Yep, this post is totally not Mozilla related so I’ll keep it short, but a lot of people in Mozilla do take great photos and maybe they are stuck in my position: No actual GPS device and an compulsion to try to correctly GPS tag their vast collection. I put it off for a long while but finally this weekend wrote a Lightroom plugin to help ease a lot of the manual labour. Go check it out if you’re interested. It’s even on github!

I’m currently using Jeffrey’s GPS-Support plugin: http://regex.info/blog/lightroom-goodies/gps
What are the features in your plugin? Would it still be useful in Lightroom 4 with built-in GPS support?
The page I linked to has more details, I kept it brief here to avoid spamming planet in these crazy times. But it certainly is useful for Lightroom 4, in fact that is the only version it works in. Lightroom 4’s support for editing GPS data in photos is fairly basic, good for the odd photo here and there, bad if you have a lot of photos. The plugin simplifies a lot of the manual labour you’d have to do in Lightroom 4.
Thanks Dave. I missed that link. So it would be helpful for someone who hasn’t tracked the coordinates via an external GPS device. LR4 should be able to update all selected photos given an GPX file.
