Trying to 'location tag' photos now, had'nt done this before and if you're familiar with where a shot was you've skooshed it (tech term) however i'm spending too long trying to pinpoint on a map (even roughly)

I notice when you go to use the map as a search feature you can enter town etc even places and parks which is great, could you add this search function to the screen used to add a location tag?
Then we could simply add in as an example Chester Zoo, copy coordinates, save, job done!

Hi Alan,

Good question. I have just done a quick test by searching for Chester Zoo and sure enough it located it without any problem. Quite a few photos taken there.

So, yes it appears that it will pick up names of locations.

I've been doing it since it was introduced. Surely that's worth something? Wink

K i've now added location tags to over a dozen pics that were already uploaded and now looking for pics from Oz I can upload just so I can tag it from there Smile

Gotta say, the map feature's been one of my favourites since it was introduced, and I've love to see more of the landscapers being a little less precious about some of their locations. We all know you use maps to find your spots Smile
Actually, I'd like to see some more wild-Lifers doing the same thing.

Most of mine are geo-tagged. But then, I don't think many people will be going to the locations I like to use... Wink

I'll definately have a go at the Exhibitions feature. Never knew it was there so it shows how observant I am Smile

So are most of mine, but seeing how most of mine are in the same area it's beginning to look like the New Forrest - only with red trees! Wink

How about adding a challenge for the tags, Pete?

In response to Pete's encouragement, I've put a few shots together into an exhibition.
A bit of a theme and (hopefully) a bit of a style.
Have a look and let me know what you think, good or bad.

What a lot of words Pete. Whilst on the subject of things to do, can we have a sandpit to play in when we are all bored and if possible can we also have 10 minutes a day where the site goes down so that we get time to go moon at passing motorists? Wink
