Newbie: Batch change EXIF-date to file date

#1

Hello everybody,
I am new to MetaImage. I already crawled the forum but did not quite find the right answer. I got a lot of digital images with no EXIF-data at all but the file creation date almost fits the date, when the picture was taken.

How can I use the file creation date to create the EXIF-dates (batch)?

Many thanks in advance,
Michael

Hello,

Unfortunately, the application is only able to copy Exif dates to File dates. The inverse operation is not possible for the moment. The next update will add an option to dot it.

At this time, the only solution is to use ExifTool (https://exiftool.org) with the following command line:

ExifTool "-Exif:DateTimeOriginal<File:FileCreateDate" your_image_name
