trying to rename pic with adding the capture time
« on: April 17, 2020, 05:29:14 AM »
Hi,
Try to rename pics with adding capture time to it. I can see the capture time is 30 dec 2019  ( 8.08 pm) (similar for the original time).
In the PM I set the preference metadata  (IPTC) info date and times as using capture time.
But my date {datesort} is constantly giving me  2020010. These example pics were taken with iPhone 11.
Anyone has an idea what I am doing wrong? I have spent quite a bit of time reading links for this issue. In Lightroom etc....but unfortunately I don't get it right..  Thx.   Jaap

Could you share one of your images?  Use the 'Attachments and other options' link when you're composing your reply to this message and there you'll be able to upload your image.

We don't have full EXIF support for HEIC files yet.  I expect that the time is from the file modification time.

Hi Kirk,
Yes, most likely it's the modification date. In this example it's only a difference of 2 days but in some cases when I don't copy iPhone HEIC files to my LR database directly it can be a difference of 1 month or more, which is not good.
Looking forward when PM is able to extract capture data from HEIC format.
Best, Jaap
