I am looking at switching over to Lightroom from Picasa. I started the trial of Lightroom and noticed many of my photos that are geotagged in Picasa do not have GPS information in Lightroom. How do I get this geotagging information out of Picasa, so it is included in other applications such Lightroom?

Edit: After further investigation it appears this data is stored in the file, but not picked up by Lightroom. See the screenshots below of an online metadata viewer and of the Windows Properties Details.

  • Can you try to import a photo from Picasa to Daminion, then right click on a photo and go to Actions > Show All Metadata. Do you see any GPS info there? You can also open Window > Map panel and check for any GPS markers for imported images there. – Murat - Daminion Software Dec 30 '16 at 15:00
  • Free version of Daminion that you can download here: daminion.net/download allows you to check this info. – Murat - Daminion Software Dec 30 '16 at 15:01
  • Maybe check the date tags? According to this Adobe forum threads, Lr apparently has trouble picking up geotags in EXIF if date tags are malformed. – inkista Jan 3 '17 at 21:29
