Hi,

I got a new 3GS a few weeks ago and when i first started taking photos i always "denied" the App to use my location! Now that i have read a lot about geotagging i realize thats not the best thing to do (for me anyway) and now its to late..

When i upload any photos there is no geo info on any of them, is there a way to turn this "on" again so i can start to geotag?

And, also, if i needed to turn it off again how do i do this? or how can i strip the geo data out of my photos (EASILY!!) if i can't turn it off...?

Any ideas? Thanks.

iPhone 3GS 16GB, 12" Macbook OSX (10.5.8), iPod Touch 2G 8GB., Mac OS X (10.5.8), ----- http://bit.ly/3fhobk -------

To turn on application requests to allow or deny use of Location Services after the phone stops showing the requests:

Settings > General > Reset > Reset Location Warnings

    In Settings, make sure that location services are turned on.

    That was one of the first things i tried... I know quite a bit about iPhones and Touches, I'm a developer... But can't figure this one out.. It doesn't work, you realize i clicked "don't allow" on the photo App, yes? Location services doesn't undo that does it?! Cos it doesn't on my device.. I toggled it on/off many times took photos, put them into iPhoto and NOTHING! just a name size and date... No other information...

    Are you sure that your iPhone has a GPS lock at the time you take your photos? I propose you enable Location Services, then open Maps and wait until your location is determined before you take a photo.
