New version of Geotag Photos desktop application – altitude support & more

We just released new version of Geotag Photos geotagging desktop application. This version was focused mostly on bug fixes, but some new interesting features are there:

  • since iPhone Geotag Photos 2.5 we are storing altitude with each shot. But until now, this information wasn’t added to your photos. Now, altitude is automatically stored to photo Exif information, so that now everybody will know, how hight was that mountain on that beautiful photo, that you’ve climbed 🙂
  • Exiftool plugin is now prefered geotagging engine. If you are using default geotagging engine (that supports .JPGs only), you will see one time message after next run of Geotag Photos desktop application, that will recommend you to install exiftool plugin. Sure it is free. We decide to do this, because Exiftool supports more cameras and also writes GPS coordinates to images better.
  • Improved camera RAW support. Now supports more cameras.

So that happy geotagging!

Yours,
