    There is something about the Nearby map that I don't understand: why my locations about Peru are missing? And I remember another one (about Lima) from someone I can't remember the name that is missing too…

    @cinzinc it says 'Put on Map (Beta)' ; it should be towards the bottom of the options :)

  20. freezedudul
    freezedudul ·

    i found the geotag system is not 100% correct because i tagged some of my photos in 1 location but showed in different location when i look back those photos :(

  21. adi_totp

    stouf ·

    Wouldn't it make sense to select the winners based on the diversity of places rather than on the number of pictures? Just a question...

  42. saidseni
    saidseni ·

    Why nobody answers my question? LSI, hello?! There are locations missing in the nearby map, why is that? I always placed my locations in the map, why aren't they and other people's locations showing? Can someone explain, please? Thank you.

  48. aim2run
    aim2run ·

    ah, i didn't realize that geotagging didn't port any of the city and country information from the old lomohomes. is there a way to do that?

  49. kvboyle
    kvboyle ·

    @saidseni, I'm not 100% sure but I think the geotag works for individual photographs in your home, I think that locations articles for the magazine are on their own map

  50. ubmba04jp1
    ubmba04jp1 ·

    OK, got most of my pictures tagged from my lab!...but I don't see how it works with the Nearby-page!

  51. annaesss
    annaesss ·

    @ubmba04jp1 me too!
    @all: how does the geotagging work!? can anyone explain what i have to do!?!?

  52. saidseni
    saidseni ·

    @kvboyle, thank you but I already know that, the problem is that there are locations missing in the nearby locations map… :( The weird part is that nobody seems to notice that and I know the locations missing aren't just mine…

  53. saidseni
    saidseni ·

    @ubmba04jp1, @annaesss, I think it takes a while to update but I'm not sure because I spent the all time of this rumble without access to flash so I can't do anything at the lab! :((((

  54. ipdegirl
    ipdegirl ·

    yes! finally everything is geo-tagged. it also gave me the opportunity to make sure the rest of my tags were complete.

  55. iaki
    iaki ·

    yay! mee too. all my photos with geotag!

  56. ratonchuelo
    ratonchuelo ·

    and now... how do we take our piggy points?

  57. estelletse

He likens film photography to using cassette tape and relies on his favorite combination of LC-A and Ferrania Solaris 800 in creating evocative images. In this interview, our Newcomer of the Week from Tokyo Japan shares more about his affinity for analog photography.
