Essentially what I want to do is to embed the geo-coordinates into an
image so that when the picture is posted online (i.e. Facebook, website,
etc.) that someone can click on the image and it will take them to a
website like Google Maps (or whatever) and take them to that spot.
I will use a scenario. Every year around this time the wife and I go to
Radium for a weekend away. We alwats take out camera with us and grab a
few snaps on the scenery or if we ha[[en to go on a hike or something.
This will be our first real trip with the eeepc and so would like to at
then end of the day, geo-tag the photos and upload them to say Facebook.
If the geo-tagging works, people should be able to view the pictures and
be able to click on them and visit Google Earth/Maps or whatever and see
the exact spot where we took the picture. It would also be cool to be
able to watermark the picture with those geo-coordinates as well.
I do like xnview but the only location information that I can place is
there is the city & province and that is about it.
From the look of it though it looks like ImageMagick might be the
better way to go. The ideal is that I can find a good cross-platform
tool that will do what I woud like it to do. I would like to try and
avoid having 10 programs installed all basically doing the same
thing...but whatever works right?
I am familiar with Gimp and use it quite regularly and xnview is a great
tool for bringing things up quickly and working with them.
<<sigh>>...the search continues.
