Memory Pictures (Mac OS X)

The core goal of Memory Pictures is to allow to keep your memories alive by assisting you in embedding the location and journal entries within the photo header. We all take photos with our digital cameras and smartphones and it certainly is a great way to look back at where we came from and where we have been to. However, a picture alone may not paint the whole story.

Memory Pics lets you store memories about a picture within the picture itself

Utilising the already available resources built into the JPEG photos is the ability to store vast amount of information. Each time a digital camera takes a photo, all the settings such as shutter speeds, f-stops and so on are stored in the EXIF metadata stored in the photo. Smartphones as well some digital cameras comes with built-in GPS which will add the GPS coordinates of your location to each picture taken. Definitely a great thing to have. However, bad weather and a whole host of issues may render the GPS coordinates to be inaccurate. Also the GPS coordinates is of your position and not the position of your subject.

One of Memory Pictures goal is to allow you to accurately add or modify that GPS Coordinates with ease. This make use of the Apple Maps which is supported in OS X 10.9 Maverick and later. With the built-in map support, it makes it easy to find the location and pin it to the photo or photos. Everything is done visually.

The EXIF’s User Comment is also another useful component of the EXIF metadata but it is not really widely used but it can be very beneficial when used. Instead of developing a diary application or penning down your thoughts on a separate location, Memory Pictures now let you store them right inside your photos which you can view from any website or apps which supports it, including Memory Pictures.

Our experiences stored in memories would outlive us and it is our legacy we can pass to the future generations.

The iPhone comes with a wonderful camera and like many smartphones, it is certain widely used as one. One beautiful thing is that the iPhone comes with GPS and does embed the location as to where the photo was taken into the photo so you can view back and know where those magnificent memories were captured in. It is great if the subject is right in front of you but at times we do take pictures from a distance but the phone only records the GPS of where you are standing at.

The User’s Comment tag is a wonderful addition but it is hardly used.

That’s where Memory Pictures come in. It helps you :-

* Add/Modify GPS Coordinates embedded in the Photos
* Add/Modify Your Personal Notes or Stories, right into the Photos so you do not need to keep separate notes to the photos

Finding Your Photo Location is easy with Memory Pictures and you do not need to know the Latitude and Longitude of the place.

For Photos without any GPS coordinates inside it, like those taken from a Point-and-Shoot or DSLR camera, you can :-

a) Use the Search Feature by typing in the popular place name, address and/or country and it will pin the place for you.

Using the Search Function, type in an address and Magic Pics will locate the coordinates for you

b) To fine-tune the location, just drag the Pin to the actual location and the GPS coordinates is automatically computed. Great for those photos which captures GPS Coordinates.


c) Scroll around the map and bring up the contextual menu and pin that location.

Using the Touchpad or Mouse, bring up the contextual menu at the location to add a Pin

It’s never easier. You can change the GPS Coordinates and Notes to one or more photos on your list.

We do not use any proprietary settings so your user comments and GPS coordinates can be read by any apps or websites that support them.
