I am using the demo version of HoudahGeo to see if I can get the hang of this whole geotagging thing, but I am having some problems. Here is what I did:For this experiment I used my Canon A400 and my new Qstarz BT-Q1300.
I started the Q1300 and took a few photos.
I got home, imported the jpegs to the iPhoto Library on one account on the computer. I then exported them to the "Shared" directory.
I fired up my demo version of HoudahGeo and tried to get HoudahGeo to see the photos. After some confusion, I figured out that the photos must be writeable, so I moved them to the desktop.
Then I realized, because of the switch to DST, my clock was one hour off. It took me a while to realize that the camera offset has to be set *before* you import them to HoudahGeo.
Finally, I got black photos. I exported them with EXIF info.
I transferred them to my MacBookPro via a USB stick and imported them into iPhoto '09. But when I go to Places I get a "you must have photos with location information in order to use places" and when I click on the little "i", I am prompted to add location information.
However, when I look at the files with Preview the proper location is shown.
Is there some option I need to check in order to get HoudahGeo tagging to work in iPhoto?
Or is it my convoluted workflow?
