Killer Lightroom Tip If You Don’t Have GPS in Your Camera, But Want Your Images Added To Lightroom’s Map

And, of course, it features Lightroom guru (and Adobe evangelist), Mr. Terry White. Check it out:

How cool is that!!!! Thanks, Terry!

This next video was put together by Adobe…

…and it’s about the woman you see below, who used to study architecture and fell in love with photography along the way. There is no sales pitch or anything like that (besides just the words Lightroom and Photoshop briefly in the opening and at the end, but that’s it), but man – this is just so well done from beginning to end. It’s only a minute or so, but I think you’ll really enjoy it.

Next week, the HUGE Lightroom online training event kicks off

That’s right – next week is the Photoshop World Conference 2022, and just a TON of Lightroom classes, and so much more. Check out the short 1-min trailer below first, and then we’ll chat after. Check it out:

It’s three days, three tracks, the top instructors in our industry and you can watch any session in any of the tracks, and we archive the entire conference for a full year so you can catch any sessions you missed or re-watch any sessions you want to see again. Tickets and more info are right here. Don’t miss out – it’s going to be incredible!

Have a wonderful weekend, everybody. Stay safe and we’ll catch you next week. 🙂

    Good if you are shooting in a single location, or remember to take phone photos every time you change locations. Personally, I use an app called MyTracks. You activate it at the start of your shoot and it logs your location in intervals that you can select. It created a GPX file which can then be imported into Lightroom to tag photo locations based on time stamps.

    I use it for street and journalistic photography, where I might take 100 shots in a dozen different locations and it’s extremely accurate and easy to use.

    Good old drag-and-drop! SO much simpler than what I had been doing, which was copying and pasting the GPS coordinates from a geotagged photo. Thanks, Terry and Scott!

    This tip is good in a pinch, but….

    If you know you’re going to do this, it’s much easier to run a GPS tracker (like AllTrails, but there are others) and use the GPX file to just tag everything. Much easier than making sure you remember to take a phone photo at each location you take SLR photos.

    GPS LOG files from Canon cameras, at least, can be converted to GPX as well.

      Hi, Eric. You are absolutely right, it is faster and easier if you already own a GPS tracker. If you don’t then you have to buy one, and remember to use it, and all that. This solution is mostly for folks who have already taken the photos and didn’t have either built-in GPS or a tracker. 🙂
