Great software, well thought out. Thx I'll be donating soon when I've had a chance to test drive all the features.

I transferred 5k plus photos from wife's iPhone6s using the free EaseUS Mobimover, easiest way I found to get your data off an iOS device yet. However, it changed all three dates , Created, Modified and Accessed to the date of the transfer 3/12/18.....

Was able to add the Exif date taken apply it to the filename. Fabulous, thx again. Iphone has two locations Camera Roll and Photostream, so there are overlaps of image numbers.

Looking at the Timestamp in Users Guide, it appears that I can change one or more of the three C/M/A dates to the Exif taken date. However, I can't seem to change any of the dates, or as a noob can't figure out the pattern.

Is there a sample of how to do this somewhere?

TIA
Chuck

I think I solved my problem. Might want to add/explain this in the Timestamp info/guide.

I could not see the new date Created using Timestamp. I had to right click on the column and check the show New Created column.

After running the test batch, it did change the date to the Exif create date.

Fab program.

Thx
Chuck

PS - Donation made.........

I would add a suggestion, as also pointed out in Gizmo's review.

The ability to deselect all files as they are auto checked when added. It is clunky having to add or delete from the list of the files in the list you do not want to rename or modify.

However, I do understand this would also add a layer in the batch process routine to use only those selected versus all files in the list.

Does right-click Mark or Selected meet that requirement? :)
