I have tens of thousands of geotagged photos. Can I use GM to convert this photo library to a waypoint gpx, with date of taking as one of its description?

    In GM go to the folder(s) with all the images; select and open all. Assuming that they are all correctly geo-tagged, they will open as points in GM.

    In GM go to the Control Centre and select all the images and then go to Options. Click on the radio button "select selected attribute value for name" and from the drop-down use Timestamp (or equivalent).

    The image points on screen should now have date/data data against them.

    Now simply use the export "vector/lidar data" and choose the GPX option.

    I hope this helps.
