photo-sharing

In #balloon-mapping, #timelapse, #photo-monitoring and other methods documented on this site, you often end up with thousands of photos, which are hard to upload to the web or share with others.

There's documentation on a few methods for this under the #lens-distortion tag * **Geotagging** -- if you want to add location data to your photos, or to take photos with location data, see #geo-tagging as well as #gps....
