    Hi,

    While reviewing all my photos from the summer, i realized that all of their dates said x/x/2005, instead of 2006. I checked my camera, and sure enough my settings were wrong. Now I want to change all of their dates to 2006. I know how to do a batch change, but it seems like this will make them all uniform. I want them to maintain their month and day information, but just change everything to 2006.

    any ideas?

    Is the date in the filename or the EXIF data?

    um i guess the EXIF data (whatever that means), the filename seems random. I know how to change the date to individual photos, or change many photos to the same date. I need to push a lot of photos a year into the future.

    I assume you are viewing the photos in iPhoto and they are displaying the wrong date, in that case this tool will do the job, can't work out whether its for Windows or Mac though.

    hmm i appreciate the link and the help, but that seems way to complicated for what i'm trying to do. anyone know of a simpler solution? maybe within iphoto?
