GPS to Apple Photos

Post by guenni » Thu Jun 28, 2018 12:19 pm

When you are changing/adding gps coordinates to a JPG in GC, this information isn't sent to the Apple Photos app.
In the past I read this isn't possible because of a missing API, but today I read at the manual of another program, since Sierra the API's changed and it's working now.

It would be really nice to add this feature.

There is no API for this (to my knowledge).
The MediaFramework is for read-only access of third-party apps.
You have to use the edit with feature in Photos to transfer the image from Photos to GraphicConverter. Edit it and store it back.

Thanks a lot for the fast reply.
Houdah writes on its website "HoudahGeo works with Apple Photos, iPhoto, Aperture, and Adobe Lightroom Classic. It can notify Apple Photos, iPhoto or Aperture when location information has been updated.

Full integration with Apple Photos requires macOS 10.12 Sierra. HoudahGeo can browse your Photos library and add locations to photos. HoudahGeo also adds future-proof geotags to the original image files." (https://www.houdah.com/houdahGeo/?lang=en)

Could I do this with GC as well?

I will check that. Maybe it is done by AppleScript.
