    Hi,

    I am wondering how photo geotagging works on the iphone.

    I have location services turned on on my iphone 3g, so what i understand from the user manual is that the photo will be automatically geotagged when i take a photo? The camera doesnt even come up with a "Camera would like to use your current location" message? Is the correct?

    When i upload the photos to my mac using iphoto, there doesnt seem to be any info about the location at which the photo was taken on the file? do i have to open it in a specific program?

    What am i doing wrong?

    Open the photo in "Preview". Open the Image inspector and select GPS. Preview pinpoints the location where you took the photo on a world map. From there you can even open the GPS location in Google Maps.
