Photo Metadata Editing???

My friend took some pictures with his new camera--some night time shots of the moon, etc. But in looking them over his metadata is wrong since he set his camera's internal clock incorrectly. He has now changed the camera, but would like to change the metadata on the shots from 11:10 AM to 11:10 PM. Is there a software utility that allows one to change this metadata on individual shots?

The free program PhotoMe should do it.

I doubt that this program exists, but what I found myself needing after our vacation was a program that would edit EXIF files from three different cameras to get the clocks in sync. The problem was that my wife's camera was set for a different time zone and also a few minutes off from mine. It made integrating and sorting our photos a pain.

Lightroom and Photoshop might be able to do it also. If you have it.

I have CS3, but I don't see a function to do what I am talking about--which is to adjust all times by 6 hours and 5 minutes. That requires time calculations. I don't want to manually edit each time stamp.

FWIW, in ACDSee, this is definitely doable. The batch adjust time stamp function has the ability to shift all dates/times by a given amount. It also lets you select the correct date & time for the first picture in the batch and it will automatically calculate and apply the necessary offset for the rest.
