Portable IRedSoft Memory Pictures 1.66
The core goal of Memory Pictures Portable is to allow to keep your memories alive by assisting you in embedding the location and journal entries within the photo header. We all take photos with our digital cameras and smartphones and it certainly is a great way to look back at where we came from and where we have been to. However, a picture alone may not paint the whole story.
Memory Pictures Portable is a lightweight utility that allows you to add the correct GPS coordinates for your photo albums using OpenStreet Maps so that you can indicate the location more accurately.
Rugged, yet intuitive and user-friendly UI
The program comes with an outdated and a rather minimalistic interface that comprises of several panels, each with different functions. Therefore, you can load the photo or album from the upper section of the UI and preview the list of pictures, so that you can quickly select the one that you need to modify.
While the utility displays various EXIF information, you can solely modify the one that is related to the location. As you would expect, you can navigate on the provided map to add the GPS coordinates or, if possible, include them manually.
Allows you to add personal notes to your images
The highlight of the program stems from the fact that you can add personal notes with any type of information that you consider relevant. For instance, you can write your impressions about visiting a museum, a new city, checking out a restaurant or a historical monument that perhaps had a great impact on you.
On the other hand, it is worth mentioning that the tool provides you with two ways to add the coordinates, namely manually or via the visual app. While the map is a more efficient option, it would be useful if the panel would be larger. Moreover, it would be helpful if the tool enabled you to manually add the address instead of the coordinates.
Utilising the already available resources built into the JPEG photos is the ability to store vast amount of information. Each time a digital camera takes a photo, all the settings such as shutter speeds, f-stops and so on are stored in the EXIF metadata stored in the photo.
Smartphones as well some digital cameras comes with built-in GPS which will add the GPS coordinates of your location to each picture taken. Definitely a great thing to have. However, bad weather and a whole host of issues may render the GPS coordinates to be inaccurate. Also the GPS coordinates is of your position and not the position of your subject.
Memory Pictures supports JPEG, JPEG 2000, PNG, TIFF, Canon RAW (CR2 and CR3), DNG, FujiFilm RAW, Nikon RAW, Olympus RAW, Panasonic RAW and Pentax RAW photos.
One of Memory Pictures goal is to allow you to accurately add or modify that GPS Coordinates with ease. This make use of the OpenStreet Maps to provide a visual map and the address query features. With this map support, it makes it easy to find the location and pin it to the photo or photos.
Everything is done visually. Memory Pictures Creator will query OpenStreet Map database to get the Place, Address and Country which you can customize.
