    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

    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...

    Did anyone find out if we are just automatically entered if we have geotagged or not?

  42. 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

    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
