Microsoft introduced two new products for geotagging and managing photos.

Microsoft Pro Photo Tools and Expression Media 2 are now able to handle geo data for the photos you have taken and associated with GPS data.

"These two products really simplify the process of geotagging and organizing digital photos by location, even without a GPS device," said Josh Weisberg, director of the Rich Media Group at Microsoft. "We'll continue to look for ways to simplify features like geotagging that help keep photographers organized."
The Pro Photo Tools and Expression Media 2 are designed to work together to help photographers better manage their digital image collections with new comprehensive digital asset management functionality including geotagging. Expression Media 2 has an open architecture, supports multiple file formats including RAW, and can be used either on Windows or Macintosh operating systems, giving photographers more control over images and greater flexibility. It also allows quick export of photos into multiple formats to produce slide shows, video, and interactive Microsoft Silverlight-powered Web galleries. Expression Media 2 will be available for purchase in mid-May. A trial version is available here.

Microsoft Pro Photo Tools are available as free download.
