Captured time changing to current Time
« on: October 12, 2010, 01:34:47 PM »
Don't know if this is happened in the past, but when I go to apply IPTC pad to an image, it sets the time to current time, even though it IPTC pad is set to capture time.  Any ideas on how to keep it at Capture time??

Please try the 4.6.6 beta version available in the Announcements section of the forums.  Let me know if the problem persists.

From what dialog and what does 'Shift-I' do?

Sorry that was my bad, it is the (shift+commend+I)(Apply IPTC Stationary Pad to Photos).  Also if I use the copy and paste buttons in the IPTC Info screen

  I have tried to recreate your problem on my Macs and so far everything is working as it should. I'm suspecting you have the IPTC/XMP preferences set to the Date option for the IPTC Info dialog. This setting is called IPTC Info Date and Time uses :  and is located at the bottom left of the IPTC/XMP preference page. If you set this menu to Capture Time, then the IPTC Info dialogs will display the Capture Time and Date in gray text.

  If you don't want to change the Capture Time and Date when applying the Stationary Pad, then un-check the Date apply box in the Stationary Pad before you apply it to the selected images. This will prevent PM from updating the Capture Time and Date no matter what the Date option is set to in the Stationary Pad. I hope this helps. Please send me more info on how you are able to recreate this problem if it's still present on your Mac.

regards,

--Bob
