However, older digital cameras or most DSLRs usually do not have a built in GPS unit to add this geographical location information. So if you have a GPS enabled smartphone such as an iPhone or Android phone and desire to add location info to your jpgs or raw images, READ ON!
In a nutshell, in this guide, I will show you how to use your phone's GPS to record your location information then inject that information into your photos. Once you have your equipment setup, this process should not take more than 3 mins in addition to your regular post processing rituals. For this guide, I will use a Mac, Android phone and My Tracks app.
