Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Correct capture time, part of Cleaning Up Your Mess in Lightroom Classic CC.
- [Voiceover] In some cases you might be…looking for a photographic image based on the date…or time that it had been captured,…or you might be curious about…what date or time an image had been captured,…and so you might look at the metadata…to retrieve that information, but of course,…that means that you want the date and time…of capture to be accurate.…That in turn means that you'll want to…make sure that when you're capturing images,…the date and time are set accurately,…and of course for most of us the most common issue…is that we cross time zones and forget…to change the time on our cameras.…
Let's take a look, this image for example…was obviously captured at night,…so I'll scroll down on the right panel…in the library module in Lightroom…and take a look at the metadata section…and the first date and time I come across…shows a time of just after 11am, but don't be fooled,…this is not the time of capture.…This first date is just the metadata date.…In other words, when was the last time…that the metadata for this image was updated?…
