|Summary||0002120: Batch EXIF Date Change not working|
|Description||Hi, 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 https://www.geosetter.de/mantis/view.php?id=1295 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.|
