- 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 single 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. Click the lightning button for instant stamping of coordinates along with all selected options, including subject description and author information (if entered).
If desired, enter a subject description and author information (e.g. a company or agency name) before stamping. This information is applied to a single selected photo, or all the photos in a selected folder.
An efficient workflow starts with sorted photos.
- To enter a unique description for each photo in a folder use File Explorer’s Details pane (see below). Enter descriptions in the "Subject" field, and leave the "Subject Description" window in GPStamper empty. This method applies to all versions of Windows from 7 to 10.
Use File Explorer’s Details pane to add a subject description. Edit the "Subject" field, then save changes.
GPStamper's Smart Clipboard can also be used to enter "Subject" descriptions, similar to the Details pane.
- Use GPStamper's smart clipboard to copy and paste description content from any Windows document, and to write it directly to files for stamping. The smart clipboard minimizes typing, and eliminates typos in complex technical/legal descriptions. Supports English (ASCII).
How it works...
- If no description exists in the "Subject Description" window, click the clipboard icon to paste content copied from any Windows document and write it to the selected file or folder. The pasted description may be edited prior to being written and copied back to the clipboard.
- Or...enter (type) a subject description, then click the clipboard icon to immediately write it to the selected file or folder. The description is also copied to the clipboard.
- GPStamper's "Subject Description" is written to File Explorer's "Subject" field. If no description exists in the "Subject Description" window, GPStamper uses the contents of File Explorer's "Subject" field as the description during stamping.
Folders selected for stamping should contain only geotagged JPG photos or MOv/mp4 videos.
- Including subject and author (copyright) information is possible with all stamping options. Author (copyright) information is saved from session to session.
- Select 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 as GPS (deg/min/sec or decimal) or UTM
- Include horizontal positioning error or DOP (if present)
Option selections are saved from session to session!
AutoLocations are location descriptions automatically derived by reverse geocoding a photo's GPS coordinates.
- AutoLocation reports the closest city (population >1000), state/province, and country.
- To edit AutoLocations (prior to stamping) use GPStamper's "AutoLocate" tool first, then edit the "Title" field in File Explorer's Details pane (below). After editing, reselect the file or folder and choose "Stamp File Explorer Title" from the main menu.
Use File Explorer’s Details pane to edit AutoLocations. Edit the "Title" field, then save changes.
GPStamper is designed for compatibility with file explorer.
- Extract still frames from MOV or MP4 videos (including 4K) and instantly stamp them with location metadata just as you would still photos. Include coordinates, an autolocation, elevation (iPhone), date, time, subject description, and author information in the stamp.
An AutoLocated quad-frame photo extracted from a Samsung geotagged MP4 video.
- 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. Quad-frames are UHD (max), and single-frames are 1x the original video resolution.
all font options are available for use on video frames.
