I suggest you ...

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!

        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.

        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.

        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!

        +3 for geotagging multiple photos and libraries. Geotagging one-by-one is taking an age on a slow internet connection!

        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.

        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.

        Chris.

        "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.

      • BoatguyBoatguy commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.

      • RedJRedJ commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I really want to use the cool built-in mapping feature of SmugMug but, because of the large number of photos that are already uploaded to my SmugMug account, that feature won't get used unless I can retro-actively set locations to multiple photos at a time.

      • RogerRoger commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I agree we need a way to map, or easily copy coordinates to, multiple photos. Mapping an entire gallery would be useful, too. A screen similar to the bulk caption/keyword screen that shows the 3 coordinate fields could do this, and could then update to Google one at a time (which I assume is the current restriction).

        Like others, I now geotag in my software prior to uploading, but have many older photos without tags simply because it would take too long.

        It would also be useful if the map on the homepage would only show 1 photo per gallery as part of the 150 pin or 200 photo limit.
