Changing File Date on Windows and Mac

Setting the wrong file date can get messy. There are times particularly for photos when we have to replace batteries on our digital cameras and having the camera reset the date and time to some default time in the past. Digital cameras typically do not come with a real time clock built into it and would hold charge enough between battery changes but if you do take the batteries out to charge overnight or to have them taken out because you would not use the camera for several weeks, you will find that the file date get reseted. So each time that happens, we will have to manually set the date and time all over again.

Batch JPEG Date Changer v1.05 Released

We are pleased to announce the immediate release of Batch JPEG Date Changer v1.05.

This update includes the following

  • Support for PNG Images
  • Support for MOV and MP4 Movies
  • Now prompts if you want it to display the folder after processing

We included the MOV and MP4 movies support as they are amongst the more common videos format supported by digital cameras and if the photos from that session requires date changes, it is inevitably the movies taken would also need to reflect that change. MOV and MP4 currently do not support EXIF headers but they have their proprietary metadata.

PNG Images do not currently support EXIF headers and as such only the Creation and Modification Date can be changed.

Batch JPEG Date Changer v1.04 Released

We are pleased to announce the immediate release of Batch JPEG Date Changer v1.04.

In this update, we included the option to change date via the “Incremental Date Changer Settings”. This effectively let you set a start date and time and have all subsequent photos files’ date and time increment via a fixed interval either by seconds or minutes. You have the option set vary the interval.
