Adding photos as attachments to geotagged photo points in ArcMap?

Adding photos as attachments to geotagged photo points in ArcMap?

I'm using ArcGis 10.2, I have photos in .jpeg">

It sounds like the simple thing would be that the database was created in (or created for use with) an older version of ArcMap. You can right-click the geodatabase in ArcCatalog and select "Properties" from the context menu. Then you conveniently have the ability to "Upgrade the Database" right there (you may wish to make a backup if someone else is using the database and needs that older version).

EDIT: Of course the simple thing may not always be the solution (despite Occam's Razor). After reading your first comment to my Answer, I'd suggest that something buggy is going on. Can you try to put your feature class into a new GeoDatabase that you create? Sometimes having a fresh working environment takes care of buggy things like that. That error seems to be incorrect since you are using 10.2 and the requirement is that the database be 10.0+.

That by itself my take care of the issue for you. I've not done attachments but have done the hyperlinks to the photos sitting on the network. Each file has a link as shown in this second screenshot and you use the Hyperlink Tool to bring up the images. Hope that helps!

I have encounter the same issue.

My solution:

  1. Created a geodatabase within the same folder of the geo-tagged photos.
  2. On the "GeoTagged Photos To Point" ArcTools window - Under "Output Feature Class" - Select the geodatabase and name your feature class accordingly. By doing so, you will be able to check the box on the "Add Photos As Attachments"

I'm pretty sure the Add Photos As Attachments feature is only available with Standard licence or above. Did you figure out a solution?

This is very simple using Arcmap.

This can be done in 4 easy step.

Step 1.) Use "GeoTagged Photos to Points" tool to make point feature for the georeferenced images as mentioned in the screenshot below:

Step 2.)Open the "Properties" of the newly created point shapefiles as per the screenshot below:

Step 3.) Go to "Display" tab and tick the check box "Support Hyperlinks using field" and select the field as "Path" and click OK as per the screenshot below:

Step 4.) Finally click the hyperlink button as per the screenshot below and click the point feature for which you want to see the photo.
