Set / Remove Pins

Quickstart <Navigation> Map Handling

The pins on the map denote the geotags of your photos.

You move the map to find the location where a photo was taken, then you assign this location to the photo.

You can also use the map to see where you have taken photos. Select a pin on the map to show the photo in the photos list.

In Version 2.0 the pin buttons have been moved to the toolbar:
