Editing a photos capture time

If the clock on your camera was incorrect at the time of capture or your image file does not have a date embedded, you can change the image capture time in Lightroom. Choose the menu command Metadata^Edit Capture Time (see Figure 3-40). You can adjust by specified date and time, shift by set number of hours (time zone adjust) or change to file's creation date, if different than the other dates. The dialog box states that the operation cannot be undone, but you could always change the time again to correct any errors.
