How to add and edit location info in El Capitan’s Photos app

Photos in Mac OS X El Capitan has gotten some solid improvements. My favorite is — no, wait, I’ll save that for tomorrow — but I do like that fact that you can now add and edit location information (something iPhotos, the app Photos replaces, was able to do for a long time).

Here’s how to geotag a pic in El Capitan’s Photos:

Choose the photo you want to tag.

Select Info from the Window menu.

Click Assign a Location in the Info panel that appears and start typing.

That’s all there is to it.

OS X El Capitan is available as a free update from the Mac App Store. The operating system upgrade supports all Macs introduced in 2009 and later, and some models introduced in 2007 and 2008.
