Default Viewing photos on a map

I may be misremembering, but I'm sure the old iPhoto app on a Mac
allowed a 'map' view. Effectively a scalable map, with pins that
indicated where a photo was taken.

This seems to be missing from the newer Photos app. I've looked in the
help section, which apart from being inexplicably slow to use, shows
screenshots from a seemingly different application, and seems to suggest
it's not there. I can search by location, but there's no way to get this
map overview, which I found useful.

Is there an application for Mac that has this feature? Or am I missing
something?

Location data is picked up from the meta data of the image.
If it exists then 'get info' on the selected image (there is an icon on
the menu bar) will bring up that information together with a map showing
the location.

Yes, sorry, I wasn't clear. I was after a map overview of all of the
photos. So a scalable map (a map that scales between different, er,
scales - 1:1000, 1:1,000,000, etc), from the world, down to my street,
with pins to indicate where a photo was taken.

Ha! And sorry again - still not clear!! Most of my photos are geotagged,
following no small amount of time/effort with iPhoto. It's just the map
bit I'm after.

Perfect, thanks.

I'm *sure* I used to see something similar in iPhoto. In fact, I've just
opened Aperture (bought and barely used a while back) and I see that has
a 'Map' view. But no obvious way to use the Photos library. Hmphh.

But at least I know it can be done. Just got to work out how to get
something to play with the Photos database . . .

You'll get the map just fine. Provided that you are comfie with it
popping up from the web in a window from Goog Maps... I tried it for
you. It's free on Sourceforge:

I don't think you can.

If you:

* hit Command-1 (View Photos), so the Toolbar now says "Moments" (eh?)
* select the title of a "Moment" from the list

you'll get a map - but it will only show the phots from that "Moment"
(what a stupid name for it)

Also, as you say, all the screenshots on the website/in the help seem to
show a toolbar that doesn't exist in the actual Photos application. The
Help says: "Click Photos in the toolbar" - but the "Photos | Shared |
Albums | Projects" it shows is not there in my toolbar.

I am on Version 1.0.1 (215.65.0 by the way.

To put it as succinctly as I can, what you are missing is Adobe
Lightroom. The longer you wait to switch from Photos to LR the more
difficult the switch will be. Photos will only continue to limit what
you can do.

This from personal experience--my wife and I both tried Photos and
found it to be very limiting; it is designed for the most casual of
users who has minimal knowledge and requirements and who does not
expect to go beyond that stage. The problem with that reasoning is that
photography is an activity that can draw one in deeper and deeper, and
Photos is not up to that.

My wife is continuing with Aperture for a while yet (it offers greater
versatility in making books than LR does) and I continued with LR,
which I began using several years ago when it became apparent to me
that Apple would drop out of the competition for a high-end cataloging
and editing package. Aperture was good, very good, probably the best
for several years but Apple's heart was not in it. That Apple worked
with Adobe to create a software solution to transition from Aperture to
LR tells us where Apple thought the serious user ought to go.

So you're down to Lightroom or Photo Mechanic. PM is OK, but Lightroom
is the top choice because it has behind it the weight of the world's
pioneering and premiere maker of graphics applications, it is the
market leader, and more help and tutorials are available than for any
competing software. For those who will not use LR or PS because they
are Adobe haters, get over it. You are cutting off your nose to spite
your face.
