Allow geotagging ("edit geography") of multiple photos on one screen
At the moment I can only geotag photos one at a time; I have to open each picture first, then select the 'edit geography' link. I would like to be able to geotag multiple photos on one screen, as in the 'edit caption / keyword' feature for muliple images. Even better would be if I could just copy and paste coordinates for multiple images from an Excel spreadsheet. Geotagging images is my most time consuming operation in smugmug at present!
Sometimes I have several pics taken in one place that I need to go into each one individually to edit the geography... it'd be great to pic the place on the map it was taken and then to select multiple pics at once as being taken there... will be a real time saver!!
I would love if you could find a way to allow geotaging of multiple images or entire gallery's!
add Edit geography on tools-Manyphoto-More
All is in the title...:) it will be faster and better!
If you can add a feature to select multiple photos and assign location in one screen, it will be great. Currently only one photo can be edited for geo tags. Mostly, we take photos at one location and it really dosent matter if they are 100meters apart. Allow user to select multiple photos and pin the location on map.
Yahoo has this wonderful feature where you can select multiple photos and just drag them to one location. I can create a design and send you.
Editing at the image level is agonizing - and deters me from using the feature - the ability to 'tag' images in bulk would make the feature more user friendly - imho
The Issue of bulk geotag has been here and I understand that there are concerns. Could you add a butto to set a default for a gallery, or at minimum add a button on the uploads page so the geotag data would be applied to all in that upload batch
Provide a way to geotagg many photos at once, like on Flickr. Of course it's better to geotagg them before upload but if you've already uploaded thousands of photos it would be nice to be able to select a bunch of photos and then place them on a map.
Also write the new location metadata to the JPEG-files if they're downloaded later.
Just for clarification, this request can be interpreted in 2 ways:
1) Let me tag multiple photos with the SAME location (currently possible).
2) Let me tag multiple photos with DIFFERENT locations.
In the case of #1, that can be done today with the "Edit Location" tool in the organizer.
In the case of #2, I assume you want to be able to open a photo, set it's location, click "next photo", set that one's location, etc, without having to close the tool, go to the next photo, re-open the tool, repeat.
Which one is this request asking for?

There are dozens of good geotagging solutions available out there (a really good one is Robogeo), so why re-invent the wheel. You can easily geotag photos and imbed the information in the file header or sidecar file BEFORE uploading them. That way the uploaded file carries the location info and will automatically place itself correctly on the map. Another reason to do this is that the maps (Mapquest) in Smugmug are so bad that you won't be able to geotag your photo very precisely in Smugmug anyway....
This is exactly what I'm looking for. Looks like no one has looked into this. How many votes does it take for a feature to get implemented?

It's true that it can now all be done in Lightroom 4 or 5 - the upload to SmugMug works well for me too. Please ignore my earlier request. ImageSouthEast.

this is easily done in Lightroom

Yes, please add some form of bulk geotagging. The one at a time really does not work in my work flow.
Please add this feature! The fact that it's not currently possible means that I will not be signing up for SmugMug after my free trial ends.

I'd also like to be able to edit the existing tag on an image, rather than having to start the whole tagging process from the start. The 'Edit Geography' option should show where an existing tag is and allow you to move it to a correct place, rather than finding where it has to go right from the start.
More than 2 years old request... :(
I know I've already commented on this thread (15 months ago) to promote my GeoLogTag app, but I just want to mention that since a couple of weeks there is also an iPad version available. The app has native support for geotagging SmugMug photos.
I really don't want to spam this thread, but I'm convinced that GeoLogTag is worth looking at if you already have an iPhone and/or iPad.

I would love to have this feature as well. Either to geotag an entire gallery or by multiple photos! Please!
i need it soon
New LR4 may solve this for many of us, if the information is supported on import.

+3 for geotagging multiple photos and libraries. Geotagging one-by-one is taking an age on a slow internet connection!
Ugo Riboni commented
+3 for geotagging of entire libraries or multiple photos at last

I agree with Danilo but would like to add a map interface so that you can pinpoint a photo location on the map and have it transferred into the photo EXIF GPS data fields.
With 10K + photos already uploaded, it would be great to simply be able to geotag a gallery at once
I'm the developer of the iPhone geotagging app GeoLogTag. Yesterday I submitted a new version to Apple that includes native SmugMug geotagging support.
In short, GeoLogTag tracks your location while you take photos (with any digital camera). Once the photos are uploaded to SmugMug, GeoLogTag geotags the photos.
If everything goes well, the version with SmugMug support will be available in the App Store by the end of next week.
"Mapping an entire gallery would be useful, too."
ditto!...it would be very useful..and looking for the way to do that is how I ended up on this thread.
I think this would be better accomplished by doing the metadata tagging and geocoding offline (e.g., Photo Mechanic, Lightroom, etc.), then sync that metadata with SM.
