Picasa Web Albums now supports GeoTagging

Picasa Web Albums has now caught up with Flickr and started to properly support GeoTagging of Photos.

I have however found a bug in the iPhoto uploader plugin. Basically if you have used a GPS track to Geo tag your photos, if you compress the photos on upload, then you will lose those Geo Tags.

As a point of note, you need to enable the GPS tag reading as described in the Google Help.

I have posted to the Google Web Albums Google Group to see if any one there has come across the problem too.

You need to geotag the photos before you upload them.
