HoudahGeo 2.5

Send Article to a Friend

Houdah Software has released a minor update to the photo geocoding software HoudahGeo with a handful of new features. Changes include full compatibility with Aperture 3 (previously HoudahGeo would not automatically update Places in Aperture when new metadata had been added), the capability to bypass XMP sidecars during EXIF/XMP exports, and added support for log files created by the Wintec WBT-202 and Sony GPS-CS3. Also, USB connections are now supported for the Holux M-241 track logger, an issue with causing duplicate albums in Flickr has been fixed, and a bug causing incorrect timestamps on image imports has been addressed. ($30 new, free update, 6.5 MB)
