How do I select pictures?

There are two ways to select picture files or folders:

  1. The “Process entire folder” button is particularly useful if, after previewing pictures, you decide to have Latipics geotag the entire folder.

  2. Note: Latipics 1.x only allows for selecting one file/folder at a time. Also, it will not recursively process folders within folders. If needs be, we suggest you create one folder with copies of all the pictures you want geotagged, then copy the pictures back to their original location after they have been processed.

  1. Drop a folder/picture in the “Drop Zone”:

You can now specify an acceptable range of time before and after the picture’s timestamp to query Latitude. The closest match will be used. In the previous versions, the default of 30 minutes before the picture was used.
