App to change "Capture Time" on images?

Post by Robert Pei » Sat, 25 Aug 2007 09:22:19

I have a number of images I got from my daughter before she discovered
she needed to set the date in her camera. They show totally ridiculous
dates and I would like to correct them. Is there an app to do this?

Somebody told me Graphic Converter could do this, but I haven't figured
out how.

To correct the EXIF timestamps with Graphic Converter:

- Drag the folder containing the images onto GC to view them in a
'browse' window.

- In the GC browse window, double-click one of the photos to open it,
and click the "i" button at the bottom of the photo window to open the
Information window. Select the EXIF tab. Look at the EXIF date & time,
decide what they should be, and calculate the difference. Close the
photo.

- Select all the photos in the browse window (command-A), and
control-click or right-click on one of them. In the contextual menu,
choose JPEG -> Shift the EXIF timestamp. Type in how many years,
months, and days should be added or subtracted. Click Okay, and all the
photos will have their EXIF dates shifted by that amount.

The date and time are likely embedded within the image. That's why you
need an image editor such as Graphic Converter to manually edit the
pixels of each image to remove or modify the pixels of the date and
time.

Unless the OP is talking about the date stored in the EXIF data which
can be edited with the freeware application "Reveal" obtainable through
VersionTracker.

Another alternative that I've found handy (though I'm a big fan of GC)
is a freeware context menu plugin called PhotoTool.

Hmm. Just noticed it's still not a UB, but if you've got a PPC machine
this is a nice addition.

Yes, good point. I guess without more information, we'll never know!

Great idea. I actually have a copy of that but I never tried to use it.

There are two dates. One is called Capture Date or something like that.
iPhoto won't display it (as far as I can tell) so you can't change it.

Not quite. The displayed date is what appears as Created date in
Finder. If I change that, the date in Finder does not seem to get
changed, but the Modified date gets changed to today. I have no idea
what Reveal is changing, but it doesn't seem to be the Creation date, or
what I called Capture date in another post.

It changes the date in the EXIF data, a block of date that is usually
generated by the camera and contained as part of the image data. The
dates you referred to are maintained by the file system.

GraphicConverter can display the full EXIF data block and there are
routines that can "marry" an image to GPS a track (using the time of the
track and the time of exposure) to augment the EXIF data with latitude
and longitude values.

If you want to change the dates of the files on the volume, you need to
change the file attributes with a utility such as ABFA:
