there are some very decent apps that continuously record your location and later on either tag your photos or output a file that you can use in Lightroom to automatically tag the photos.

    Of course many of the Wi-Fi apps that come with current cameras offer automatic GPS tagging too.

    • Yes. I Installed two different Android geotagging apps (Ultra GPS Log and Geotag Photos Pro) and they both work great. After synchronizing the phone and camera’s time, I simply start the app when I leave to take photos and shoot on my DSLR all day. When I get home (either that day or at the end of a trip), I download the GPS log file from the app to my computer. Then I use this file to apply the coordinates to all of the photos I took on the trip. Works great.
