|Summary||0002022: Feature Request: edit Taken Date by using another date information in the file|
|Description||Sometimes the Taken Date information in an image file is <blank>; for example images downloaded from mobile phones. This is annoying because many picture viewer applications use the Taken Date to sort the images; when this data is not available, other date information is used and this can mean that images appear in the wrong place in the timeline.|
The Date tab of the Edit dialog box allows the Taken Date to be set to a fixed date (user defined) or be adjusted forward / backward by a fixed offset (user defined). The feature proposal is to include additional options for setting the Taken Date field.
This would be useful when a user is making a mass update of image files taken from the same device because the issue will be consistent; ie they will have the same missing / available data.
The additional options would be:
- set Taken Date to be equal to Created Date
- set Taken Date to be equal to Modified Date
The function should copy both the date and time information to the Taken Date field.
Note: the Edit tool already allows the Date Created to be set equal to the Taken Date... this proposal is to use the same process in reverse.
Note: an additional option would be to allow the Date Created to be set equal to the Modified Date.
