Quick guide to new open dialog on OSX with latest Java

As we have written yesterday, there is bug in latest Java 7 update 9 which prevents OS X users from accessing folders on their computer or memory card. This will be hopefully fixed in next Java version, but we have quickly came with workaround, so users, who have installed latest Java on their computer,  could use Geotag Photos.

This does not apply to Windows users and users, who have not updated Java. For them nothing changes.

When you launch Geotag Photos, click on “Open” as usual and you will see new opening dialog.

Select “Macintosh HD” in the top box and you will see large list of folders. If you want to access files and folders, as you are used to, open “Users” folder and than click on your username.

In case you want to access your memory card or external hard drive,  select “Macintosh HD” in the top box and open “Volumes” folder.

Once you find folder containing photos, you want to geotag, click on “Choose” button. Double-clicking on folder will not select it.

We apologize for this complications and we hope that new Java will be released soon and the old, more comfortable opening dialog will work again and you will get better user experience. If you have any questions, let us know on support@tappytaps.com or in comments bellow.
