ShootShifter helps to redate and rename photos based on the EXIF or filesystem dates. With the preview timeline it's quite easy, for example, to synchronize several folders of images that were taken with different camera dates.
What's New
Version 3.7.1:
  • [IMPORTANT] Found possible issue with "Individual Files Import" (Advanced Preferences, OS X 10.9): Adding locations for individual files import USING DRAG AND DROP is not reliable anymore! The result can be wrong file access permissions, which would prevent changes in "partial folders". Please re-add your locations using the file dialog sheet ("+"-button)! Sorry for the inconvenience!
  • [Fix] Some photos with an unusual date format could crash the app on import. (Thanks for the sample file ... That was very helpful!)
  • [Fix] Fixed issue with the menu bar in fullscreen mode.

(Almost) Perfect and absolutely necessary for every digital photographer.

I only have one feature request that would make it perfect. The "Save" button is disabled unless the user selects a timeshift. In my case, I simply want to change the "date modified" to the "date created" without any timeshift. The preferences do allow this but it is effectively not possible in one go. I had to shift +1 second in the first step and -1 second in the second step.

But again, great work!

If only this app would rename jpg files to their date and time… I really don't understand why there is counter after date if there could be HH.mm.ss or HHmmss. That would make this tool for me perfect. Now I still have to use some other software to rename photos to their EXIF date and time. (For example, 20050701_184621.jpg)

Please look inside the preferences: On the "Imagenames"-tab it is possible to customize the existing rename-tamplates or even add completely new ones.
This way its possible to get your desired names: just drag and reorder the elements the way you want to.

This app is great! I use it get the time/date right when I make panoramas. Just drag the finished panorama JPG next to the last source photo and presto.

I would like to see it able to handle individual photos, however. I'm now trying to match up a series of photos from one camera that (for some reason) wasn't recording EXIF and interleave them with pics from two other cameras. I essentially had to put each no-EXIF picture in its own folder so I could get them all lined up individually. Luckily Folder Splitter (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/23175/folder-splitter) does just that.

Thanks to the dev for this one!

Does what it says.

Too bad it only does folders of images, I'd love to be able to drag a group of images (i.e. a subset of a folder) to the app for renaming/processing.

Further, I'd love to see the ability to sort images processed into subfolders by date or other criteria.

But these requests aside, a nice app and the price is right.

shootShifter is an excellent tool! I had a few hundred pictures taken in a different time zone and shootShifter shifted the time for me in no time! Excellent utility!

If only it would re-date the movies' Finder information as well...

Hmm.., doesn't work with Leopard. It displays the folder name but not the JPGs inside. No thumbs, no option to edit though. : (

I wanted to erase all Exif-data (or at least set the date to some 2012 year or so..

At the moment shootShifter only uses the EXIF-creationdate ("date and time of original data generation") as the EXIF-datesource.
Images that only have an EXIF-modificationdate ("file date and time") are treated like images without EXIF-tag. And these are ignored with the default settings.
You can try the option "use finderdate as datesource" in the Preferences instead. But it will only change the finderdates and not the EXIF-modificationdate of these images.

The next beta should improve this ... i hope to have it ready soon.

I've exported a load of photos from 2002 to watch on the Wii Photo Channel and naturally everything has been dated the day of export and i'd like to re-date them to accordance of year. Can ShootShifter modify the image date? Thanks!

Try it, and tell me ... :-)
At the moment I just know of problems with certain images (with included XMP-data) using Leopard.
With these images the changes are not saved and you get an error message instead.

I hope to have a new beta ready next week, which should also significantly improve the workflow.
