Set File Date from EXIF Header Date
I know I'm going to need to remember this some day:
This sets the modification (and possibly creation, depending on OS/FS versions) dates of a given photo to the EXIF
Date/Time header. So, if you have an EXIF header like this (via
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
You can use the above command to set the
File date to match the date/time that the photo was taken, rather than when it was copied to the computer. This is super helpful when trying to look through photos from multiple cameras in order by date taken. Even better is to sync up all of the EXIF dates to adjust for different camera settings. For the mac, ShootShifter (free) is fantastic for this.
