Is there a way to view images (photos) that have location point from Photo2shape by clicking on the point in QGIS?

Mark, just click the "checkmark" next to my answer to accept the question. That will close out the question. – RyanDalton Sep 27 '12 at 22:41

You can then use the "eVis" plugin to set up hotlinks to the photos themselves, and launch a photo viewer by clicking on the attribute field.

This is helpful to view the photo. My question was not clear - we need to see the foot print of the image (aerial photograph) or images to see how they overlay. – Mark Quilter Sep 27 '12 at 15:54
Mark, I would suggest you mark this answer as accepted and open a new question that asks your second question, "how to identify image footprints of an aerial photograph". You will likely get better answers with that question. – RyanDalton Sep 27 '12 at 16:42
