I read about an update an update to the Uploadr tool from Flickr. In the past, this tool has been cumbersome and inefficient. However, this new tool is working very well for me so far. I just pointed it at an external drive and it’s working well so far. It is possible to view photos by date uploaded or by date taken which extracts the exif information from the photo.
Unfortunately, I used some terrible photo editing tools in the past and in many photos, that information is wiped.
So now I’m on the hunt for a good tool that can batch update exif date information. So far, apart from a couple of command line options, I haven’t found anything.
The photos are all uploaded to private mode so only you will see them. If your computer or backup option goes wrong, this is one option that can help.
This page explains the tool and how it works in more detail.
