Changing DateTimeOriginal with nconvert

Post by brajaq » Sat May 16, 2015 2:37 pm


I use nconvert for indexing pictures, mainly with -iptc_set nnn value. This works well except for DateTimeOrginal (#36867) or CreateDate (36868):

E:\Photos\Picasa\2015\2015-04\20E12F~1>"c:\Program Files\XnView\XnView\nconvert.exe" -iptc_set 36868 "2015:03:03 12:12:12" -overwrite DSC00435.JPG

The value seems unchanged. Is this a syntax problem or something else ?
