comment Batch Convert BMP to PNG & keep original created/modified dates
@jiggunjer Thank you for that suggestion. I'm using the IrfanView solution described below as it's the simplest. Your powershell solution might be useful in future since these images were previously zipped, and unzipping them reset their creation date, but not their modified date, which is the actual original creation timestamp. I will see how google photos sorts these and if it's not correct I will use your solution to overwrite their dates, thanks again.

@JensMundhenke This was the simplest & most effective method to do what I asked. I'm glad I learned of this feature.

@jiggunjer I appreciate the time you've spent trying to find a solution. I can't manually edit the dates because they are about 800 over many years.

I don't know how that can help, these are just .bmp screenshots, I don't think they have any EXIF data.

Sorry I should be more specific then, I used an external tool to convert the bmp to png, but I need a tool that can do these conversions and maintain other data. It's not especially a google photos problem since I did not use google photos to convert them.
