    Hi there,

    I'm guessing you want me to post a picture so that you can extract the location from the EXIF data, right? I did that for one of my photo's and put the coordinates into the picture's location description field and it worked. So now for that one photo it shows up on the map in 'Places' which is what I wanted. :D

    Problem is that I have over 600 photo's, am I really expected to have to do so such work for each one?:eek:

    Perhaps you want me to post a photo because of my mad skills? If so, I'll be sure to do that later on the "Post Your iPhone Photos Here" thread! :eek: I may even join the photo of the week contest! (Using my DSLR)

    You pretend to be smart but you can't figure out how to enable Places.

    Woot!!!

    Hey I figured it out! Go to:

    iPhoto
    Preferences
    Advanced Tab
    Look Up Places: Change to 'Automatically'

    Not sure why this isn't default though...

    Oh, and thanks Bandolier for contributing absolutely nothing to this thread! :rolleyes:
    How would me giving you a picture help at all? You're the one who seems clueless here so your welcome for the answer! :D

    So I could look at the EXIF data to see if there was GPS data in it in the first place?
