Having trouble getting your iPhone mobile photo uploads to automatically GeoTag when uploaded to Flickr? Here's a few tips to help

Here’s a tip for Flickr users who want to share their GPS information with their photos… note, in order to do this you’ll need to be capturing photos using a GPS-enabled or GPS-aware camera (check the smartphone hardware settings on your device to ensure that GPS or location sharing is turned “ON)”. You’ll notice that photos on Flickr can optionally be Geo-Tagged, this will enable you to view the photos on a map or access all your streams Geo Tagged photos from the GeoRSS feed (Flickr provides this to all users – see the very bottom of your Flickr page for a link to it). You can actually view all your stream’s GeoTagged photos on Google maps by copy/pasting the GeoRSS feed url into Google maps or Google Earth – Flickr also provides a handy KML link

To auto Geo Tag your Flickr photo uploads you’ll need to enable this functionality in your Flickr account settings. When logged into Flickr, see  your Account Settings / Privacy & Permissions, and set the “Import EXIF location data” to YES – by default it is set to NO. Once you do so you should be able to see your Geo Tagged photo uploads on the map that is provided. See my Flickr Stream HERE

Note, for privacy/security reasons many Flickr users tend to prefer to manually place their photos on the map. Having a default setting of yes to sharing GPS EXIF data can result in sharing the precise location of photos that you may not wish to publicly share… be careful! As an example, I once noticed a professional photographer who was sharing all the portrait photos he had captured, many of the photos revealed the home location where family photos had been captured…
