Trouble Setting Capture Date and Time
« on: November 14, 2007, 02:23:08 PM »
I'm having trouble setting the capture date/time. If I set the adjust relative setting to zero and the absolute date/time to 1999/01/01 01:00:00, the actual date and time that gets set in the jpg file is 1999/01/21 20:00:00.

Update File Creation Date/time is ticked.

The settings seem pretty straightforward and I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Right now I have to use another piece of software to change the capture date/time but I would like to do it within PM.

Any help would be appreciated?

Thanks, Arnie

What version of Photo Mechanic are you running?  What OS are you running Photo Mechanic on?

Can you send me a sample image that I can test with?  Contact me privately for upload info.  I'd like your before and after sample images.

Thanks,
