    Hello Dukat, You asked about taking the "meta data date created", which in ACDSee is IPTC Date Created. which does not necessarily equal Exif Date/Time Original, and have that date added as the file creation date. I recommend you take the Exif Date/Time Original and add that value as the file creation date.

    The OP's requirement was to simply change the Windows File Created timestamp to match the Exif date/time original using ACDSee's Batch Adjust Timestamps function. That particular option does not change any Exif timestamps.

    There is the option in the Batch Adjust Timestamps function to change any or all of Exif date/time original, Exif date/time digitized, Exif date/time.

    Using ACDSee's Batch Adjust Timestamps to change Exif timestamps on a ex camera JPG results in the following changes (using ExifTool v12.41 as a reference)

    Changing the Exif date/time original changes the ExifIFD Date/Time original, the XMP-exif Date/Time Original and the XMP-photoshop Date Created

    Changing the Exif date/time digitized changes the ExifIFD Create Date and the XMP-xmp Create Date

    Changing the Exif date/time changes the ExifIFD0 Modify Date and the XMP-xmp Modify Date

    ACDSee displays Exif Date/Time Original, but not Exif CreateDate or Exif ModifyDate. For a date to be recognized as the 'Date Taken' or 'Capture Date' in most photo applications, a minimum of 2 Exif date fields must have the same date, but with ACDsee, it's not possible to verify that. I plan to test what metadata fields are changes if a date is edited using ACDsee.

    The following is based on using ACDSee Ultimate 2022, but should also work in the Pro version.

    In Manage mode,

    (a) In the left pane, in the Folders tab, use the quick select icons in conjunction with the Ctrl Key to group select the parent folder and its child folders.

    (b) Use Ctrl +A to select all of the images
    (c) Select Batch\Adjust time stamp
    (d) Select "File creation Date and Time" then click on "Next"
    (e) For Choose new time stamp select " Use different date and time", then from the pull down Select date and time menu, select Exif date/time original
    (f) Click on.Adjust Time Stamp

    Note that it will only change the time if the individual files have an Exif date\time original recognized by ACDSee..
    Perfect, thank you very much!

    started a topic Batch Adjust Time Stamp

    Batch Adjust Time Stamp

    Hello,

    Is there any way to use the Batch Adjust Time Stamp feature that takes the meta data 'date created' value and sets the file creation date equal to that value and have it do that to all photos in sub folders?

    I can apply it to files in a folder but doesn't seem to be a way to do sub folders as well.

    Thank you
Working...
