Summary0000277: Transfer of Added Geodata from Google Maps to Flickr
DescriptionI added the geodata (lat and long. data) to a simple JPEG photo using GeoSetter in Google Maps and saved the new file. When I opened the new file using Flickr the recently added geodata was not read by Flickr. Am I doing something wrong or does the geodata added to a photo in Google not get recognized automatically when the picture is opened in Flickr?
TagsNo tags attached.

You didn't use GeoSetters Option to automatically add Flickr-style "machine tags", ie keywords like "geo:lat=123.456", did you? And you don't have to. ;)

Did you check the global setting of your Flickr account to use EXIF/GPS data is set to "yes"? It can be found here:
 »» You::Your Account::Privacy & Permissions::Import EXIF location data

How did you upload the picture? Resizing prior to an upload may become an issue. If you were using the official FlickrUploadr in the older version 2 for example, you must not use its resize option, as FlickrUploadr v2 loses the meta data when it is rescaling an image.

Flickr imports the geo reference metadata from EXIF/XMP GPS datafields for me, so I cannot confirm the premise of this feature wish.

@xaxaxa: Thank you for your comments! I think the problem has to do with Flickr, not with GeoSetter.
