    Hi.
    When I scan my old film negativs I change the computers clock to the time that I took the photos. It is working fine so far but on my Windows I can only change the clock as far as 1988.. Now when I getting to my older photos I got a problem.. I have tryed severel meta changing programs but none of them can change the original created date. Is their anyone that no how to do this?

    Best regards

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    ACDSee will set the file creation date/time.
    The file creation and modification date/time maintained by the file system may be reset if you save the file. If you can find a way to fit it into your workflow you ought to consider using the date/time embedded in the Exif metadata. That will normally be carried forward through edits.
