Lightroom Free GPS Technique

Lightroom Map Module, A Free GPS Technique!

As a photographer I always use keywords and tagging for my images, two simple steps which makes finding images a breeze. You may have thousands of images in your hard drives and when you want to select some images for your projects, it can be time consuming to find the photos you are looking for. Key words and tagging are very helpful, but what if you are searching for images from a particular location regardless of the keywords?

Or you key worded your images as a trip to Montreal and there are hundreds of images but you are searching for images you took in one of the parks and you can not remember the name of the park?
