View coordinate metadata in Photoshop CS5

DPReview flags the release by Adobe of a GPS data panel for Adobe Photoshop CS5, Bridge CS5, Fireworks, Flash, Illustrator and InDesign. Download it free for Mac or PC.

Once installed, if you have a photograph containing GPS metadata open in one of these applications, you can view the data through the File > File Info menu option — that’s where all the Extensible Metadata Platform (XMP) panels reside, including any custom ones you might install.

It’s a very basic addition, far short of the kind of georeferencing support seen in iPhoto and Aperture, but it is better than nothing if you happen to be in Photoshop and want to check an image’s coordinates or see if it has coordinate metadata at all.
