Backup old photos

Feb 09, 2020

Import old images with wrong dates to Mac Photos app.

You will need awesome commandline program called jhead. It can set EXIF “create date” to file system timestamp. You can do it in bulk with this command:

ls -d */ | xargs -I {} bash -c "./jhead -ft '{}'*"

It will do it for every photo in every subdirectory in current folder.
