Can you export Coordinates with a Photo file

Post by TrevorW » Sat Aug 01, 2020 11:01 pm


I recently purchased a QNAP TS 215D as a way to centrally manage my Photo (and lesser extent Video) collection. It is taking me a bit of time to work out how to do this but so far I have been very impressed. I have also learnt that I have a lot more little Video clips than I remembered which was a real bonus.

I love the ease by which I can add Coordinates to my photos through Photo Station and then being able to view the photos on a Map through the Album view. It is something I have been trying to do with a lot of my photos for some time but have found it difficult to do that "easily".

I was trying to work out if the Coordinates I set within Photostation are stored within the Photo file (.jpg) - perhaps in the EXIF info?

The reason is that I am also looking to share some of the Photos with Flickr, for example, and show the location of the Photos on the Flickr Map. I have tried but not sure this is possible as I suspect that the Coordinate information within Photo Station is stored somewhere other than the Photo File (probably a database?).

Do you know if it is possible to "export" or "download" photos from the QNAP to my W10 PC including the Coordinate information I set using Photo Station?

I hope that makes sense and thank you in advance for any help you can give me.
