I needed to coordinate photos from three cameras with three different clock settings - one was correct, one an hour ahead, and one 2 hours ahead. I used similar code, but many pictures failed to update with a "Maker offsets" warning. The FixBase => '' option fixed that, and below is the code:

use strict; use warnings; use Image::ExifTool; chdir("C:/Users/hbm/pictures/trip") or die("Unable to chdir: $!"); my $tool = Image::ExifTool->new(); $tool -> Options(FixBase => ''); # "best guess" for fixing Make +r offsets for my $jpg (glob("*.JPG")) { $tool -> ExtractInfo($jpg); my $camera = $tool->GetValue("Model"); next if $camera =~ /KODAK/i; my $shift = ($camera =~ /SD1200/i) ? "2:00" : "1:00"; $tool -> SetNewValue(DateTimeOriginal => $shift, Shift => -1); my $success = $tool->WriteInfo($jpg); print "$jpg Update failed: ", $tool->GetValue('Error'), "\n" if +!$success; }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
