BlueMelon now supports geotagging

From now on, whenever you upload a photo in whose EXIF information there is stored the location information, the location will be shown on the map on the photo-viewing page. All maps used are using the google maps technology. The users have also the possibility to display a greater map using the "Enlarge Map" link, so that it is easier for them to see the place in its context.

Concering the BlueMelon Importer :  the importer, too, supports geotagging so when you have already geotagged your photos using a different service, you will not lose this information either since it shall be imported.

For those who have not got access to anything such as a camera, mobile phone or just a separate device to provide them with GPS location information, BlueMelon offers the possibility of choosing the location manually on the map together with the possibility of looking up an address. The location information can also be at any juncture of time removed using the "Remove from the map" link. To get the window show below to open, all you need to do is click on the "Edit Location" menu entry from the "Tools" drop-down which is visible in the screenshot above.
