Windows XP utility for setting file date / time to when-taken in EXIF data?

    Are there any free and simple utilities that can:

    * Read EXIF data of one or multiple files for the date and time a .jpg
    image was taken

    * Set the Windows file date / time to this time-picture-taken

    * Work in individual or batch mode, with a graphical user interface or
    from a command line

    * Not modify the EXIF data or the file in any way other than setting
    the date and time

    * Be a simple utility for this and not a "kitchen sink" with many
    other features such as extracting EXIF fields, unless those features
    can easily be ignored

    * Runs under Windows XP

    Thanks!

    Dilip,

    Take a look at PIE - Picture Information Extractor

    http://www.picmeta.com

    Not free, and no command-line, but it does much of what you need and more,
    such as lossless JPEG image rotation.

    Cheers,
    David

    Sounds like a perfect job for a Python script... I don't have the
    time to write it for you, though :)

    There's a good EXIF module with some example code available over
    here:

    Dilip,

    I recently tried a few and finally picked Jhead from
    http://www.sentex.net/~mwandel/jhead/.

    It doesn't have a graphical interface, but I don't think I'll
    ever miss that. jhead -h outputs the help, so no problem there.
