Geotags add geographic information in the metadata of the photos; in most cases only refer to the coordinates (longitude and latitude) of where the photo was taken. However, it often happens that the photos you take with your camera phone does not include those geotags unless you have previously configured the geotagging in the camera application on your smartphone, just as the same will happen if you upload a photo taken with a compact camera or SLR who does not have GPS. For all these cases is where you want to use are 2 applications which we are going to talk about now.

Add coordinates all your photos and include them on the map of Instagram photos.

It has not happened to you that you have uploaded a photo to Instagram from your phone’s gallery or from your PC using Bluestacks and when you wanted to add it to your map, photos, it has not left you. As well, this is because Instagram looks for the geotag information in the metadata of your photo before loading the map and if you can’t find the coordinate data, then it shows a message that says “cannot find the place” and automatically uncheck the option “Add to the map of photos”.

To prevent this from happening, we present three interesting applications for both Android and for iPhone, which lets you add the geotag coordinates of each photo manually, select the location you want directly from a map.
