Automatic location Collections

Location collections group together files based on the geographical location information in the files. This information is present in photos taken on smartphones when location services are enabled, and in certain cameras.

To see these collections, click on Collections in the main menu. The collections are listed in the Places grouping.

A few things to note:

  • The collection is normally at the level of a city, such as San Francisco or London. Sometimes a collection may be created for a district or landmark.
  • When you open a photo and click on More Info and then Show More (see File information) you can view the Latitude and Longitude information. This information is not editable.
  • Collections are not created for states, regions and countries. However, when you use the search feature, you can search for them. For example, searching for United States or California will return photos taken in San Francisco.
