Sorry, but I can't open the file, because it is NOT written for PPC-Macs, so not for mine …

Excellent.
It wasn't compatible with FileVault.
Marc (developer) selflessly helped me to solve it, so please DONATE. He deserves it.

The official EXIFtool installer indicates that it places the binary in /usr/bin not /usr/local/bin:

http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/install.html#OSX

I use EXIFtool as installed by MacPorts, so my copy is located in /opt/local/bin .

Will SetEXIFData work with that out of the box, or do I need to make a symbolic link in /usr/local/bin to the actual binary?

after installing the contained EXIFTOOL, I start the app SetEXIFData but only get the message "Could not find a valid EXIFtool installation." although I can access the exiftool in terminal... what's wrong?

Same to me.
But I just notice, thanks to Odysseus, that GraphicConverter does it as well.

You probably didn't read the text at the bottom of the original folder.

When opening the "SetEXIFData "folder" you'll see 4 icons. Below them it reads " To install, double click the ExifTool dmg file and run the installer ..." You haven't installed the extension tool, therefore it couldn't be found.

Just my guess...

I did the same thing the first try. Then I statred wondering about all the "stuff" in the original dmg. ;-)

This little app is a lot lighter than GraphicConverter and a lot cheaper too!

No, it really doesn't Curt.
I installed from DMG and dragged EXIFTOOL to AppFolder.
Opened App and drag a photo (JPG) in the EXIFTOOL window (or on the App itself) and photo is listed there, but as soon as I try to select it a message is alway shown:
"An exception of class NilObjectException was not handled. The application most shot down" and quit. ???

Should be solved now. It looks for existing installations in /usr/local/bin too.

Excellent. This is the first piece of software that I've been able to find that will allow me to set EXIF dates for images that I have scanned. And the fact that I can add EXIF dates to a batch of images is great. I'll be making a donation. Well done!

I guess I don't get the concept. What means "set not edit"? Can't you see what was the EXIF data and just can set new data? I mean if there is an EXIF date and you want to change it - isn't that possible??

Sorry, to ask but it's not clear to me.

Seems to do what it says, though if you want to do more than 1 batch would be helpful if it didn't auto-quit.

Aso the set creation date deosn't work.

There is a difference between the creation date you see in the Finder (which is a Finder creation date, not an EXIF date) and the EXIF key 'Creation Date'.

Which 'creation date' do you mean?
