GPS Data panel available for Adobe CS5 Products

John Nack announces the availability of a GPS Data panel for Photoshop CS5.

Hopefully this sees the start of increased focus on GPS in Adobe products. They have plenty of support but not a fully coherent solution as seen in a product like Aperture.

However, the installation method leaves a lot to be desired, which seems to be a running theme with Adobe installers! I remember an update of Illustrator where you essentially had to open the Application Package just to put a small file in a specific place. The inverse of this is the latest issue with the Flash installer for Mac, where a traditional installer is wrapped in an Adobe AIR package.

Anyway here are the correct installation instructions for a Mac.

1. Download the Disk Image here.

2. In the Finder, press Apple + Shift + G and paste in this path:

/Library/Application Support/Adobe/XMP/Custom File Info Panels/3.0/panels/

3. Create a folder called gpsData

4. Copy all of the contents of the Disk Image into the gpsData folder.

5. Restart Photoshop
