PhotoMap for Mac
Photographs are a great way to capture and relive various moments from our lives such as trips, vacations and other significant events. To preview our favorite pictures we can use a wide variety of photo viewers but not all of them allow us to view the precise location where the picture was taken.
PhotoMap is one of those image viewers that enables you not just to preview your pictures but also view the location on the map where the currently viewed picture was taken. Thanks to PhotoMap, you can now browse through your vacation pictures using the world map and recreate the route of your favorite trips or hikes.
PhotoMap comes with a clean and intuitive interface, which is divided into two different panels. In the left panel you can preview your images while the right panel helps you locate the pictures on the map. To start using PhotoMap you just have to select the folder containing your photos and PhotoMap will automatically display them according to their location information.
You can jump to any photo by simply clicking on the corresponding pin on the map or by using the right and left arrow keys. What is more, PhotoMap allows you to switch between three different map types with just a few mouse clicks. You can change to the Standard, Hybrid or Satellite map type from the bottom toolbar. In addition, you can use the “Left” and “Right” arrow buttons to move from one picture to the next.
From the map panel you can zoom in and out various places and pan through the world map just like you would do when using Google Maps. Unfortunately, when you move to a picture located on another side of the map, the map view does note change along with the photo.
