Big picture: I have 90,000 image files dating back to 1998 and I want to "find" all image files with a December creation date.

My hope is there was a program that would read the creation date of each file, extract the month parameter from the Creation Date field and write the month in a custom user-entered file property field.

Any ideas?


  • Have a look at ExifTool (freeware). It is hugely powerful… but also hugely complex. It is the kind of task it should be able to do, but I wouldn't know how to persuade it.
