BUG: In new version, IPTC Date/Time Taken has changed and is creating problems.

Post by BuckSkin »

Always before, in IPTC Editor, I use "EXIF date/time taken (if exists)" and always the product was two lines in descending numeric Military time = "Created date 20230422" and "Created time 195337"

This never was a problem and always stayed as written through various programs.

Now, with the new version, using the exact same settings, I am getting a single line "Created date 22-Apr-2023 07:56 PM"

When I edit a photo in another program, the saved result ends up corrupted like so "Created date 22-Apr-2" and that is all I get, forcing me to reenter the Date/Time Taken in the IPTC Editor.

I much prefer the format of the old style and the old style did not get corrupted in other programs.

Can this be fixed ?

Thanks.
