I've just bought HoudahGeo to help me geotag my photos.
I have a whole lot of waypoints saved in Garmin BaseCamp from a recent hike, and photos (in iPhoto) taken at some of these waypoints. I would like to geotag the appropriate photos using the waypoints I have saved, for this purpose.
I have named my waypoints meaningfully, in BaseCamp, and exported them as .GPX files for use in HoudahGeo. If I try and use the "Load GPS data from file" option a window (that seems to resemble the geotag photo window) slides down and back up again before I can intervene. No photos receive a geotag. I can't stop the window disappearing and at present I am having to manually copy and paste the GPS data across to HoudahGeo to geotag. Obviously, I bought HoudahGeo so that I wouldn't have to do the copy and paste routine.
If it helps, I've tried using a separate .GPX file for each waypoint and with a single .GPX file containing multiple waypoints. I've also tried using .CSV files - just in case Garmin's idea of GPX1.1 wasn't compatible with the .GPX HoudahGeo needs. HoudahGeo behaves in the same way. Just in case, I tried to upload the Garmin BaseCamp-created .GPX in question, but the forum won't let me post a .GPX file.
Am I doing something wrong, or has something broken?
P.S. I also have a track log from my GPS for this hike, but the camera operator changed the batteries in the camera before we started and didn't re-set the camera's clock. Consequently, I have no accurate time data associated with each image, so I can't use the track log to geotag the photos. Instead, I would like to use the waypoints I marked, as a backup, for this purpose.)
