Modify EXIF date and comments

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Luke, Melbourne, Australia, Feb 13, 2004.

  1. Hello,

    I have about 8000 pictures and slides (JPEG) that are dating back
    before the era of the digital camera. They are all scanned and have a
    name like "1963-11-05 001"(Date and sequence number). The more modern
    pictures can have a name as "1999-05-03 20-15-37" (Date and time).
    As these pictures do not have any EXIF data I would like to use a
    program that can substract the information out of the filename and put
    this into the "original date" EXIF field.
    Does anybody knows of the existence of such a program? Do these
    program handle batches as well? Can I add some comments into the EXIF?
    I have tried programs such as PixLabs, EXIFUtil, etc. Most of these
    programs are too complicated or not user friendly (read tedious and
    slow), or do not handle batches. If I have to do them one at a time it
    will be a loooong job.
    Thank you very much for your input.
