How to add a Place to a photo

Adding a Place to a photo lets people know what they're looking at, and also helps group related photos together.

If you've had trouble adding the Place, the trick is to let the computer give you a list of suggested matches, and choose from that instead of typing in the full name yourself. Here's a short (40-second) video showing how to do it:

If there isn't any match for the Place name you type, maybe it was created under a different name? Different people may use different abbreviations for the same Place. You can check the map of Places first to see if that's the case.

And of course if the Place you're thinking of still isn't shown (though together we've created over 900 already!), it's easy to add a new Place.
