Select all the images that are showing up with the wrong time data in the EXIF “Image Date” field then select the “Metadata” menu and then the “Batch Change” option (or Shift+Command+B). Click the “Adjust Time Zone” radio button and then select your camera’s time zone from the top drop-down and then select the actual time zone where the photos were taken in the second drop-down.
Then just press the OK button. That’s it, all the selected images will have their date and time data modified to reflect the actual date/time the photo was taken … rather than what time it was “back home”.
It should be noted that this “time warp” can be performed during the import process by selecting the time zone drop-downs on the right hand side of the screen. The above tip is for those of us that forget to check that option on import.
Until next time,
