    I'm embarrassed to ask this chicken-**** question in such a high-powered forum...

    Am getting a show together using pix taken with a Canon point & shoot. I loaded them into a thumb drive, which will be plugged into somebody's laptop at
    the venue. I noticed 3 pix with shooting dates that are not correct. IOW, what's on the pix happened at a LATER date. Dunno how this could be, but...

    If I move them down, it will **** up my Detail, which lists them by shooting date.

    Bottom line: Is there a way to change shooting date?

    No...I thought not...just asking...

    Any other solution...

    ....(holding breath)

  2. Shooting date??
    Everything is changeable.

    Do you mean:
    1) the red date in pixels that is often shown in the bottom
    right of a picture?
    2) the date embedded in image properties?
    3) the date embedded in exif info?
    4) the date file created on the computer o/s?
    5) something else?

    Give them names that incorporate the (corrected) date and list them by name.
    Or you can delve into the world of metadata; and if it turns out you can't
    modify the date, there are many other fields you could use to sort on. If you
    go the metadata route, Irfanview will help you do it.

    But if time is short, use the filename. Any editor will let you modify that.

    iPhoto allows date change. If iPhoto allows it I would imagine other
    software allows it.

    You may be right. But "imagine" is the operative word in that sentence.

    Tx, but I don't understand. Would this apply to photos already in the camera?
    Or must they have been taken via Iphoto? I looked it up & it's only for Mac.
    I have PC.
