    I *think* jhead might be of assistance in this kind of task. If you have the time, check out jhead.

    I *think* that I need a date/time stamp editor that will let me scroll through and select the desired alterations. I would like this to work on any kind of file or even a folder.

    Thanks for the suggestions though.

    Yes, in the repository. Not particularly useful for my needs. Thanks though.
    Why not?
    Data stamping: You can write any combination of exif or iptc tags (date, time, aperture, shutter speed, … or other info) automatically on a collection of images.

    Re jhead I guess you will be back to scripting to do what you want. Not my area unfortunately!

    Phatch will edit the metadata, not the file date/time stamp. Jhead, another photo "editor", will change a jpg file date/time stamp. However, one must use jhead a terminal command and then type in the time/date. I would like an easier to use GUI.

    Thanks Zill.

    See: http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/ideatorrent/idea/23505 where others also think a Nautilus control over time and date is a good idea.

    If you are dead-set on finding a gui solution and aren't averse to installing KDE apps, KRename has a plugin which can change access and/or modification date and time on a selection of files. I use an older (4.03) version, so I assume recent versions maintain this plugin. The Krusader file manager also integrates/ uses KRename for its mult-rename function.
