I have a collection of photos (already geotagged in EXIF) and I'd like to put thumbnails of these pictures on a map (at the location where they were taken).
Just looking for a static visualisation of a map with picture thumbnails - no need for any interactivity (the thumbnails need not to be clickable or mouse-overable), but I do need a way to control the size of the thumbnails (but it can be a global setting that applies to all the pictures). There would be only a handful of thumbnails on a map.
I am new to QGIS, and hoped that I could accomplish this by creating raster layers from .jpg images - and although the pictures are read into QGIS and the coordinates recognised (in Properties), I don't see the picure in the right place and I cannot resize them.
I tried looking into eVis, but that also doesn't seem to do what I want.
Oddly enough, also in Google I cannot find any examples of QGIS-made maps that have these .jpg thumbnails on them. With all the dazzling options in QGIS, surely there must be a simple way to achieve this?
Edit: While still researching this, I came across the digiKam application (digikam.org) that does exactly what I would like to do in QGIS. It puts photos on a map layer, and lets you change the size of thumbnails (see screenshot) Unfortunately, the thing it doesn't do is read GPX files and other GIS functionality...
