Title: How can I change the EXIF dates embedded in an image?
Post by: David Anderson on July 25, 2006, 02:42:35 PM
I will soon be embarking on a big batch rename exercise for about 5000 legacy digital images and want to include the date the picture was taken in the new filename. One of the EXIF Date/time metadata fields embedded in the image would normally be the source for this date, however some of my images have no EXIF dates and others have the wrong EXIF dates (camera setup error). Are there any reliable tools to embed a new EXIF date in the image? I have a mixture of CRW, CR2 and JPG files.

I've had a sniff at Exifutils but the user guide seems to suggest that these date/time fields are not editable. Is this true?

Peter,
Everything I struggle with seems to be handled by iView! I can't stand the DAM pressure any longer so I've just downloaded it for evaluation.

If you are on PC, idImager may also do what you need.
