When we transfer photos from the camera to the computer, some software changes the date the photo was created. The date created is not the shooting date, but the date saved to the computer. Obviously, this is not what we want, it is very difficult to organize the photos on the computer. But we can't change this creation date on the computer now. Is there any solution to change the created date of photo on mac?
We can view the create date of the photo on mac by Finder. When you choose a photo in Finder, use "Command + I" keyboard or right click menu "Get Info" to view the created date. And you can view the real date of the photo by Preview.app. When you open a photo with Preview.app, access menu item Tools -> Show Inspector -> Select Exif tab, it will display a lot of photo information: such as Date Time Digitized, camera model, pixel dimention and more.
As we known, there is no way to edit or change the reate date with Mac OS X system app. To change the created date of photo on Mac, we need to download the third-party app to do it. Here we recommend Photo Exifer, it allows to view, edit photo date, GPS data and other meta data of photo. And it also support to read photos and videos from iPhone device or camera.
First download Photo Exifer on your computer.
