Vista: Change Date Taken of Image Files

Posted January 9, 2007 by Hack_Vista in Microsoft Vista

You want to categorize your photos by date but the date stamps on the image files are wrong. What to do? Finally, in Vista, this is easy to change. Here is how to do it.


When using Flickr or Picasa, I love arranging by date. However, frequently my pictures do not have the correct date stamp. Changing the date stamp in XP requires extra software.

In Vista you can change this date easily:

1. Click Start
2. Open the Windows Photo Gallery
3. Select the photo or photos you want to change
4. Right-click on one of the selected photos
5. Click Properties
6. Select the Details tab
7. Click the Date taken box and edit the date
8. Click OK
