Mapollage can help you do just that by creating KML files based on your geotagged photos so that you can upload them to Google Maps quickly and conveniently.
It is worth mentioning that this application requires Java Runtime Environment to be installed on your computer so that it can run accordingly.

After doing so, you can set the source path, choose a file pattern, toggle subdirectory support, include photos without coordinates and create the KML output file.
Aside from its KML generating capabilities, this application also lets you create paths between your pictures that you can spit by hours, days, weeks, months or years, place pins instead of photos on the map and adjust photograph-related settings such as maximum width and height.
It is also possible to include timestamps in your files by enabling the option from the "Placemark" category, switch between customized and static details of your images, as well as assign paths into your file reference fields that can include URLs.
