Add a date to a JPG in Lightroom

If you import JPG files or other images in Lightroom which haven’t been captured by a camera or lost EXIF and other timestamp data, you can add a capture time this way:

  1. Go to grid view
  2. Select one or more image thumbs
  3. Choose Metadata > Edit capture time…
    (there is also the option to automatically use the date when the file was created)

  1. As a kid I always hated it when someone sitched on the date function in a digital camera and every single picture had a yellow date on it. 😉
    Nevertheless the function in Lightroom comes in very useful from time to time.
