"The idea is ingenious as I don't have to deal with a GPS-logger. I always carry my smartphone with me."

Hans-Günther Beer

"Only after using Smart GPS Sync you realize what you have been missing in the past - this is particularly true for photographers who travel a lot. The software tool is programmed quite ingeniously and offers various options of assigning GPS-data to any image in hindsight. Like with any other Picture Instruments application, operation is easy as pie and very innovative. Highly recommended."


You don't want to do without GPS-tags in your photos but you also don't want to run a GPS-logger all the time?

If you take just one single photo containing GPS data with your smartphone you can use "Smart GPS Sync" to transfer that GPS information to all other photos in your camera at a later point in time. If you have no photo with the right GPS data at hand you can also just copy longitude and latitude from Google Maps or Bing Maps into the corresponding fields and apply them to an entire batch of photos.

This is especially helpful for on-location and event photography where not every photo is shot at a new location. This method is also greatly helpful if you occasionally want to add geodata to a photo.

If you are on a photo trip you can conveniently have a GPS-logger run along (for instance in a smartphone or in an outdoor GPS device) and record a .gpx track. In the evening you can simply load the .gpx file as well as all photos of the day into Smart GPS Sync and the software will add the corresponding GPS information into every single photo.*


  • Transfers the GPS data from one photo to any number of photos
  • Writes latitude and longitude information directly into the EXIF data of photos (even for RAWs which means that NO separate XMP file is created)
  • Geotagging with or without GPS logger
  • Is able to remove GPS information from photos
  • Simple transfer of GPS-data from a .gpx file to any number of photos *
  • Recognises tracks and waypoints in GPX files *
