In Photos, Get Info displays a small map with photo location, so gps data was acquired and recordered. But it is not listed in exiftool output. How can I get latitude/longitude for scripting?

    What version of ExifTool do you have? How are you running it? – mattdm Oct 6 '15 at 21:57
  • I've just upgraded to the last version. I edited the question. – dstonek Oct 6 '15 at 23:08

    Are you checking the original image, or something that you've exported? if you've exported (it appears that you have based on the file location in your screenshots) note that you need to check the "Location Information" box on the Export dialog of Photos. – Dan Wolfgang Oct 6 '15 at 23:42
  • Photos is an awful tool. You are not able to do anything with its images like drag an drop them to Photoshop or email icons. I have to (and it seems nothing has changed in this new version) copy images I want to do something with them, to a special folder (drag and drop) so then I can manage them. From this folder I got that exiftool data. Photos->File->Export Original File does keep location data, same as what you say Export 1 photo and Include Location. Thanks – dstonek Oct 7 '15 at 0:33
  • @DanWolfgang Post that as an answer – dstonek Oct 7 '15 at 0:35

Are you checking the original image, or something that you've exported? if you've exported (it appears that you have based on the file location in your screenshots) note that you need to check the "Location Information" box on the Export dialog of Photos.

Once exported with location metadata, exiftool --groupname [file] will show you just what you expect to see.

  • Photos setting also has an unchecked checkbox Metadata: Include location information for published items. Checking it those drag and drop images to a folder will containg GPS data – dstonek Oct 7 '15 at 15:05

GPS Date Stamp                  : 0000:00:00
  • Mine did not display any GPS data. Lots of info but location. It was using Yosemite. Now I've upgraded to El Capitan and $ exiftool 'command not found'. I will install it again and let's see. – dstonek Oct 6 '15 at 22:50
  • Despite the upgrade Terminal keeps outputs history. I edited my question. – dstonek Oct 6 '15 at 22:55

    You might check a new unedited JPG straight out of the camera. Many photo editors will omit some sections of the Exif data when they save a file. – WayneF Oct 7 '15 at 17:04
