Adding GPS data to a Photoshop file

Using Photoshop or Bridge, is there a way to manually add GPS data to a photo that did not capture the GPS data when the photo was originally taken? I am using a Nikon camera, not an iPhone.

I know about the File Info command, but the GPS fields under File Info don't seem to be editable.

Eugenio, Thank you so much for responding!

When I try to enter the latitude and longitude I get this error message;

I tried entering the latitue in this format: 41°24'12.2"N 

And also in this format: 37.327710

Bridge refused to take the degree minutes seconds format and the decimal format.

What should the format look like that Bridge will accept?

Is there a conversion utility that can convert my numbers so that Bridge will accept them?

"What should the format look like "

 

You are not using the format it's asking for, such as the comma after the dd. The format has to look like the ones in their examples.

 

I found this blog that may help you convert to Bridge's non-standard format:

Jane-e and Eugenio -- Many thanks for your help. I am able to get Bridge to accept the longitude, but not the lattitude.

These are the coordinates I'm working with:

Lat and Long (37.327710, -121.997500)

GPS Coordinates 37° 19' 39.756'' N 121° 59' 51'' W

 

This is what I tried to enter in Bridge. Latitude was accepted, but longitude was not accepted, so I am still mystified.

Latitude 37,32.7710N
Longitude 121,99.7500W

 

I look forward to hearing from you if you have further suggestions.
