Quote from: Mario on October 23, 2017, 07:05:18 PM...Problem is, always, EXIF has no time zone information. This is always a nuisance and one of the many reasons why EXIF should have been abandoned in favor of XMP 10 years ago. But the camera vendors are cheap and keep their 20 year old EXIF write code running even in the newest camera models.ExifTool and IMatch use the local time zone when mapping between EXIF and XMP, unless you have configured a dedicated time zone in Edit > Preferences > Metadata 2 (read the help to make sure you understand what this setting means). I have written a lot about this in the help.

Quote from: Mario on October 24, 2017, 06:43:04 PMI cannot tell why Gimp or PS change this date and time. Gimp is a mainly Linux image editor and I have no idea about how and which metadata it supports.CS3 is old. ...

This maps EXIF into XMP.Now you change the EXIF timestamps. This causes a re-import, again mapping EXIF into XMP.Now you change the file in CS or GIMP. Which messes up one of the timestamp (CreateDate) for some reason.Changing a file in an external application causes a re-import into IMatch, mapping EXIF to XMP again.
Quote from: Mario on October 25, 2017, 08:48:39 AMI have no idea. I tried your sample file yesterday already and I could shift the date and time without problems, even multiple times.
