Assign location information to projects

If all the photos in a project were shot in the same location, you can save time by assigning location information to the project in Projects view. Rather than selecting photos in the Browser and assigning them a location, you can assign the location to the project. Assigning a location to a project assigns the location to all versions in the project.
