Join us on October 20th for George Jardine’s presentation – “Everything You Wanted To Know About Using GPS with Lightroom!”
Have you ever looked at your photos after the fact, and wished you knew which photos were taken where? Or wished that you could map them without a lot of effort.
George is an excellent speaker,teacher and photographer. He has given both lectures and tutorials for the Lone Tree Photo Club that have advanced my knowledge of lightroom.
George’s presentation will cover three major points:
- How to apply GPS coordinates to your photos using Lightroom.
- How to use GPS tracklogs with Lightroom.
- More about GPS and your photo timestamps than you thought you’d ever want to know.
Updates from George’s presentation
One thing that I learned from George’s presentation was that accurate time on your camera makes this much easier. George mentioned two web sites that makes this easier.
The website, timeanddate.com is extremely useful for both changing time zones, and seeing the difference between UTC (which your GPS uses,) and your camera.
To find out how far your camera’s clock is off from the correct time, you can photograph, your smart phone displaying the web site, time.is Shoot this at the end of your shooting session. Then once you import your images, you can compare the time in the file, to the photographed time.
