Date/Timeshift FORWARD and WITHOUT backup files?
« on: February 04, 2012, 05:02:27 AM »
The docs shows on how to modify all dates of a couple of hours backwards of a set of photos backwards. e.g.

exiftool -AllDates-=5 D:\myphot

But how do I ADD e.g. 3 hours onto the current time?

How do I prevent the creating of
*_original
file backups in the command above?

Hi Peter,

To add 3 hours, use -alldates+=3

To avoid the "_original" backups, add -overwrite_original to the command.

...where DIR is the name of a directory/folder containing the images.  On Mac/Linux, use single quotes (') instead of double quotes (") around arguments containing a dollar sign ($).
