Geotagger lets you geotag your photos using Google Earth.

Simply point Google Earth (version 4 or above) at the location you want, then drag your images onto Geotagger's icon (in the Dock or Finder). It will then insert the coordinates into the Exif data of the images and you're done.
What's New
Updated in 2.0 :
  • The icon now shows how many images are left to tag
  • Performance increase, should be noticeably faster again (less Applescript more Objective-C)
  • Included the version of exiftool (7.54) to increase compatibility with more image types
  • Help file to make it more obvious how to use Geotagger correctly
Requirements
Intel/PPC, Mac OS X 10.5 or later

Tried this to geotag 400 holiday pics and it is excellent. Works simply by drag and drop from the finder to the Dock icon and crucially, can tag batches of photos by this method. Boy do I love software like this. So simple, effective and reliable. If you're new to geotagging, use this free app first, then try out the alternatives. You might find, like me, that there's no need to go beyond this, 'cos it just works.

Excellent work, very simple, just curious as to which co-ordinates it takes from Google Earth, the centre of the screen? Also, is there any chance of adding altitude, definite donation if that could be added ;).

Hi Dtra33,
you can use GeoNamesTagger to do that. Since version 1.3.2 it supports writing the gps-altitude to your images... Besides that you can automatically add location informations (such as country, city, street, ...).

@TheOneAndOnlySepp:
GeoNamestagger is a fake, it's not as free as it pretends, it only gives license under criteria, otherwise runtime is limited.
But anyway, Geotagger works better and by far more simply.

The app works beautifully, even though going through google earth is kind of a round-about way of getting things done. I'll hang on to this app, but probably won't have any use for it with the addition of geotagging in iPhoto 09.

Really? What's wrong with the icon? It shows photos and it shows Google Earth so it describes the purpose of the app. What were you looking for?

Take a look at the icons from "Transmission", "Marsedit", "Ripit", etc. Yours looks like something from 1990. :-P

Ahh, a 3D rendered icon. I could probably do that, send me a donation and I'll put it towards a 3D modeling program/graphics editor of my choice.

It is in the way I like app : very simple, quick and practical. Works also with NEF (Nikon RAW). Files are directly GeoTag, no need to save geotagged files like other app.

In one word : great !

I have switched it over to ExifTool so it should edit RAW files now too. Check it and let me know if you have any problems

why not use exiv2? It does the job just fine, and I was able to get help in compiling it into one binary I could include in the app.
