Changing date/time of photo

Before going on holiday I synchronised my cameras dates and times.

On the second day our cruise neighbour was saying what date it was and horror my camera date was wrong, so I changed it.

But ... ... ... I was right and so I had to change it back at the end of the day. Therefore half my shots on the 10th July were marked 11th July.

After downloading a program to change the dates and then trying to do it through Photo Gallery (which works, but only changes the date in Explorer - it is not transferred to Lightroom). I found this:

In Lightroom Library Module. Click on the Metadata tab, scroll down to Edit Capture Time, click on the calendar and that's it. You can do one or a batch. Too Easy Peasy.

I bet you all knew about it didn't you?

Way to go Audrey - I had no idea

I have hundreds of photos with the wrong date (I blame review cameras being sent to me with the wrong date se )
