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.
