[prMac.com] Luxembourg - Houdah Software has announced the immediate availability of HoudahGeo 2.1: the premiere photo geocoding solution for the Mac. HoudahGeo 2.1 adds support for the photo sharing web site locr.
HoudahGeo is a one-stop photo geocoding software for the Mac. It is the ideal companion to the new "Places" feature in iPhoto'09. HoudahGeo also integrates seamlessly with Apple's Aperture and Adobe's Lightroom.
With HoudahGeo you may "pin" photos to locations where they were taken. Just like an expensive GPS camera, HoudahGeo may store latitude, longitude and altitude information right within the image file - invisibly with no loss of quality. HoudahGeo writes EXIF, XMP and IPTC tags.
HoudahGeo caters to two very different needs:
* Geocoding for archival purposes using EXIF, XMP and IPTC tags
* Geocoding for publishing to Google Earth, Flickr or locr
Locr is a revolutionary geotagging photo community. According to the slogan "Geotag, Print & Share - Show your World in Photos"- locr offers users the possibility of visualizing photos with the aid of street maps, satellite images and location information. locr has specialized in travel, geophotography and geophoto-software solutions for digital cameras and mobile phones. Within the community people from all over the world share, rate and comment the most beautiful photos. With the "locr Geophoto Book", the first travel photo book that contains auto created maps (kill street) and wikipedia based photo descriptions, locr will extend its product range with print products in spring 2009.
* Mac OS X Version 10.4.8 or higher, including Leopard
