Geotagging Data in Picasa

I’ve just opened up Picasa for the first time in ages.

First thing I noticed was how lightening fast it is compared to iPhoto. It’s blazing!! But just scanning through the photos I noticed a small red pin next to images I’d taken with my iPhone.

Turn outs that Picasa now has a ‘Places Panel’ which uses Geotagging data to show where your photo was taken. Picasa will write the longitude and latitude to the photo’s EXIF metadata. You can also view the data (GPS Latitude and Longitude) of a geotagged image in Picasa by selecting Properties.

The integration is really nice too.

They used Canon and Carl Zeiss lenses and it was graded using Magic Bullet.

PhotoSketch. The Internet Image Montage Mega-Machine

http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=6496886&server=vimeo.com&show_title=1&show_byline=1&show_portrait=1&color=ff0179&fullscreen=1

PhotoSketch: Internet Image Montage from tao chen on Vimeo.

This is has been getting loads of coverage but what it does it pretty mind boggling so I wanted to share.

Created by Computer Science & Technology student at Tsinghua University and the National University of Singapore, Photosketch lets you draw outlines with labels, then some seriously clever software takes over and matches real life images to create your composite.

The video explains it better.
