Description Jean-François Fortin Tam 2007-07-23 18:49:16 UTC
...not only f-spot's DB date :)

There is absolutely no tool that I know of (for the linux desktop) for adjusting the EXIF date of shots taken with a misconfigured camera.

If you know of one that I could use in the meantime, please tell me!

adust date _do_ change Exif if you enable 'Write Metadata to File' in the prefernce dialog.
Comment 2 Steven Brown 2007-07-23 20:01:02 UTC
For photos that you have already modified, just modify them again by one minute or something, after enabling 'Write Metadata to File'.
Comment 3 Jean-François Fortin Tam 2007-07-23 20:20:27 UTC
thank you folks, I was not aware this feature was available :)

... now, it doesn't allow renaming the files according to that new exif date, by any chance? (the whole idea was that I want to avoid those PICT4325.JPG filenames)

Hey Jeff, I actually wanted to do the same thing.

jhead should do what you want.  Once you install it, try the following command in a directory containing all the photos in question:

jhead -nf%Y-%m-%d--%H-%M-%S *.jpg
