DotSoft's MapWorks Base includes a tool that lets you select multiple photos.  It then extract the GPS Lat/Long values and even the Direction the picture was taken (if the camera had a compass).  It projects to your target system and places a built in camera block in the proper location and rotation.  The photo is hyperlinked to the insert so you can quickly view the photo.

Well done, Terry.

Justin, you can simply link vector objects to external images, by means of _ATTACHURL command.
I realize that their automatic insertion by GPS info (embedded in the EXIF tag) would be great, but surely not for free...
