It can if you turn the function on in the settings. In the settings menu there's an option for "GPS", that when checked turns on geotagging: via GSM Arena & CareAce
I found a camera mod here that allows disable of geotagging and does it by default. It looks like I either need ADB or root to install it. Edit: The camera mod doesn't work, as far as disabling geotagging. Updated Answer: The Amazon App Store has Camera Advance Lite (and a non-lite for that matter) that has the option to turn off geotagging, which ...
I haven't looked at removing geotags yet other than desktop apps already mentioned above, for which I use the GeoTag Security. However, for preventing geotagging in the first place, this is easy seeing as you are rooted. I recently wanted to do this, wrote to Samsung support and they told me the ability to do so in the camera app was removed with the last ...
As a solution to #2, GeoTag Security is a program you could use. It (should) run in XP, so you would have to copy your pictures to your computer first, or hook your SD up via usb, but it should do the trick! Here's the site where i found it, the above is a direct link to their site.
imagemagick has a "strip" command line argument which will remove all EXIF data (try it with the convert command.). It might be a little excessive, but imagemagick is very very very scriptable. However it will recompress the image. See the answer to this question on stackoverflow. Short version: jpegtran or exiftool.
I've just tried on my Nexus 4 and it does show up, although very very briefly. I had GPS turned on, took a photo and quickly opened the app switching 'menu'. I saw the GPS notification show up for about 1 second and then it disappeared. I guess this is because it quickly grabs your location and stores that with the image, and then "doesn't care" where you ...
There are a couple of apps in the Playstore which permit you to view/Edit EXIF data: Photo Image Editor - Photoshop (free) says it can View, edit, or delete EXIF data Same promised by Photo Editor Exif Editor and Viewer (paid) promises to remove, modify, and add individual or multiple EXIF tags Pixelgarde even states: Edit exif metadata for several photos ...
This has been left out of the 4.2 Camera application. You could get around this, if you really wanted the icon back, by installing the old camera app. You would need to be rooted to do this. You could also install a custom camera app off Google Play, which will not require you to be rooted.
I've found that if I'm using another app in the background that polls for location (e.g. latitude in Maps) I tend to get much more accurate geo-tags in photos. YMMV, but perhaps if you know you're going to be shooting photos you can open up Maps or similar first to start the process going. WRT your battery life question, leaving maps open tends to destroy ...
There is no setting in the camera phone for GPS on my Galaxy S GT19000. I disabled everything in Settings > location and security. It was still geotagging my photos, and I couldn't work out how it was doing that. But if you go to applications > local, it was here for me. Just visit the Settings section. Nasty.
