Batch JPEG Date Changer v1.02 Released

We are pleased to announce the immediate release of Batch JPEG Date Changer v1.02.

In this update when that occurs, the Creation Date will be used as the EXIF Date. To highlight this, the background of the EXIF Date will show up as Grey. When the Change Now button is pressed, the suggested EXIF Date will be added to the Photo.
