A typical GPStamper photo includes subject description, coordinates (GPS or UTM), date/time and author information. Including an automatically generated location description, image direction, elevation or other metadata, is optional.
Simply select a geotagged file or folder via drag-and-drop (or make the selection via the main menu) and then choose a stamping option from the main menu.
If desired, enter a subject description and copyright notice before stamping. This information would be applied to a selected single photo, or all the photos in a selected folder.
To enter a unique description for each photo in a folder...
Use File Explorer’s details pane (below) to monitor/modify GPStamper metadata. To specify a unique subject description for each photo in a folder, enter/edit descriptions in the "Subject" field, and leave the "Subject Description" window in GPStamper empty.
Use File Explorer’s details pane to add a subject description. Edit the "Subject" field, then save changes.
Use GPStamper's smart clipboard to copy and paste descriptions from any Windows document, and to write them directly to files for editing prior to stamping (see above). The smart clipboard minimizes typing, and eliminates typos in complex technical/legal descriptions.
How it works...
- Enter a subject description, then click the clipboard to immediately write it to the selected file or folder. This description may now be edited in File Explorer's "Subject" field (see above) prior to stamping. The description is also copied to the clipboard.
- If no description exists in the "Subject Description" window, click the clipboard to paste content copied from any Windows application and write it to the selected file or folder. The description may first be edited, prior to being copied back to the clipboard.
Notice: Folders selected for stamping should contain only geotagged photos, and no other file types.
Including subject and copyright (author) information is possible with all stamping options. Author information is saved from session to session, so typically needs to be entered only once.
- Select from font size, color, opacity, placement and background/border options
- Include image direction (if present)
- Include time (with date)
- Include copyright © symbol
- Select elevation unit (feet or meters), or choose to omit
- Select coordinate notation - GPS (deg/min/sec or decimal) or UTM
- Include horizontal positioning error (if present)
- Select the level of AutoLocation detail
Option selections are saved from session to session!
AutoLocations are location descriptions automatically derived by reverse geocoding a photo's GPS coordinates.
AutoLocation results differ based on whether a FILE or FOLDER was selected, as two different reverse geocoders are used by GPStamper. FILE AutoLocations are typically much more detailed, and describe locations beyond the city, state/province, and country level (especially when "Enhanced Detail" is selected).
Edit a single photo's AutoLocation (i.e. reverse geocode) directly in GPStamper. In this example, additional location information was retrieved by selecting "Enhanced Detail" in lieu of "Standard Detail".
Should you wish to edit an entire Folder's AutoLocations prior to stamping, just use the "AutoLocation Only" tool, then edit the Title field in File Explorer's details pane (below). After editing, reselect the folder and choose "Stamp File Explorer Title" from the main menu.
Editing AutoLocations for each photo in a folder...
Use File Explorer’s details pane to edit AutoLocations. Edit the "Title" field, then save changes.
FYI: Photo addresses displayed on an iPhone are not saved by iOS to the photos. GPStamper generates location descriptions which may be edited prior to stamping.
No user intervention was required to generate this stamp of an iPhone photo.
Extract still frames from videos (including 4K) and stamp them with location metadata just as you would still photos (e.g. use AutoLocation, font options, etc.)
Notice: Video files (MOV [H.264] or MP4) must be in their own (e.g. "Video") folder prior to processing.
An AutoLocated quad-frame photo extracted from a geotagged (Samsung) MP4 file. No user intervention was required to generate this stamp, although a user added subject description would have completed the stamp.
A quad-frame photo is generated from four video frames spaced equidistant within the video clip, whereas a single frame photo is generated from a single video frame at mid-point in the video.
