I am new to geotagging so forgive me if these are dumb questions.

Currently, I am shooting RAW (.cr2 files) on a Canon 5D Mark II and then I import the images into Lightroom 2.2. I just tagged a photo using HoudahGeo and then I am trying to save the GPS data back out with the original image.

1. It seems like HoudahGeo always wants to save a new file. I have checked the tag originals / masters option. Does this option not work with Lightroom? I saw that iPhoto and Aperture are supported, but no mention of Lightroom.

2. I was able to tag a photo and then import into Lightroom and it seemed to work OK. Is this what I should do? Seems like I would be best to tag all the photos before I import them into Lightroom.

Thanks for the advice. I am just trying to figure out the best way to do things.

You need to uncheck the "Create copies" option. HoudahGeo will then write back to the existing files. In Lightroom, you would ask to reload metadata from XMP.
