Since moving to the Mac, one of the things I’ve missed is a way to easily update the EXIF date for my digital photos. Photoshop won’t let me do it, nor will the Finder. If you think this isn’t a big deal, consider these problems:

  • Ever forget to set the time on your camera?
  • Have you modified photos and then find that iPhoto shows the out of order?
  • Do you have software that doesn’t read EXIF date but you want to sort by the date the picture was taken?

If you said yes to any of these, the you need A Better Finder Attributes. This software provides a number of different ways to update your files that Finder should have had. You can even set the changes you want to make and create a ‘droplet’ so you can just drag the files to the app and have them updated automatically.

Of course, there’s much more to it than changing EXIF date and file dates. You can modify a good number of attributes that normally require you to create some pretty ugly terminal command lines.

Plus, the developer is quite responsive to support requests.
