I can't see geotags even though geotagging seems to work fine.

When you import images from camera directly to library of your photo editor (Lightroom, Aperture etc), and run geotag photos afterwards, you might not be able to see GPS location attached to your images.

This happens because lot of photo editing apps does not refresh metadata of images in their library. When Geotag Photos writes new info (latitude, longitude and altitude),  your photo editor might not notice it.

In this case you can either geotag images before importing them into your photo editor or you can let photo editor re-read metadata.

In Lightroom:
select photos > right click > go to "Metadata" > select "Read metadata from files"

In Aperture:
select photo > go to "Metadata" in title bar > select "Update from original"
