View Camera Location on Map Command
Photos have two locations associated with them: the location of the subject, and the location of the camera at the time the photo was taken. The icon that ExpertGPS draws on the map is drawn at the subject location. For most photos, the subject and camera locations are so close together that you can treat them as the same, and ExpertGPS does just this. If you are a landscape photographer and regularly take photos of far-off subjects, ExpertGPS allows you to record both the camera location (the exact spot you were standing when you took the photo) as well as the location of the subject.
For example, you might take a photo of the summit of Mount Washington framed by a gnarled branch along a stream. For most casual viewers, this is a photo of a mountain, and the photo icon should be displayed right on the summit of Mount Washington. However, you weren't standing on the summit when you took the photo, you were standing several miles away on a river bank, and this is where ExpertGPS will place the photo icon when you geotag the photo. You can use the Move Selected tool to move the photo icon over to the summit. ExpertGPS will draw a camera icon at the spot where you took the photo, and a line from the camera to the photo in its new location on the summit. By default, the camera and line aren't shown, so as to avoid cluttering the map. When you want to see exactly where a photo was taken, use the View Camera Location on Map command.

- Select one or more photos.
- Then, do one of the following:
- Right-click on the photos, and click .
