Re: Clarification of problem

Chris I think you've misundstood Amy's problem. She forgot to set the camera date originally so it put it's default date in the EXIF info. There's nothing wrong here with PhotoLoader or the camera.

Amy - unless you can edit somehow the tags in the image, I think that's the way it will stay. You could also just rename the files to have names that match the date you actually took them.

Hello Again Amy. Sorry I miss understood your first post. Could it be
the Version of Photoloader you are using. Maybe you have a older
version. The Version I have is 1.0.4E . If you have an older version
maybe you could download a newer version OR I could send you the version
I have if you don't have it.

I think the Photoloader software gets its Date and Time info from the
EXIF Data that is stored with each photo. If you have the same
Photoloader version as me it could be a problem with your camera when it
records the EXIF info. I use a program called IrfanView to view the EXIF
Info.

I personally don't use the Photoloader software much. I normally just
use Windows Explorer and drag the Photos from the Camera to my Hard
Drive. I use the Photoloader with my old laptop computer that does not
have USB. I don't seem to have the same problems as you.

Talk to you soon

Chris

I'm not referring to anything that directly appears on the IMAGE. I am
trying to change the additional information (like shutterspeed, or
f-stop, or resolution, or date) that Photoloader somehow puts into the
HTML filing mess that appears on my harddrive after uploading from the
camera.

Because the date info is wrong, the viewer that comes with Photoloader
displays all of these pictures in the month of January. I've tried
editing folder names and the HTML text portions of files associated with
the errant month, and then using the Rebuild option in the Photoloader
software, but I haven't been able to hit the right combination of
actions to make it appear correctly.

Has anyone figured out what key piece of info does the viewer use to
determine which month a photo is a part of?

Are there any other pieces of software I might consider that will help
me download and organize my images but still keep the extra photographic
info?

Thanks.
