|Ovolab Geophoto 1.1: introducing the loupe for precise positioning of photos.|
Torino, Italy (Europe) -- April 23, 2007 -- Ovolab(R) today released version 1.1 of Ovolab Geophoto, its geotagging application for Mac OS X.
Geophoto is an all-in-one application for geotagging, collecting, browsing and sharing pictures.
Geophoto displays photos on a three-dimensional representation of the Earth, pinned to the location where each photo was taken. The user can pan, zoom and fly through the photos, thanks to high-resolution satellite images of the Earth.
Users can easily drag their pictures to a specific location on the globe in order to "geotag" them. Once geotagged, pictures can be shared with other users and will automatically appear in the correct location on the Earth when opened in Geophoto.
New in version 1.1 are the Loupe, which uses Google Maps to provide a close-up view of the area below the mouse; and the Tag cloud, a heads-up display of the terms used to tag every picture, which also serves as a convenient way to browse photos.
Ovolab Geophoto provides seamless integration with iPhoto and Flickr, where a vast community already shares geotagged pictures.
Geophoto is a perfect tool for photographers, for travelers, for people who wish to explore new places in the world, or get the inspiration for a trip. And it is a wonderful tool even if you're not a traveler or a photographer: you'll be able to discover faraway places through pictures taken by Flickr users, or simply organize the photos you've taken with your friends, by pinning them to their neighborhoods.
Geophoto supports GPS data stored in JPEG files, Camera RAW images and other formats.
