Adjusting Time and Date for Photos or Sets of Photos

Mylio has powerful tools to help you keep your photos’ metadata correct and up to date. Mylio has two different ways to alter a photos capture date. First, follow these steps to bring up the Time and Date picker…

  1. Open Mylio and select the photo you wish to alter the date of.
  2. Open the info panel.
  3. Mylio will display the time and date that the photo current is set to. Select this to bring up the time and date picker.

Changing Time and Date can then be done in two ways…

Shift Time and Date

Shifting a photo’s time and date allows you to adjust a set of photos by a certain amount of time. For instance, if you have a set of photos that were taken with your camera’s time set incorrectly, you can shift the entire set of photos by X amount of time. This is done by following these steps…

  1. Select the set of photos you wish to adjust the time and date of.
  2. Set the correct time and date by using the date picker. Month and year can be changed at the top. Date can be chosen by clicking on the desired date. Time can be altered at the top of the window.
  3. Mylio highlights the dates that your photos span in blue.Quick Tip: Sometimes using a keyboard may be faster than using the date picker. In these instances, type in a full date in the year field and Mylio will adjust the date picker for you. Date should be formatted as: YYYY/MM/DD or YY/M/D
  4. Once confirmed, select ‘Shift’ to adjust the time and date for all selected photos.

Set Time and Date

Selecting a photo or set of photos times tells Mylio that your images were taken at a specific time and date. This means all photos will be set to the exact same time and date. This is done by following these steps…

  1. Select the set of photos you wish to adjust the time and date of.
  2. Set the correct time and date by using the date picker. Month and year can be changed at the top. Date can be chosen by clicking on the desired date. Time can be altered at the top of the window.Quick Tip: Sometimes using a keyboard may be faster than using the date picker.
