Using iPhoto's Places without a GPS-enabled camera

Posted Wednesday, October 07, 2009

You want to use the Places feature in iPhoto '09 to organize your photos by location. You don't have a camera containing GPS, but you do have an iPhone.

My Macworld colleague Rob Griffiths has the answer for you in this tip. In a nutshell: When you go to a new location, snap a photo with your iPhone, then tuck the iPhone away and shoot with your schmancy camera.

When you get home, transfer your iPhone "establishing shots" along with your other shots. Then copy and paste the location data from the iPhone shots to the other shots.
