GeoTag: A macOS Application to tag photo locations
GeoTag is a free macOS application that allows you to update image metadata with geolocation tags by panning and zooming in a map window and then clicking on the location where a photo was taken. It is a good way to add location information to photos or fine tune existing location information.
Image file updates are performed using Phil Harvey’s ExifTool. This allows geolocation data to be modified an unlimited number of times with no image degradation as ExifTool modifies metadata without changing the image data. See https://exiftool.org for information regarding ExifTool.

Photos (OSX 10.10.3 and later) will let you modify existing location metadata but not add location data to an image. If necessary use GeoTag to add location metadata before importing the images into Photos. This may also hold true for other image editing applications.
