Geophoto 2 ships
Ovolab has begun shipping Geophoto 2, the next major edition of its geotagging application for photos. The software helps users sort images by where they were shot, assigning them to locations on a 3D globe with a free-roaming camera. Tagging is said to be much simpler in v2, thanks to a map view which allows positioning at street level. Additionally, photos can be tied to track points from a GPS receiver.
The program now sports closer integration with iLife '08 and .Mac Web Galleries, and can import photos from Aperture and Lightroom. Tags and coordinates in Camera RAW files can be saved as well. Geophoto 2 costs $25, and is a Universal Binary for Mac OS X 10.4.
