    If you just want to have access to the GPS co-ords of where a picture was taken, rather than display them in the image, you can use Exifer to read the metadata in the actual JPG file.

    My camera has built-in GPS and will add the co-ords to the image and the metadata but it's too slow to get a fix, so I use the Montana tracklog and GPicSync to geocode the pictures after the ride.

    I played around with a few options...

    1) This is you, Bob... and I made this using an Android app called Photo Editor (dev Macgyver): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.iudesk.android.photo.editor
    It doesn't do all the steps automatically, but it allows you to open the exif data, copy the coordinates, then make a frame with text and paste the coordinates as text:

    2) I made the following two using a windows program called Fotor, however I used Irfanview to open the exif data to get the coordinates and cut and paste them. The one issue I have is it doesn't centre the text -- as is noticeable, and it also doesn't give me any grid lines or markers to roughly eyeball centre.

    First off - thanks for the picture - it'll make a nice poster :)

    I like the end result but it's a bit labour-intensive for me (and for you, I guess, hence you wanting an app to do it).

    I'm going to try and figure out the batch settings and see if I can set up one of these programs to do multiple images in one go.

    Irfanview might be able to do it, I'll check it out.

    I tried to see if Picasa can do frames and GPS data, but it can't do it automatically.

    However you can be in ONE screen and be able to select Frame Type and Add Text, while viewing the JPG Metadata on the same screen. Here's a quick sample:

    Looks good Bob. I couldn't figure out how to add frames in Picasa 3, but no matter if it doesn't have batch mode.

    I did figure out how to do batch changes including adding a simple frame and exif data to the image in irfanview. In fact, it is simple to do, and here are some examples from pics I took a couple years back.

    Just top update... I just ran this batch mode process on all my images from my TransLab tour in 2014... this works awesome, I will definitely be using this to attach info to future tour pics.

    Use the Edit screen and use the Tab with the Blue Sky image (in the panel on the left) - there are 4 border types.

    To display the EXIF data in the Edit window, use the View menu to select Properties, and scroll down to the GPS coordinates section.

    Your finished pics look good - you've cracked the problem, but that solution is above my pay scale - I can't do coding/programing :(
