    Hey there, 

    The only way to have a photo tied to a track is by taking it while you're recording from the same device. 

    More info here: Take or Add a Picture

    But I recommend you add this track and these waypoints to a folder: Managing Folders in iOS

    This will allow you to see the track and waypoints all in the same place.

    Yes, you can add your pictures to an existing track by following these steps:

    1. On your iPad, follow these steps to Back-up and Sync Your Data to the Web
    2. On your iPhone, follow the same steps to sync your account
    3. This will allow you to access the track on your iPhone: View Saved Data (Track, Waypoint, Route, Map)
    4. Finally, on your iPhone, follow these steps to add your photos to your saved track: Take or Add a Picture

    This seemed to work but I had to limit my import to 15 pics at a time and two of 50 are placed on the wrong spot on the map.

    Hey hwholmes,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Please email support@gaiagps.com with the names of the photo waypoints that are in the wrong spot so I can take a closer look.

    It would be very useful to be able to import photos which contain GPS data as waypoints. Ideal feature would allow dragging and dropping some photos onto the map which would result in a track and waypoints which would contain the photos. The MVP feature would just create waypoints and name them after the photo file names.

    Hi bernk,
     
    You can upload photos with GPS data by adding them to a folder, which will automatically create waypoints for them.  See the "Upload/import georeferenced photos" section in this article: Add or Delete Pictures/Photos on gaiagps.com
     
    I can definitely see how it would be helpful to create a route/track from photo waypoints.
     
    We don't have plans for anything like this at the moment, but I have captured your feedback for consideration in future updates.

    If you have any further questions, please contact Support here.

    Hello,

    When I follow the instructions on Add or Delete Pictures/Photos on gaiagps.com, or if I add photos to a track (from my iPhone), the photos always end up in GAIA's root folder. Is that normal or am I missing a step (I want the photos to end up in the folder that I selected during the upload or in the same folder the track was already in, not the root)? 

    Thanks,
