How to add EXIF date from file-date

Discussion in 'UK Photography' started by Lars-Erik Østerud, Feb 18, 2008.

  1. I have a huge amount JPG photos WITHOUT EXIF date indo.
    But it seens like the PS3 only uses EXIF date for sorting.

    Så all images without EXIF date ends up in the current
    year and month (like "FEB 2008" or "2008") when sorting.

    I have the original date in the files "date modified",
    but need a program then can create the EXIF date info
    from the file-date. But I can only find the opposite :-(

    Anyone know how to copy the file-date to the EXIF date
    for several >1000 JPG files in an easy way? Please?

    Apparently jhead will do it, and it's free (I've not tried it).

    Here are the command options

    and here are the downloads
