Is there a way to turn the geolocation feature for photos off? Is this per application or phone-wide?

edit I have a Droid X. I would like to have geolocation off even if my gps is on. Is there a way to do that?

What phone do you have? Most manufacturers that I know of have custom camera apps. (It's per-application). –  Matthew Read Apr 28 '11 at 16:15
    
If GPS is off, does it still attempt to put in the Geo Location data? –  Ryan Conrad Apr 28 '11 at 17:22

This video seems to cover it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUV31pKOZcg&feature=player_embedded

To recap:

  1. Open Camera app
  2. Open Menu
  3. Tap "Tags"
  4. Uncheck Auto-Location tag
  5. Done.

For the camera in Jelly Bean it's a little easier:

  1. Open the Camera app
  2. Tap the "Circle" in the lower right to open the menu
  3. Choose Settings
  4. Make sure the toggle for "Store Location" is set to Off

I understand the camera for Jelly Bean 4.3 is a little different (it presents the options as an arc instead of a circle) but the steps should be the same.
