How to Adjust the Date and Time of a Photo in Picasa

Have you ever taken picture with your camera only to find out that the date and time are incorrect? This usually happens when your camera’s battery is completely drained and the camera is unused for a long period of time. What really stinks about this situation is that you’ve already taken the pictures with the wrong date and importing them to your computer places the pictures in the wrong location chronologically, messing up any opportunity of viewing and sorting the images chronologically. To remedy this, Picasa allows you to adjust the date and time of pictures on your computer.

To learn how to correct the wrong date and timestamp on your pictures, follow the instructions below.

Software/Hardware used: Picasa 3.8 running on Mac OS 10.6. The same instructions apply to the Windows version of Picasa.
