Have you been in a situation when you replaced the camera batteries and forgot to change the camera clock to the current date and time or set the wrong date or time like when you wanted to take photos and videos in the new year and set it to the year before ? Happily taking the photos and when you go back and checked, all the dates and or time are wrong. Arrgh! I’ve been there several times.
There are applications out there which let you batch change all the file dates to a single date time which would not make much sense. Moreover, those only change the creation and modification date but the Digitized Date and Time in the EXIF header remains unchanged. The EXIF Date is important when uploading to the web especially one of the many cloud based photo storage services.
This app supports JPEG and HEIC Photos and supports Date Change for EXIF, Creation and Modification Dates as far back as 1970.
The Batch processing will let you perform the date change to one or more photos at one go.
CM Batch JPEG Date Changer supports Backup of the Original Photos.
This application provides different ways to change the dates.
1) You can set all dates and times to be the same (if you want) or just change the date and leave the time as they are.
2) You can also use the Date Maths feature which lets you Add or Subtract Days, Months, Years, Hours and/or Minutes from the current photo dates. And Now you can use the Incremental Date Settings to generate incremental date and time.
3) You can sync all the dates to either the Creation, Modification or EXIF Date.
4) You can also change each photo date and time individually.
The choice is really yours to make depending on the situation.
CM Batch JPEG Date Changer requires a two-step process which firstly let you review the changes to the dates before applying them. So as not to make yet another boo boo which could ruin the day. Once you are happy with the changes, click the Change Now button and let the application do its magic.
The images will not be modified in any ways, it is only the file creation, modification and EXIF dates and times will be changed.
All you have to do is
Step 1 – Loading the List
There are three ways to add files to the list, by using the Load Files, Load Folders or by just dragging and dropping the file list into the file listing.
Step 2 (Optional) – Select Photos on the List
You can now select one or more files within the list to change the dates to.
Step 3 – Make the Necessary Date Changes
To individually change each photo dates, click on the file name and make the changes with the “This Photo Properties” tab and click Update Date On List.
To do batch changes, use the “All Photos Properties” tab. You have the option of using the Fixed Date, Variable Date or Incremental Date change option. Remember to click the “Update All on List” to enable the changes in the file listing.
To only change those photos which has been selected, use the “Update Selected on List” button.
Or if you just want to sync all the dates, use either one of the buttons below.
Step 4 – Review the Dates
Check to see if the dates shows in the file listing are as you require them. If not, repeat step 2. The Dates will be changed based on what is in the File Listing.
Step 5 – Change Now
Once you are satisfied with the dates, click the Change Now and let the magic happen.
