ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Re: Batch SET Original Date/Time
« Last post by Daan van Rooijen on 2021-03-05 09:49:28 »
Thanks Bernie! Interesting approach, I had not heard of RSP before (I guess the 'dominant' solution for mass-editing metadata is still Exiftool with its cryptic commandline interface).

Hi,

It looks like I didn't thank you for your suggestion.
Done now  ;)

Hi,
For those who may interested, I managed doing a mass fix on files.

After setting Camera>Date/Time using MetaData editor (Set if Blank / Original Date/Time / \i:File date;)

I used RSP (Replace Studio Pro) tool from Funduc.com to achieve a Search and Replace in png files using following regular expression:
Search string: exif:DateTimeOriginal="??/??/????T*"
Replace by string : exif:DateTimeOriginal="%5%6%7%8-%3%4-%1%2T%9"

Afterward I simply selected again using ThumbsPlus and invoked a set to Exif date/time. :)

Hope this may help as this let clearly understand that stored date/time matter.

BTW: I searched a way to achieve similar using Python but fail to found  interesting
base sample script to manipulate  MetaData.

regards

Hi,

Thanks,

Regarding your question:
Quote
That's strange. Are you sure that it is setting the time stamp to the Metadata Date and not simply to the current system time? (which of course would also be wrong, but might have a different cause)
Yes, I selected "Set to XMP/EXIF date/time created" in "Modify File Info"

Regarding:

Does this also happen when you work with JPG files instead of PNG?

Not tested at time of posting because I started first doing this with old screenshots all are in png!

I make a test which gave interesting results:
When I save as jpg an existing png (with Camera>Original = 2020/06/15T10:46:39Z) the resulting jpg didn't retain that Metadata and prevent me doing a test.

I did manually add camera>Original Date/Time to that jpg file. Data was grabbed (Copy/paste) from above (2020/06/15T10:46:39Z) and I noticed that this not worked as expected!

I tested again adding camera>Original Date/Time to that jpg but replaced "/" by "-" and "T" by space (2020-06-15 10:46:39Z). Testing now "Set to XMP/EXIF date/time created" well worked!

Therefore, I understand that

I Have define following to set meta data from file date:
Set if Blank / Original Date/Time / \i:File date;
Set if Blank / Creation Date (xmp) / \i:File date;
Set if Blank / Modification date / \i:File date;
assigned values using the \i:file instruction are stored in a format they can't be reused later using date time (because of use "/" separator )

Maybe bring it to the attention of tech support..: http://www.thumbsplus.com/support.html

I will do as per suggested.

General Discussion / Where is everyone?

I have not seen anything in a long time from anyone from ThumbsPlus.  The latest news I see on the website is from 11 December 2019.  Also, I have not received any emails from anyone in a long time.  Does anyone know what is going on with the company?

Thanks.

P.S.  I do hope everyone is doing well these days.

ISSUE is that this also define a Metadata Date as the current date/time.

That, as such, seems correct. The Metadata Date is simply the last time that the metadata was edited.

When I later use the "Modify File Info" > Set to XMP/EXIF date-time

The File Date-time is set to a "metadata Date" and not the "Camera>Original Date/Time" previously defined!

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Batch SET Original Date/Time
« Last post by Bernie on 2021-02-25 09:35:41 »
Hi,

I'm trying to set Camera > Original Date/Time using Batch Editor so that being able to set later on (after editing image)
the file info as original date/Time.

I'm this is for either old images with no EXIF at all) or also for screenshots. (.png files)

I Have define following to set meta data from file date:
Set if Blank / Original Date/Time / \i:File date;
Set if Blank / Creation Date (xmp) / \i:File date;
Set if Blank / Modification date / \i:File date;

Script well works :
if File Date is: 15/06/2020 10:38:17.203
Result is as expected  (see attachment).

ISSUE is that this also define a Metadata Date as the current date/time.

When I later use the "Modify File Info" > Set to XMP/EXIF date-time

The File Date-time is set to a "metadata Date" and not the "Camera>Original Date/Time" previously defined!

Any Idea?
Regards

Does Ctrl-F5 (refresh tree) help, and does Windows' own Explorer show the drive when TP doesn't? Have you thumbnailed at least one file that's on the drive?
