Summary0002120: Batch EXIF Date Change not working
DescriptionHi, I love your program thanks so much! If I can get this working happy to make a donation as well!

I have a large number of photos I am trying to clean up the EXIF dates for. I have read the instructions thoroughly, and looked for answers online. I saw a similar issue here and followed the steps you have in the help GeoSetter Workflows | Edit Data | Edit Data of Multiple Images.

Basically, I am able to bulk change the Geo location without a problem from either the template or by a selection. But when I try to do the same with dates, it only works on the first image of the group and the rest do not change. I will provide a link to a video in the additional information and steps on some test photos. If you can let me know if this is a bug or if there is something else I need to do here would be much appreciated!

This seems to be a bug. I can reproduce this behaviour.

If you are familiar with the Windows command line, the date changes could be done with ExifTool.

To set each date and time to 01.01.2021 12:00:00, the command would look like this:
exiftool.exe -overwrite_original -AllDates="2021:01:01 12:00:00" *.jpg

I know this is only a workaround, but perhaps it helps.

Got it, yea that will be a tricky prospect with all the photos and folders I have to deal with. Any chance this is something you think you can resolve? If not think BulkFileChanger is the next best option. Thanks for looking into this!

I'm sorry, but I'm not the developper of GeoSetter, so I can't fix it :-)

Download the Exif Tool and additionally Exiftool GUI. Then you can also change the date or other Exif entries really comfortable in batch mode.
