applescript Exiftool Help
I am trying to write an AppleScript to make some changes to EXIF data using Phil Harvey's EXIFTool.
I am an rather new to AppleScript.
My goal is a script that will read the Date/Time Original Tag, subtract 1 hour from the time, then write that data to the GPSTimeStamp tag
Here is the script I am having problems with
set theFolder to choose folder with prompt "choose target folder for GPS Modification"
local the_file, File_Name, the_cmd
set the_file to POSIX path of theFolder
set the_file to choose file
set the_file to POSIX path of the_file
set the_cmd to "exiftool -GPSTimeStamp='2009:05:15 16:02:07Z' GR04944.NEF"
do shell script the_cmd
I get file not found error
if I set the_cmd just to "exiftool" I get the exiftool info docs
I know the exiftool -GPSTimeStamp='2009:05:15 16:02:07Z' GR04944.NEF
is correct as if I issue it from within Terminal I get "1 image file updated"

I don't have exiftool, so I can't test your script but I think your error is the blank "open" line. From what you've provided, I don't think it's needed. (In fact, the first four lines might not be needed.)
TIP: You can gang the Posix path line with the choose file line:
set the_file to POSIX Path of (choose file)
What looks large from a distance, close up ain't never that big.
