    Drg & drop to a saved location does not work. Is there a setting which needs to be turned on?

    What happens? Do you get an error message? If so, please quote it exactly. Also, what operating system?

    No error message

    Using windows 7 64bit

    Can do it if I put a tick alongside the location

    You still haven't told us what happens ... what do you do and what do you see in LR when you try this?

    Nothing Happens - I create a saved location, the dotted white circle appears but when I try to drag images into the circle nothing happens

    I don't think you're supposed to be able to drag photos into saved locations.

    The Video tutorial "mapping your photos in LR4" shows this option, also the following text is in the help file:-

    To add photos to the location, do one of the following:

            Drag one or more photos from the Filmstrip into the white circle in the map.

    Try highlighting the photos you want to geotag, then control-click on the desired spot on the map

    I've tried this (also Shift/click & Alt/click) and still nothing happens.

     

    I am able to add images by highlighting them and ticking the box that appears alongside the relevent preset under "saved locations"

     

    I doesn't explain why I can't drag & drop but I can achieve my objective.

     

    Thanks to all for your help

    Obviously we all work in slightly different ways, but I'm not really understanding why you are trying to geotag by trying to drag into the circle of a saved location. If the circle isn't actually highlighted, and you drag an image to the correct coordinates on the map, the image WILL be added to the saved location if the coordinates fall within the defined area for the location. So why does it matter if the saved location is showing or not, surely it's more important to drag to the correct coordinates?

     

    If you add geotag information by clicking on the box to the left of the saved location name, note that the actual coordinates added will be those for the exact centre of the saved location.....which could easily mean the GPS data you are adding is way off.

    I have a 5D Mark III - I bought the GPS module for it and for some reason, when I export my files to different formats, Lightroom 4 strips out the GPS data. What gives?

     

    Why won't it keep the GPS data on the exported file?

    Michael,

     

    Can you see the GPS data in LR? Make sure you don't have "Remove Location Info" checked in the export dialog.

    I have created GPX files on my phone, loaded them into the map module and selected the corresponding photos. When I select "Auto-tag selected photos" from the pop-up menu where I loaded the track I get an error saying "No Matching Photos" I have checked the track data and the times of the photos and the track match - the track runs from 12:32 to 4:37 on 9-13-2012 and the photos were all taken within this time frame. Any ideas what might be going wrong?

    Were the photos taken in the same time zone as your computer is running in?

    No, I'm in the Eastern time zone and the photos were taken in California. The times in the track match those of the photos. Do I still need to account for the time zone?

    Times in the tracklog are recorded in UTC by definition of the GPX format. These values are translated into local time by LR, using the timezone settings your computer is running in.

     

    In turn, those calculated values are compared to the capture times of the photos, which are local time by definition.

     

    There are two solutions to this problem:

    1. Specify a timezone offset for your track of -3hrs
      (which only works if there were no asynchronous DST changes during the tracklog timeframe)
    2. Set your computer to PDT temporarily when tagging the photos.

    When I try to specify an offset nothing happens - I click the menu item (I tried both the right-click menu and the "Map - Tracklog" menu) but nothing happens. I assume a dialog box should pop up. I also tried to change the time zone on my computer but I still get the "No Matching photos" error. It does, however, start an "operation" in the upper left corner of the application. It says "Auto-tag photos using Tracklog 1 photo" but it has been processing for about 4 minutes and does not appear to be doing anything.

    Would you mind uploading your tracklog to somewhere so we can have a look at it? I assume you DID load the tracklog before trying the offset.

    Yes - I loaded the track - I tried threee different ones actually. the track is here:

    I've had a look at your tracklog and noticed that timestamps in your gpx file contain a timezone indication (-04:00). I'm not sure whether this is legitimate for trackpoints, but this seems to be the reason LR does not recognize the tracklog as a valid tracklog.

     

    I've removed the timezone inidications on the trackpoints and loaded the tracklog successfully into LR. You can download the updated version from here:

    https://www.yousendit.com/download/TEhYTmZUb0JnYU5vSWNUQw

     

    Try and see if you can now play with the time offset dialog.

     

    So there are two issues here:

    1) Why does LR not successfully load the tracklog, but not issue an error message (bug)

    2) Is the DateTime format containing a timezone legitimate for a trackpoint DateTime, and if so, why does LR not handle it (Google Earth seems to handle it correctly).

     

    I would report both issues (including the original and the updated sample tracklog) on the official bug reports forum.

    This did fix the problem - I was able to load the track AND change the time offset. Editing the other tracks in a similar manner allowed those to work as well. Thanks! One odd thing is that the offset required was +4 hours, which seems a little odd. I will report the issue.

    Thanks again

    Reverse geocoding is great. But I can't figure out when it happens. I find reverse geocodes in files imported since LR4, but not in most files imported earlier. However, at least one file from early 2011 is properly reverse geocoded.

     

    So my question is: does reverse geocoding only happen at import? More important, is there a way to force reverse geocoding for already imported files that are not reverse geocoded already?

     

    Thanks

    It appears that ONLY the photos within the current selected directory in the Library appear in the Map. Qestions:

    1.-  Is there anyway to change the directory without having to switch modules.

    2.- Can I select MORE than one Directory at the time.

    You can choose from favorites or recent sources in the breadcrumb bar.

     

    2.- Can I select MORE than one Directory at the time.

    Yes (Ctrl-click).

    It would be great to have the folders available within the Map module, but at least now I can select multiple directories and see all photos in the map. THANKS! that really helped!

    Hi, for all my pictures for the last 5 year I have coded them in the meta data with city location and country. Is there a way I can use these to show all my pictures in the map view?  Or to convert the country / city meta data to GPS co-ordinates?

    I have 1000 images (RAW&JPG) from different cameras, and about 20 GPX files covering most (but not all) of these images.

     

    How can I apply all of the GPX files to all of the images (having no GPX data)? I was only able to select single GPX files.

     

    How can I prevent images to be  tagged by a GPX date far away from the image date (called "fuzzy" in other tools)?

     

    How can I display multiple tracks in a map?

    You can only display multiple tracks from a single gpx file. Use Track

    button on the toolbar.

    No - I'm guessing there are some legal reasons for that (Google has the copyright for the maps).
