Photo GeoTag allows you to geotag JPEG and TIFF files, or change the existing geotag information. It’s a great way to add or correct the GPS properties of any JPEG or TIFF file! Have a lot of photos with no GPS values? Now you can easily geotag them. Have photos with an incorrect GPS location? Now you can easily correct the GPS location.
When you open a JPEG, TIF or TIFF image file with Photo GeoTag, the image and a map are displayed on a single window. If the image has GPS properties, a map pin is placed on the map representing the GPS location. To change the latitude and longitude GPS properties, simply drag the map pin to a new location. To add the latitude and longitude GPS properties, either specify the address, or the latitude and longitude values, or simply shift-click the map and a pin is dropped on the location you clicked. It’s that easy! To update the altitude, click the altitude button. No changes are made to the file until you save your changes.
A batch mode is also available for assigning the same location to multiple files.
Major features include
- Change the existing latitude and longitude location of a JPEG or TIFF geotagged file.
- Add latitude and longitude location values to a JPEG or TIFF file that has not been geotagged.
- Add or update the altitude to a geotagged JPEG or TIFF file.
- Import GPX track and waypoint data for reference only (to automatically set the photo location according to timestamps from GPX data see our app “GPX Photo Geotagger”).
- Inspector drawer shows image metadata.
- Send the location to Apple Maps.
- Choose OpenStreetMap as the map source.
- Image is no longer recompressed.
- Batch mode for processing multiple files at once.
- Displays file metadata.
- Export file metadata.
- Show satellite view of location.
- Edit or add photo creation date.
- Export screenshot of map.
You cannot edit photos directly within the Photos library (this is also true with other apps such as Preview). You must export the photos, geotag them, and then import them back into Photos.

Simple, fast tool for geo-tagging photos
This tool does what it says: adds geographic info to your photos. You can do them one at a time, or in batch mode. Searching for a location is super-easy, and it looks like the tool can use alternate map sources, other than the standard Apple Maps.
I found a slight problem with the displayed time for photos take in another timezone, and the developer had it patched in a couple days. Couldn’t ask for better support!
The app is basically OK in that you can geotag a photo. It is not as easy nor as efficient as it ought to be. I hike and mountain bike with my camera and the hike/bike trails in our state parks are not in the App’s map. That means that for off-road photos, you will always be guessing to some extent. When I add GPS data to one picture, in general the next picture will be close to the previous one, but this app doesn’t assume that. It backs its view out a few thousand miles so that you have to zoom in to the same location for picture after picture. Possibly I can work around this. For a low-priced app that does its most basic job, it is OK. A couple of small improvements could make it better.
Being one of those quaint old-fashioned people who still takes photos with a “regular” camera, my photos don’t have location information embedded in them. This has proven to be a good tool for correcting that issues so that photos taken in the same location — whether on the iPhone or my camera — can be easily grouped together. I made a suggestion to the developer on another site and he quickly responded and added the suggested feature, which I appreciated.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
