Hello All,

I'm friends with a couple that went to Eurpoe recently for a few months. One has an iPhone, the other a Samsung Galaxy, and Regular Digital Camera, between all three there are thousands of photos.

The iPhone has all its photos geotagged, and shows them by locations, and He is very happy with how iOS manages these photos.

The Samsung Galaxy & Digital Camera took photos that don't have any geotagging, and even the dates don't seem to match up right. And the Windows 7 doesn't seem to honour the image orientation (some photos are rotated -+90deg).

They're after some software that can help manage all the photos together in one big library. 
It would need to be able to add geo-tags to the non-tagged photos, hopefully by using locations from the existing correctly tagged photos.

The smarter/easier the software is, the better, because as you can imagine, working with ~4,000 images may take a long time if done manually.

Needs to work in Microsoft Windows as a program no an online service.

I was thinking of trying out the latest Picasa? 
Not so keen on using an online service because I cant stand the thought of uploading thousands of pictures over ADSL, & not sure what their data caps are.

Advise much appreciated.

I'd suggest Picasa. It does the location thing.

Don't know how you would update the untagged photos other than manually.

there are a bunch of EXIF utilites out there that can rename and reorganise files based on the "date picture taken" exif field held within. I think I last used one called "THE Rename". if you organise the photos into folders (e.g. locations) then you can also rename them with date and location and insert tags into the photos too.

Lightroom 5, the map module on it is amazing. If I remember to do it I'll take a screenshot of it when I get home.
