  • How to batch update modified date (.jpg/.txt) after date taken?

    In Windows Explorer (or Explorer Replacement, such as Directory Opus) and searching/sorting dates based on modified date, this date does not correspond with the actual EXIF 'Date Taken'.
    When files are sorted as per modified date, this may often be confusing.

    I very much prefer to use the files' modified date be in line with the date taken.

    Now, it is a piece of cake to change all the modified dates after date taken, that is to say, .. outside ... ACDSee, i.e. using Opus.
    As such action is outside ACDSee, most probably the ACDSee database will then be corrupted(??), so I have not tried this out.

    Question:
    I would like to have ACDSee batch update both the JPG and explaining .txt line be dated as per shooting date.

    How to proceed?


    Thanks!

    LATER
    I managed to batch update all, everything is okay now... except for the existing .txt files
    those files have the same name as the .jpg files with extension .txt
    Have not been using ACDSee for a while: assume these files are created by ACDSee, but frankly speaking,
    I forgot how...ahum


    Using Photo Studio Pro 2020

    If you open up one of those text files, what are the contents ?

      See above screenshot.

      It says:
      Headline...: filename-blah blah (excl. extension)
      Create Date: EXIF date.


      nothing more.

        I had hoped the area greyed out in your screen shot gave some indication as to what the parent program was, because I'm not aware of anything like that produced by ACDSee.
