Restore image timestamp

I’m taking lots of pictures with my digital camera. I often batch process them and I have noticed that some of my older images have gotten their timestamp updated at the timeĀ  when this happened. As luck has it, the original timestamp is stored in the EXIF data of the picture, and restoring it is simple.

 

Begin by installing the jhead package:

sudo apt-get install jhead

 

To show the EXIF data of an image:

jhead image.jpg

 

To reset the original timestamp stored in the EXIF data of an image:

jhead -ft image.jpg
