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, HEIC, PNG, TIFF, ARW and SR2 (Sony RAW), CR2 & CR3 (Canon RAW v2 & v3), DNG (Adobe RAW), MEF (Mamiya RAW), MRW (Minolta RAW), NEF (Nikon RAW), NRW (Nikon RAW), ORF (Olympus RAW), PEF (Pentax RAW), RAF (Fujifilm RAW), RW2 (Panasonic RAW), SRW (Samsung RAW), MPG, MTS, AVI, 3GP, 3G2, MP4, M4V and MOV formats. PNG and MTS does not contain any date tag so only the file creation and modification dates are changed.
The Batch processing will let you perform the date change to one or more photos and videos at one go.
Note : File Date can only go back to 1904 due to the operating system restriction.
This application let you change the date and time different ways.
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 and video date and time individually.
The choice is really yours to make depending on the situation.
Beginning from v2.8.0, we included the powerful Date Rescue module. This fixes situation where you get either no file creation or modification dates either due to a faulty PRAM, the clock battery going flat or some MacOS updates which may cause issues to the dates showing up as — or to December 31st 1969 or some time in the distant future. Date Rescue is here to help. It can use either the EXIF Date, Current Date or a date of your choosing.
CM Batch MMedia Date Changer (previously known as 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.
Now CM Batch MMedia Date Changer includes the option to backup your files.
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 or Videos 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 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.
