How to Find Geotag Information on a Photo

Geotagging is the method of attaching the geographical information with photos, videos or even SMS messages. And this option is available on various devices ranging from desktops to laptops and to every other hand held system.

Most people love to geotag their photos so that the information of the place where they took the photo gets stamped with it. It is a wonderful way to recall past memories in a wonderful way. You can also find the location of your photos by entering the exact latitude and longitude of your photo into an image search engine. The photos can be geotagged in two ways: either you capture the image with a geotagged enabled option or you attach the information manually by entering it later when the photo is taken. Geotagging photos will enable you to display the exact latitude and longitude of your photos.

You can find the geotagged information of the photos either using an imaging software with Exif data or an online program.
