Hi all,
it seems like that one of my two cameras had wrong time zone and the timestamps are now one hour later of what they should be.
How I can remove one hour for all the files of this camera. The camera I can pick from the serial number but how I can change for all photos the time stamps with the same offset?

Thanks
Alex

Select the images that have the wrong time after expanding all stacks related to those images. then in the Metadata menu select "Edit Capture Time...". this will give you a pop up box. In that box click the middle radio button labeled "Shift by set number of hours (time zone adjust)" and then select the desired number of hours (plus or minus) on the right side of the "New Time" section of that dialog box. it will show you the current and new time for the first image. This is assuming that it is just the hour that needs changing and not the minutes or seconds as well.

If you need to adjust by something other than a set number of full hours click the top button mislabled "Adjust to a specific date and time" I say mislabeled as that is not what it does. What it does is it looks at the first selected image and determines the difference in time between what is currently on the image and what you specify in the dialog box. It then adjusts each selected image by that difference. In other words it adjusts the first image to the specified date/time and then applies that same offset to all the other images.
