arrange photos by acquisition date

Post by antoniog5356 »

Is it possible to arrange the photos by the creation date (and then to display the creation date)?
Actually, it seems that the program arrange the photos by the last modified date and not by the creation date.

Hello antonio65356, welcome to the forum. Unfortunately DVDPS4 can auto-arrange only by file name or modified date (ascending or descending). For a possible workaround I'd recommend a small freeware program called "Attribute Changer" which can be downloaded here:

Using your right-click context menu ("change attributes") you can easily change the "modified date" to whatever you want without effecting other embedded file data or the file name itself. When you re-sort in DVDPS4 everything should now appear in the desired order.

Re displaying the date, you can use the "Add Description" feature to manually enter text. If you have multiple photos with the same date you can apply the description text in bulk to a group of selected photos which might save a little time.
