Preserve timestamps when copying from FAT to HFS+
Authored by: deef on Oct 29, '09 09:30:25AM

I wish I'd read this before I brought 3 GB of files accumulated over 10 weeks in South Africa this summer....

Any suggestions for a way to change existing file dates / times on OS X en masse?

Change file names or EXIF times

EXIFRenamer is a free utility that can change the dates of a batch of photos to a user-specified version of the EXIF creation date. It cannot change the EXIF data.

ShootShifter and A Better Finder Attributes claim to be able to change EXIF data. I haven't used them, so I cannot say how well they work. Search VersionTracker for "EXIF" to find other possibilities.

If you're using iPhoto, you can batch correct the time in a number of photos at once (eg if grouped by location, and therefore by TZ).

Photo menu, Adjust Date & Time...

I normally use it for re-sequencing images shot from different cameras with slightly different times.
