Writing a metadata in a picture file is dedicaced by Exiv2 library. Actually 
only JPEG file can be written. all other can be only read.

I'm working on PNG writting codec, and Andreas, on the TIFF writting codec. 
This will be availble on next Exiv2 release.

Also, in the future, GPS info (and also others stuff) will be stored in 
digiKam database. This will solve your problem about geotagging.
