Panasonic Lumix DMC ZS7 w/ GPS Data issue

by sccpoa / October 2, 2010 1:32 PM PDT

When viewing the photo's on the camera, the GPS data is displayed OK, (location, historical landmarks and places etc...). I transferred all the pictures to my computer and used the Photofun studio software supplied with the camera. All GPS data is still ok. The question I have, is how do I get all the data to stay on the pictures if I transfer them to a file for printing on a different source? Seems that the data is only displayed if I use the photofun software. I want to take the file to a store for printing and have the GPS data on the pictures. I took the memory stick out and went to Walgreens to print the pictures, but no data was on the pictures, not even the date the picture was taken. Printing them on my computer using photofunstudio will work, but it would take a long time, and go through a lot of ink. Any ideas on how to get the data to display without using photofun studio?

EXIF - Exchangeable Image File
by snapshot2 Forum moderator / October 3, 2010 12:49 AM PDT

All .jpg photo files contain an EXIF

GPS data is stored in the EXIF.

GPS in cameras is relatively new and there is not much software available that can read the GPS part of EXIF.

But GPS is growing more popular and new things are coming to the market.

To see the latest information, I suggest you start at:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exchangeable_image_file_format

You will find several links there that should be interesting to you.

Thanks for the response. I found several (free) EXIF editor programs that allow changes to be made to the file in the photo, but not just to view the data as is. I'll keep looking.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
