Something I ran across last night that needs further testing is that if there are several pinned tags in the area, as you scroll out, the pinned areas will combine. It looks to me like you can then open this combined pin and make a change to location, etc.
For example, if there are three geotag pins in close proximity and one has three photos, the second has four photos, and the third has five photos, if you scroll out far enough, these three pins will combine and show you there are 12 pictures in that pinned area.
Like I said, I ran across this last night and I need to test further.
This facility is also useful if you want to merge points. For example I took photos from a hotel terrace. Ina an area no more than100 square metres I got 20 different points. To merge them I zoomed out till they were grouped, right clicked and selected 'display all photos at this location'. Then I selected all the photos and dragged them to the desired point.
It works but it is clunky. It would be better if, having grouped the items, there was a right-click option '"Merge all grouped items"
Edit: However, there is not enough granularity in the zoom steps
I am trying to merge photos into two groups taken ta the west and east ends of a harbour. There are many points at the east and only one at the west. When I zoom out to group the ones in the east, they don't all merge. I carry on zooming out, but the point at which they do group also groups them with the ones at the west. I zoom back in one step and they separate.
So I have to zoom right in and handle them as individual pointers, which is time consuming
Frank's suggestion that we should somehow be able to slect multiple points for an action would help here so +1 from me.
Edit: And although you can right click a pointer and choose 'Select a Place tag to all images at this location' (which is bad English) you can't right click and add keywords, which is a shame.
As for the bad English, make it "Assign
a Place tag to all images at this location" or 'Select a Place tag for
all images at this location.'
