Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 Beta introduces an awesome new way to search and organize digital photographs, making it easy to work with digital images and GPS data. Photographers using cameras that automatically record GPS data are going to instantly love this new feature. For the rest of us, assigning GPS data to your images without leaving Photoshop Lightroom is easy and there is no need for additional equipment. Simply clicking and dragging an image onto the map will “geocode” it with the appropriate GPS coordinates! Likewise, clicking on a map marker will instantly select the appropriate images, making sorting and searching a breeze. The new “Saved Locations” feature is a great way to search for images that were taken around a particular place. I demonstrate how to use this new feature, and the entire map module, to organize my images from Yellowstone National Park in this video tutorial.

The new Map Module is going to be a huge help for landscape and documentary photographers and anyone seeking an easier way to organize images of the natural world!
