Some modern digital camera models are equipped with GPS. This makes it possible for the camera to automatically write its current longitude and latitude to the image's EXIF. This feature is very useful when one needs to find photographs taken at a particular place. But even if your camera does not have a GPS card, you can still specify the location where the photos in a particular album were taken using a geographical name (e.g. Guadalajara, Mexico) or its global coordinates or both. To use this feature, view your album, click "Album Properties" on your left, go to the "Photo-Session Location" section and click "Location Manager" under the map. You will see the list of all locations that you have previously defined (if any). Also, there will be an option to add a new location either by finding the place on the map or by entering its geographic coordinates (if known).

Clicking the "Find on the map" button will display a large world map. Find an approximate area on the map where you believe the photo/album was taken and click there. The map will zoom in. You can refine your search by zooming in as much as you need to. When you are sure that you have found the exact location, click on it, write the name of the place in the "Nameplace" window and click "add". The photo session location will be saved in your account settings. Check the "Show in Photo-session location drop-down menu" checkbox if you want this location to show in the list under "Photo session location" in your album settings.
