I am doing a project on mapping tourist attractions and would like to attach photos and videos to point locations. I have read about the Geotag and Import Photos plugin but I can't find it in my plugin lists. I am using QGIS 2.8.2 Wien and I have downloaded the exiftool already.

  • It looks, currently there is no plugin to link media files (photos) to csv file (with location data), and display geotagged photos in QGIS. Jul 26, 2019 at 14:33

It is still available in the QGIS Python Plugins Repository, I can also see it in plugins list:


You can download it manually from the link provided (go to the Versions tab), you should receive a .zip file. Decompress the contents of this to C:/Users/You/.qgis2/python/plugins and restart QGIS (if it is already loaded).

The plugin should now be installed, you may have to enable it by going back to the Plugins list in the toolbar (Plugins > Manage and Install Plugins).

  • Hey Joseph, thank you for your response, much appreciated. I was able to find it. I was not getting it initially because I had not activated the settings to be able to view experimental plugins. The geotag and import photos plugin is apparently. still on experiment. Jan 24, 2016 at 12:10

In case anyone else has the same problem go to your plugin tab>> install and update plugins>>settings and activate view experimental plugin tab. Go back to>> Not installed plugins and search geotag and import photos plugin. You will be able to see it. In short the problem was with my settings.
