Wrong date on ingest variables
« on: August 22, 2019, 05:43:40 PM »
Hi There

These variables have worked great for ingest since I've used PM. Just over the past couple of weeks, I have had unexpected results with wrong dates. My system Date & Time are correct and I can't track down what else would be causing this?

Thanks

{iyr2} comes from the IPTC Date.  Do your photos already have IPTC date values?  Otherwise I'd suggest using {year2} to get the capture date year which should always be available.
