Hi everyone, I have recently started to use iPhoto '09 but having a little difficult with Places. I do not have geotagging, so I am editing the location of my photos manually (nothing too specific, just the city). When I first attempted it, I used the info pane for the event, added the city (saw a pin drop in the appropriate location on the mini-map in the info pane) and then clicked done. However when I went to the Places window...no pins were on the world map!

I closed the computer and decided to try again the next day. Although I cannot imagine I did anything different, this time it worked! Yeah!

But today I added new photos and again edited the locations in the info pane (clicked the little 'i' in the right bottom corner), but while the info pane shows the correct location both in words (Location) and on the mini-map...when I go to the Places window, the pins are no where to be found (only see the pins from the previous day).

Am I missing something simple here? It's driving me nuts! hahaha...

    You are doing it correctly

    The large "places" display consolidates pins to avoid a messy display - try zooming in very close on it and see if more pins do not appear

    I'm going from memory since this is done from work, but I believe you have to use semi-complete addresses (IE., 'Chicago' by itself won't work, you need to use 'Chicago, Il.' or 'Chicago, Illinois'. IF the address is for a 'Place' iPhoto knows (and it knows hundreds if not thousands of places) it will pop up and allow you to choose that location. If nothing happens, that probably means iPhoto doesn't know that 'Place' and you need to provide a more complete or more accurate name for it. Like I say, try getting in the habit of using at least a City and State... you can also choose the 'Locate on Map' feature and it will actually show a map of the place and you can Move the Pin to exactly where you want it, choose from Satellite View, Terrain View, Map view, zoom in, out, or enlarge or reduce the area covered by the Pin (the Blue Circle around the pin. Hope this helps...

    What is exactly the use of the blue circle? Not in the place area I look for a sattelite view but in detail with my picture. I can not get the level of detailed information less when I click on + or - button.

    How can I achieve that?

    It groups photos inside the circle to the location of the pin - I recommend you take the tutorial - http://www.apple.com/findouthow/photos/#places

    I can not get the level of detailed information less when I click on + or - button.


    Can you describe exactly what you are doing please - in most situations that will move in or out on the map
