Hi. I had a camera setup with the wrong year (2029 versus 2019) for a couple of years now. In my favor, this digital camera is a Leica without a display, so I rarely look at anything, clearly neither do I look at the metadata when I import.

The rest of the date fields (day and month) are OK.I'd like to ONLY change the year. On everything that I looked into, I did not a find a way to do this. Otherwise I have to do it in as many batches as days of shooting I had in the last two years. Any suggestions?

Thanks SO much. Martin.

Select all the images and choose 'Metadata - Edit Capture Time'. Select 'Adjust to a specific date and time' and only change the year. As you can read at the top, that will change the year of all selected images by the same amount as the first image (the one shown in the preview box).

Thanks SO much! I did not realize changing only the year was an option. Really appreciate it... m.
