Geotag your photos with Picasa 3.5

November 1, 2009

Maps and photos.  I can’t think of two things more near and dear to a traveler’s heart than maps and photos.  Being able to combine the two is the ultimate.  But, being able to do it *easily*??  Well, that’s not possible is it?

It is now.

Picasa (the free-from-Google digital photo management program) released a new version last month.  And one of the major improvements is in the ‘Geotagging’ feature.  Instead of requiring that you use Google Earth, they have embedded a full Google Maps ‘Places’ pane right into Picasa.  Placing a photo at a place on the map is as simple as clicking on the photo and clicking at the place on the map.  I show you how to do this in the video below.

Note: You can make it play in full-screen by clicking the icon in the lower right of the playback window that looks like an X .

If you’re new to Picasa, or want to learn more, I’m excited to announce that I’ll be co-hosting a webinar (seminar delivered over the web) with Google on November 13.  Register for the free Picasa Webinar here.

    Your article is mixed with another in rv.bolg. How can I save just your piece. I could save th whole thing and just rename it but that seems cumbersome. I just know that you have a slick way to separate the wanted from the unwanted!

  3. Big T – I think what you’re referring to is the fact that, if you click on the title of the article: Geotagging your Photos with Picasa 3,5 – you will then be on a page with this article and nothing but this article.
