    Date filter not reading dates correctly

    dkosiur Community Member

      I've noticed that since Bridge CS5 came out, the filter on date is not working correctly. For example,I'm looking at a series of images that I captured today (Sept 7th), and the date shown in the metadata panel of Bridge ays "Today". Yet, the Filter pane shows only "yesterday", not "today" as an option. When I click on "yesterday", Bridge displays the files that I took today! (And for the record, I'm using Bridge on Sept 7th, at 6 PM Pacific time when I'm posting this.)

          I've noticed that since Bridge CS5 came out, the filter on date is not working

          correctly.

           

           

          Don't experience this behavior on my system, works as expected. Can you

          specify which date are viewing, date created or date modified or both?

           

          And can you provide a screenshot of what you are seeing including the

          metadata panel content panel and filter panel?

           

          Have you already tried a purge cache for selection (choose the file you are

          looking at and with right mouse click choose purge cache for selection)

            Ok, here's a screenshot from today. As you can see, the date on my computer is Sept. 9th, and the Date Created and Date Modified in the Metadata panel says "Today". (The photo was taken today, Sept. 9th.) But if you look at the Filter Panel in the lower left, I've not been given a choice of "Today" but had to click "Yesterday" to see this,and other photos taken on the 9th.)

             

            Sorry, hope you can read the details...

              Sorry, hope you can read the details...

               

               

              Thanks, screenshot is clear, I see it but can't believe my eyes I'm

              afraid....

               

              Tried to reproduce it on my system but can't achieve this, pictures shot at

              same day as 'today' give today in the filter panel and yesterday also

              correctly filtered.

               

              You have of course already checked the date and time of your camera?

               

              But that should reflect also the data in the EXIF shown under file

              properties in the Metadata section.

               

              Assuming you have already tried to reset the Bridge Preferences (holding

              down option key while restarting Bridge) you could also repeat this after

              having manual deleted the AdobeBridge4.plist file from the preference folder

              in the User library.

               

              If still no luck, a way to narrow the possibilities down is if you have CS4

              still installed you could try it in Bridge CS4 with the same files.

               

              If it shows correct in CS4 it might be related to your CS5 install  or to

              NEF from D200 and Bridge CS5.

               

              If it shows also incorrect in CS4 it might be related with your User account

              or OSX.

                I no longer have Bridge CS4 installed, so I cannot try your suggestion (yet -- I could try it on another computer soon).

                 

                I tried everything else you suggested, Omar, and nothing changed.

                      I should also have mentioned that this only happens with one of my 3 cameras,

                      the Olympus EP-2. Images from both the Leica DLUX-4 and Nikon D200 do not show

                      this behavior.

                       

                      Then there lies probably your answer, it is due to Olympus Exif. Wether it

                      has wrong exif or Adobe does not correspond with it I don't know but since

                      others files do have no problem it is almost certain the EP-2 I'm afraid.

                       

                      Best go is to dive into Google for other stories or try the the contact

                      button at the top of this forum page to open a case with Adobe Tech Support

                      and find also tech support for your Olympus.

                        I edited out that comment about the EP-2 .ORF files. If you go back and look at the screenshot I posted earlier, you'll see that the example I gave was for NEF files from my D200. So it is NOT camera specific.

                          Sorry for that, have been away some time and respond using email so did not

                          see the whole thread...

                           

                           

                          Still puzzled and can't reproduce this behavior on my system. For the sake

                          of experiment you could try to create a new user account just for testing

                          and see if this is giving same behavior.

                           

                          I agree it is still a wild shot (but then again also a wild problem...) and

                          it will tell if the current user account is the problem or not

                            I just upgraded to CS5 yesterday on two of our machines here and it looks like we're having similar problems - both machines. Could be a time zone thing? We're in New Zealand.

                             

                            Check this out:

                            The first Today is today, the second yesterday, and the yesterday is the day before. Very confusing.

                              Does anyone have any clues on this? I use this feature a lot... I'm tempted to go back to CS4 until it's resolved.

                                I'm having the same issue in my Bridge CS5.  CS5 displays modified date of files I worked on today as "yesterday." 

                                 

                                I do not have the issue looking at the same files/folder in Bridge CS3. (CS3 displays correct modified date)

                                  Come on Adobe - how hard would this be to fix???
