Batch change year photos were taken

Apr 6, 2013 8:49 AM

I  took a week worth of vacation photos before realizing the wrong year was set in my digital camera.

 

When I open the files in Photoshop, and go to

"File > File info"

the year is  wrong on

 

Description tab: Created field

Audio Date tab: Created Date field

Origin tab: Date Created field

IPTC tab: Date Created field

 

I did File > File Info > changed the year.

When I do the steps one at a time, the year fields are changed properly.

 

I recorded an ACTION that run the same commands.

But when I run the action, the year fields remain unaltered.

 

Whats going on?

    Try in Bridge, you might be able to group select the images and then change the metadata, I haven't tried it with the date taken field before, so I am only guessing it will work.

    You can not change the Date Created in Bridge or Photoshop.  You can change the Date Created in the IPTC field, but it does not change the Date Created field in the EXIF or XMP file read in Bridge, and perhaps other programs.  To change correctly you would need a program like ExifTool.

    You are just re-affirming what I said in post #2.
