Tracklogs created with a Holux GPSlim 236 and a Dopod 818 Pro Pocket PC running GPSDash (Tracking Action shot). The NMEA tacklogs created are converted to GPX with GPS Babel and then geotaged with GPS Photo Linker. It supports Digital Negatives (DNG) and strangely Picasa can even place them in Google Earth! (Note: Picasa won't embed GPS coordinates in DNG photos, yet). Also take a look at my Flickr Map for the Azores.

The pictures are then imported into Adobe Lightroom. Here I sort them by star rating and add keywords. Out of 4000 photos 10% (~500) get 1 star and 5% (~200) get 2 stars, 2% (~80) get 3 stars, and 1% (~40) gets 4 stars, I'm not skilled enough for 5 star photos :-). The the top 5% gets converted to JPEG and resized, ready to be uploaded. The best part is the metadata (tags, title, description, gps) inside each photo is automatically read by Flickr.

Next time I'll do a Photosynth Project.

    I justed realized what I did is called PhotoSynth, done the hard, long and complicated way :-) It would be nice if this concept caught on.

    Excellent work!
    You've cleverly worked your way around the problem of selecting digital photos.
