Ovolab Geophoto 1.1: introducing the loupe for precise positioning of photos.
Torino, Italy (Europe) – April 23, 2007 – Ovolab(R) today released
version 1.1 of Ovolab Geophoto, its geotagging application for Mac OS
Geophoto is an all-in-one application for geotagging, collecting,
browsing and sharing pictures.
Geophoto displays photos on a three-dimensional representation of the
Earth, pinned to the location where each photo was taken. The user
can pan, zoom and fly through the photos, thanks to high-resolution
satellite images of the Earth.
Users can easily drag their pictures to a specific location on the
globe in order to “geotag” them. Once geotagged, pictures can be
shared with other users and will automatically appear in the correct
location on the Earth when opened in Geophoto.
New in version 1.1 are the Loupe, which uses Google Maps to provide a
close-up view of the area below the mouse; and the Tag cloud, a
heads-up display of the terms used to tag every picture, which also
serves as a convenient way to browse photos.
Ovolab Geophoto provides seamless integration with iPhoto and Flickr,
where a vast community already shares geotagged pictures.
Geophoto is a perfect tool for photographers, for travelers, for
people who wish to explore new places in the world, or get the
inspiration for a trip. And it is a wonderful tool even if you’re not
a traveler or a photographer: you’ll be able to discover faraway
places through pictures taken by Flickr users, or simply organize the
photos you’ve taken with your friends, by pinning them to their
Geophoto supports GPS data stored in JPEG files, Camera RAW images
and other formats.
