Quick tip: How to find out where a photo was taken using Preview.app

Today, many people are using smart phones instead of cameras, or have cameras that can record GPS information. Getting access to that GPS information is easy. Here’s how:

  1. Open the photo in Preview.app
  2. Open the Inspector (⌘-I) and select the More Info (icon is an I)
  3. Pick the GPS tab, and at the bottom on that window, click Locate
  4. This should open up your default web browser, and display the GPS location in Google Maps.

See? Easy!
