Photo-geocoding for Mac OS X

Know where you took that photo

HoudahGeo "pins" photos to locations where they were taken. Professional grade processing. Mac ease of use.

Just like an expensive GPS camera, HoudahGeo can store latitude, longitude and altitude information right within the image file - invisibly with no loss of quality.
HoudahGeo writes EXIF, XMP and IPTC tags.

HoudahGeo projects may be published to EveryTrail or viewed and shared using Google Earth.

Geotagged photos may be saved to Evernote or uploaded to Flickr or locr.

3 Opinions

HoudahGeo 3.0 now has a completely new interface. Actually, it has been rewritten from scratch.

the idea is neat and also I dont dislike the interface....
ok granted it IS NOT pretty but once you use it it is ok

a dealbreaker for me was: that it didnt work with the 3 images I tried :(
(which work fine in any other app, are JPGS and can be read/written to)

Way to expensive and i don't really like the interface either.
