In one of his comments about a photo I took, TenMile asked where's the geotag. I have to admit, at the time I didn't really know what the hell he was talking about. Since then, I've done some googling, and found out a little about it. Wikipedia discusses it here.
When you right click on a photo (using a PC that is -- with a MAC it's different, perhaps you control click, MAC users help me out) it gives you some information: which camera took it, the speed, the ISO and other stuff. When you geotag a photo, it adds the latitude, longitude, elevation and even more information. If you go on vacation, you can create an album online that shows a map of where the photos were taken. Nice.
I've also heard that eventually, ALL cameras will include a GPS that will automatically geotag photos. Right now, even expensive ones don't have that capability.
The good news, is that you can geotag your own photos manually. In my case, I went into Picasa and clicked on geotag. Google earth opened up, I entered the address when I shot the photos, and it added that to the properties (as I mentioned above) that can be seen if you right-click.
Fine, I went into Picasa, and did this. When I right-click on the image in Picasa, it shows this:
If you click to enlarge and look near the bottom, you'll see the coordinates of Tom Lee Park where I shot with Jusdealem a couple of weeks ago.
My problem is that this looks great, but when I import the geotagged photos into my blog, it loses that information! Ouch! Does anyone know why or what do do about it?
In the meantime, on the photo shoot, I didn't have to worry about finding people to photograph. In fact, a young lady saw me taking photos, and ran up and said: "Do me! Take my picture." Even though I'd never seen her before, I did, and you can see her posing below:
