Default EXIF Editing

I have friend who failed to set the date on her camera. Now she has 230 photos with the internal date taken of 1/1/1980.

Does anyone know of a utility that will to a batch reset of the EXIF date on JPGs?

Bob--

What platform? If it's Mac OSX, then I can recommend the freeware PhotoInfo, which lets you batch-repair EXIF data, including dates. (I did the exact same thing on my camera).

You can find PhotoInfo at Versiontracker.com; and if your friend is a Win user, I suppose you could search versiontracker with "edit EXIF".

The most powerful one, I believe, and what I use, is Phil Harvey's ExifTool.

It's a Perl program, so it'll run on any machine that has Perl installed. (But for Windows and Mac there are even a stand-alone executables that don't require Perl!) Not for those who are afraid of the command line, but it will find and allow to edit a lot of information other tools don't even see.

The page also lists a whole bunch of related tools.
