    I like Photos. I just have one problem:

    Photos I took with my iPhone in Alabama shows Summerdale, AL on my iPhone but Tibet, China when imported to Photos.

    Photos taken in Florida shows Nehri, Nepal.

    Like to visit there but how sexy is it if photos really taken in Tibet will show Alabama...

    Hopefully it will be fixed later.

    I thought Tibet was its own country so I learned something new!

    Since you are evaluating Photos under the beta make sure to use Feedback Assistant to capture this bug.

    I wonder if it's a bug with how Photos is handling the + / - of the W coordinate of the GPS location.

    30.487556, -87.698664 = Summerdale, AL

    30.487556, 87.698664 = Tibet, China

    You are so good! That is the error off course. I dont have feedback anymore, erased it when I cleaned my mac last week. See if I can download it again!

    You should have the Nobel Prize!!

    Found the feedback assistant. it is under the Help-menu in Photos.

    Have reported the bug to Apple. Thanks!
