Hey everyone

I would like to know if there is a way that I can add pictures to my map for specific places? And how I can arrange my stops if I added a wrong stop at the wrong time? Any guidelines on how to get it more creative or then another app you would suggest? I would like to create something that I can print as a huge poster for my wall with all the stops and specific pics that were known in that place.

Any help and suggestions would really be appreciated.

Thank you so much

Your photos will automatically be associated with your map if you add a (matching) date to both the photo and the stop. E.g. here's two stops I took at Lake Tekapo, each with the associated photos: Feb 2004, Apr 2005. (I think that you also need to set a location to the photo, or at least specify the country, but I'm not entirely certain about that.)

For rearranging a stop, click through to the stop view, then on the ... in the upper right corner of the left side bar. Choose "Edit Stop Details", which will give you a form with first the name of the stop, and then a select box that'll allow you to place it after another stop in the trip.

As far as I'm aware, there's no way to have the photo appear "on" the map, so you really need to click through to the detail view of the stop to see the photo, which works fine in interactive format, but not when you want a static view with photos included. I also don't think there's any provision at this time for getting a view of the entire map that's suitable quality for printing. I know it's a more frequently requested feature, so I imagine it's pretty hard to do, otherwise Peter would have probably added it already.
