Working with GPS Data in the Map Module in Lightroom

When you drag images onto the Map in Lightroom’s Map module, and you have Reverse Geocoding enabled (Catalog Settings > Metadata > Reverse Geoencoding), Lightroom will automatically enter Location information associated with the GPS information (Sublocation, City, State/Province, Country, and ISO Country Code).

It’s important to note that Lightroom can treat the Location Information and the GPS data independently of one another. If you move the location of the images (by dragging and dropping them to another location on the map), by default both the GPS as well as the Location Information will be updated.  In fact, this is always true of the GPS information – if you move the image on the map, the GPS data will be updated.

You have, however, the option to override the Location Information. As I mentioned, by default, Lightroom will update the Location Information if you move the file, but you can also change the Location Information manually (perhaps you have a nickname for the location), by typing in any of the Location Information fields.

Lightroom displays the Location Information in grey if it is being automatically generated. If you customize the values (enter your own text), the custom information displays in white. Note: In both scenarios, the location Information will be exported with the file.

As you can see in the first example, the Location Information is gray indicating that Lightroom assigned the information based on reverse geoencoding the GPS data.


In the second example, I have entered “Ferry Plaza Farmers Market” in the Sublocation – overriding Lightroom’s  reverse geoencoding information – locking it in so that moving the image on the Map will no longer  automatically update it.

Lightroom 4 Beta – Enhancements to the Export Options

• When exporting files, in the Metadata section, you can choose to Remove Location Information. Note:  this option is only available when choosing either “All” or “All Except Camera and Camera Raw Information”  as it doesn’t make sense with the other options.

• It is now possible to export images directly to Adobe Revel to be used on your mobile phone or tablet device. Use the “Export To” pull-down menu at the top of the Export dialog.

• Export to DVD is now available on 64-bit Windows machines.

Lightroom 4 Beta- Enhancements to the Library Module

• In the Folder panel, you can now move and/or delete multiple folders at one time.

• In the Collection panel, Option -drag (Mac) | Alt -drag (Win) a collection to duplicate it. More specifically, if the collection is loose (it’s not in a Collection Set), Option -drag (Mac) | Alt -drag (Win) until a thicker line appear between two items (indicating that the collection will be duplicated), and release.  To duplicate a collection within a Collection Set or to duplicate the collection into a different Collection Set, Option -drag (Mac) | Alt -drag (Win)  the collection on top of the Collection Set icon (watch for the highlight) and release.

• Stacking is now available in Collections.

• At the top of the Filmstrip bar, the selected image’s folder or collection is displayed. (This is really handy when in other modules.)

• The Flag attribute is now global.

• You can filter and/or search images based on their Metadata status. Images will be assigned one of several different statuses including Changed on Disk, Conflict Detected, Has Been Changed, Unknown and/or Up to Date).

• You can also search/filter on Map Locations and GPS Data (GPS Location or No GPS Location).

• That folder structure that you carefully crafted in the Develop module to hold your presets is now maintained both in the Import dialog box as well as the Quick Develop panel.
