Hmm - Yes, but I cant see how to shift it by 37,336 hours - that method only seem to adjust the time +/- 24 hours.
See the note under step 3 of the help:
If more than one photo is selected in the Grid view, Lightroom changes the capture time for the active photo by the specified adjustment. (The active photo is previewed in the Edit Capture Time dialog box.) Other photos in the selection are adjusted by the same amount of time. If more than one photo is selected in the Filmstrip in Loupe, Compare, or Survey view, the capture time is changed only on the active photo.
John, Thanks for your help with this.
I'm obviously missing something.
Exactly how do I specify a time amount of 37,336 hours?
1. Select all the images, making sure the first image is "most selected" (the one with 14/01/2012 15:00).
2. Do Metadata > Edit Capture Time.
3. Select Adjust To A Specified Date And Time.
4. In Correct Time, enter the desired date/time: 18/04/2016 07:00.
5. Click Change All.
The first picture will be adjusted by the number of hours between the correct time and most-selected photo's current time. All the other photos will be adjusted by the same amount of time.
Oh oh - I see....
Many thanks for your help.
Great, glad you got it figured out.
Ive used this method many times before because though my cameras are all synced, there can be 1 or two other photographers working with me and I can count on there camera's clocks never being even close to the real time. Most times if I remember while on location I'll have us take shots of each other simultaneously as a time base to correct all the other images.
Problem is, its no longer working?! I'll select all the images that need adjustment and "Most Select" the datum image, set "Adjust to a specified date and time" I notice at the top of the action window, where your screen shot says "Modify the capture time stored in the selected photos" mine still says its changing this one "Most Selected" Images. and when it runs thats all thats done.
I double checked and there are 418 images selected and the images shown in the dialog box is the Most Selected.
Am I just getting old and missing something?
