I have some files that are named like mmddyy_hhmm.jpg. I would like to automatically set their "Date Taken" attribute in the EXIF information based on their file names. Does anyone know of a way to do it using Windows?
If you know your way around PowerShell, you could write a small script to loop through all your files and then use jhead to update the date Exif field. Use
-ts<time> Set the Exif internal time to <time>. <time> is in the format yyyy:mm:dd-hh:mm:ss
So in PowerShell you would have to convert your date 'mmddyy_hhmm' to 'yyyy:mm:dd-hh:mm:ss'
