GPS coordinates in pictures!

A great tip by Nessuno:

Many of us don't know that image readers like Mac OS Preview can read coordinates saved within our photos so we can track the exact position of the place where that photo was taken. When you open a photo with the coordinates saved in, go in the image Inspector and click on GPS and you'll see the coordinates of the place where the photo was taken; click on Find button (within the Inspector panel) and your browser will open Google Maps with the exact place where the coordinates points to. To add GPS coordinates to your photos you can use GPSPhotoLinker, it's easy to use (using the command Manual Coordinates) and it's free. You can find it here: http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/24820

Some cell phone (like some NOKIA and LG) and some Pocket PC or smartphones (HP or HTC) adds GPS coordinates automatically when taking a photo (only if supported by the operator).

@g: it works with EVERY photo with the GPS coordinates within. iPhone does not put coordinates on automatic. Actually only some PocketPc (with GPS inside), some Nokia, some HTC phone can do it (only if an GPS antenna is installed).
Some Digital Camera does the work too.

@jane: I think there's an INSPECTOR in Tiger too. Look for it on the customize toolbar menu in PREVIEW.
