ShootShifter helps to redate and rename photos based on the EXIF or filesystem dates. With the preview timeline its quite easy for example to synchronize several folders of images that were taken with differing camera dates.

ShootShifter presents photos (and now movies, too) in chronological order on a graphical timeline. Date changes can then be applied with several tools to individual photos or even complete folders of images. E.g. its possible to directly enter new dates, or to simply drag the images around on the timeline, etc.

One of the cameras was set to a wrong date? The time was off? No problem!

With the new fullscreen preview and 100% loupe its possible to get a great overview over the images and to already here get rid of the least successful ones.
At the end the images can be renamed with standardized filenames using the user-configurable naming templates.

And when all dates are corrected this can still be a very useful tool to quickly present images in fullscreen mode. *I* use nothing else anymore! :-)

What's New in Version 4.6.2

• Bugfixes:
- Fixed issue that could result in degraded timeline scroll performance.
- Fixed possible scrolling issue after the thumb date-picker was used.
- Fixed issue in which the main window could be moved by dragging the upper pixel rows of the timeline.
- Fixed possible crash when entering fullscreen mode on OS X.8.
- And more smaller tweaks.

Really great app

Works wonders! Two wedding shooters with multiple cameras - their clocks set different - this program made it possible to get the images back in exact sequence. It works with RAW! You can’t imagine how much time this saved me. Thanks much for a great app.

Better than the main photo apps!!!

This tool is amazing. The developer clearly knew what he and we needed and made this task of merging photos from different cameras easy. I really feel I know what is going to happen to all my different timestamps. No black magic that leaves me wondering which timestamps get updated and which don’t. This beats the big and expensive professional photo applications from Adobe and the like in this regard! This is my new workflow going forward.

Did the impossible!

I had an issue where the Date Created and the EXIF Date Digitized how gone oout of synch. I wanted to use Hazel to categorize 30,000+ photos into date driven subfolders based on the Date Created field. I needed to copy Date Digitized into Date Created. ShootShifter did it and then renamed the photos to boot. Great app, saved me so much time and fantastic suport. I had a question and the dev got back to me in 45 mins. Thank you!
