HoudahGeo 2.5 - Ideal companion to iPhoto'09 and Aperture 3 Places

April 16, 2010 in Multimedia (E)

[prMac.com] Luxembourg - Houdah Software today is pleased to announce the release of HoudahGeo 2.5, the premiere photo geocoding solution for the Mac. HoudahGeo is tightly integrated with iPhoto'09 and Aperture Places. It offers a myriad of ways to geocode and publish photos. The latest of which is geocoding from iPhoto reference photos.

HoudahGeo 2.5 has adds full integration with Aperture 3. Upon geotagging photos with EXIF & XMP tags, HoudahGeo may notify Aperture that new metadata is available. This allows for Aperture Places to immediately refresh. This brings the same level of integration to Aperture which was previously reserved to iPhoto'09 places.

HoudahGeo is also able to access iPhoto, Aperture & Lightroom databases without opening the actual applications. Thus iPhoto and Aperture users may now handle the whole geocoding workflow within HoudahGeo and still find their Places database to be up-to-date. Enhancements brought along by HoudahGeo 2.5 include:

* New feature: Full Aperture 3 integration
HoudahGeo may now notify Aperture 3 when it has written new metadata. Aperture Places will immediately refresh

* New feature: Bypass XMP sidecars
There is now an option to bypass XMP sidecars during EXIF/XMP export
