EXIF data overrides
Authored by: reinventedpei on Jan 09, '02 01:33:05PM

I had the same problem: EXIF data with the wrong date (my camera's date was off by a year) meaning that the data in iPhoto was equally wrong. Solution? Just open open the JPEG in a good text editor (I had the benefit of using UltraEdit on a Windows machine, which is just such a thing; I'm sure there are Mac equivlants) and modify the date by hand -- it's quite easy to pick out the dates, as they're right at the beginning of the file in plain text. Use caution, of course, as you don't want to otherwise adversely affect the JPEG. Worked like a dream for me. I never did find an EXIF editor -- plenty of EXIF extractors, but not editors.

Perhaps Graphic Converter can edit EXIF data? Worth a look as it can do almost anything else regarding graphic formats... I'm at work in front of a Windoze box, so I can't check it out at the moment.
