Hi guys,

I am using the exif.wdx64 plugin for TC, I'm wondering if there is any possible way to edit the .EXIF DateOriginal, .EXIF Date, .EXIF DateDigitized with total commander?

I have looked at File > Change Attributes.. but that doesn't allow the plugin information to be changed!


Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

Cheers!

Just search at the forum for "DateOriginal" and you get the answer ...

Nothing in such a search seems to point to anything that can enable changing the EXIF metadata - only to change the file attributes or rename the files according to the EXIF information, but not the other way around, changing the file itself.

I think you need something like ExifTool ( https://sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/ ) for that, maybe combined with a TC plugin like ExifToolWDX ( https://totalcmd.net/plugring/ExifToolWDX.html ) or a TC tool like TCMetadataViewer ( https://totalcmd.net/plugring/TCMetadataViewer.html )

Yay! Homework!

I've tried the ExifTool by Phil Harvey will little to no success. Will try it again.
I'm using the 64bit so I can only use the follow of the two links: https://totalcmd.net/plugring/ExifToolWDX.html
Am i right or am i wrong?

You should also be able to use TCMetadataViewer - it is an exe-file, not a plugin, so the bitness doesn't matter.

But whether the plugin or the tool can help you I don't know - I haven't tried them myself.

I think i have https://totalcmd.net/plugring/ExifToolWDX.html working but i cannot actually use it to change the exif dates.. it simply allows the user to see more fields of information. but i cannot see how to change any of those values.

if does allow those fields to be changed, how do i do it?

---------------------------------------------------------------------

I think I've got the TCMetadataViewer plug-in half installed..
I've got the "TCMetadataViewer.ini" finding the exiftool(-k).exe (yay!)

but i have an error saying:
Irfanview not found in configured path



The manual says something about irfranview being optional.. Im going to have to keep diggin.

I know you are trying to use TC to do what you're wanting to do, Jimmy, but I've never succeeded.
Good luck in your quest.

In the meantime:
1. If you happen to have the ageing gem, the dusty diamond, Windows Live Photo Gallery, it can change jpeg files' exif data directly - absolute changes or relative.
1a. It's still installable in Win10 via Compatibility/Troubleshooting, but only if you have the monolithic setup exe, rather than the stub that used to pull down the installation files online in realtime.
1b. And it can add exif data to jpegs without any; a rare capability. (Just change a file's Date Taken by one second.)

2. ExifToolGUI, together with exiftool works very well too. It's a B-List program, so be careful where you get it from.
2a. ETG is an odd GUI, so play around and check what you are doing, but in the end, it's usable.

Good luck, Sir James.

Hey Phred,

Which of the programs you recommend can do change many exif dates all at the same time?


Where can I get the version of Windows Live Photo Gallery you suggest?
And
ExifToolGUI sounds good too, any suggestions on a clean download?

Thanks

I have made this button for you:

Code:
TOTALCMD#BAR#DATA
%COMMANDER_PATH%\Tools\ExifTool\exiftool.exe
-k -P -overwrite_original -charset filename=UTF8 -AllDates<FileModifyDate -ext JPG -@ %UL
%COMMANDER_PATH%\Tools\ExifTool\exiftool.exe
Set all EXIF dates to current file date (write date)


-1


1. download https://sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/exiftool-10.75.zip and unpack exiftool(-k).exe to %COMMANDER_PATH\Tools\ExifTool\ and rename it to exiftool.exe.
2. Mark all of the green code above (including the -1 in the bottom) and copy it to the ClipBoard (Ctrl+C)
3. Right click on TC's button bar and choose "Paste"

You now have a button that will change the EXIF dates of all the files selected in the active file panel to Windows's file date (write date).
If you mark directories, then they will be scanned one level deep for JPG files which will ALL be changed - so be carefull with marking directories unintentionally.
If you want to process other file types than JPG then remove the parameter: -ext JPG

James, both those programs can change multiple jpg files at once, en mass. WLPG, bless its aging heart, can slide the dates/times one way of the other - if, say, you hadn't adjusted your camera for daylight saving - or a selected set can be changed to the same date/time.
ExifToolGUI similarly.

As for a download - I had a good link once, but can't find it at the moment.
https://windows-live-photo-gallery.soft32.com/free-download/?dm=1
This, at 131 MB, could be it, but I don't want to try it on this machine in case it destroys the existing installation. You might like to try it.

There's a few links that look alright for ExifToolGUI; a bit of homework for you. (Rushing here.)

Try genius petermad's button and see if that does what you want. Otherwise report back here and we'll pursue the project.

Good luck with your account problems. I don't get notifications at Gmail nor Yahoo, spam/junk or not. Trouble at mill. Sad

The WDX plugin needs to support writing to the tag also.

The plugin JPG comment (https://totalcmd.net/plugring/iptcwdx.html) has that capability.

From there the path was already tried:

File > Change Attributes
Choose "change plugin attributes"

Plugin: jpg-comment
Property: DateTimeOriginal
Value: [=tc.creationdate] (example - you can give hardcoded date also)

Is this what is desired?

You can use XNViewMP. It has EXIF date changing capabilities, to current time, by absolute date/time or by offset of any readable date/time. Also has preview of the new date/time values. Works on single or multiple selected files at once.

jpg-comment also works on multiple files at once.
Use:
File> Change Attributes
