How to use date time stamp change.

Postby rsimpson36@gmail.com » Sat Oct 31, 2020 8:31 pm

I seem to be missing something or I am getting too old to do this. I want to change date and time stamp on photo files to use with Photoshop elements. I want to set a fixed Month/Day/Year and have the time change by 5 min starting at 01:01:00 AM. I seem to be to stupid to make this happen. I have read your sheets on this and it does not help. I must be missing something. Please help before I pull out what hair I have left.

The fixed part you can do simply by selecting 'Fixed' in the 'Change File Timestamps' dialog.

I don't think that you can set an incremental minute amount, though?

Oops.

This is in the BRC (Bulk Rename Command) section.
Did you mean to post here (or BRU) ?

-------

For a GUI, if BRU cannot do it, Nirsoft's BulkFileChanger can.

Select your files
F6 to bring up the dialog
Set your starting date/time
Select, Add -> 5 minutes
Select, Date/time sequence mode
Do it.

(Test ahead to make sure you understand what's happening.)

Greetings. For commandline solution, the exiftool.exe also conducts like your explanation...
Code: Select all
exiftool -overwrite_original -ext jpg -FileCreateDate="1999:01:30 01:01:00" -execute -FileCreateDate+"<0:${FileSequence;m/(.*)/;$_=$1*5}" -common_args "FolderName"
Its to make all jpegs in "FolderName" to have FileCreateDates like ...
1999:01:30 01:01:00
1999:01:30 01:06:00
1999:01:30 01:11:00
1999:01:30 01:16:00
....
The exiftool.exe also lets you conduct many other dates like FileModifyDate, Exif:DateTimeOriginal, etc.
