Returned to the U.S. from 2 weeks in Korea with a lot of pics. I didn't remember to adjust for the time difference in Korea, so - should be no problem, just tell On1 to do it - but it doesn't work quite right. Here's the issue; you can right-click and apply a time zone differential to change the time on a selected batch of photos - so far, so good. Korea is 14 hours ahead of central time zone in the U.S. You can only add a max of plus or minus 12 hours when you adjust the time zone. So, to correct the time, rather than add 14 hours one has to subtract 10. Doing this to a batch of photos will give you the right time, but the date will be wrong. No problem, right, just adjust the date separately - but you can't do this to a batch of pics cause it will now take the time of the super-selected photo and set that as the time for all of the photos. So if you try to adjust the date for a batch of photos you will now have the correct date but the wrong time on every one except for the super-selected one.
Frustrating. The only fix I have found is to adjust the time on a batch of photos, then you have to select each one individually to adjust the date - not too practical when you have hundreds of photos to adjust! The problem could be solved with an easy fix; simply allow the time to be adjusted by up to 23 hours both forward and backwards and adjust the date correspondingly. This is only a problem when you are traveling half-way around the world and crossing the international date line - but it does happen, lots of folks do it. I probably have other software that will do the adjustment correctly, but On1 ought to be able to handle this simple task.
