Read and write meta information in files. More information: https://exiftool.org.

  • Remove all EXIF metadata from the given files:

exiftool -All= {{file1 file2 ...}}

  • Move the date at which all photos in a directory were taken 1 hour forward:

exiftool "-AllDates+=0:0:0 1:0:0" {{path/to/directory}}

  • Move the date at which all JPEG photos in the current directory were taken 1 day and 2 hours backward:

exiftool "-AllDates-=0:0:1 2:0:0" -ext jpg

  • Only change the DateTimeOriginal field subtracting 1.5 hours, without keeping backups:

exiftool -DateTimeOriginal-=1.5 -overwrite_original

exiftool '-filename<DateTimeOriginal' -d %Y-%m-%d_%H-%M-%S%%lc.%%e {{path/to/directory}} -r -ext jpg
