Arrgh! Vacation pic dates off by a year!

We just returned from a one-week trip to Costa Rica. I just realized that I set the date in our K-X to 2010, rather than 2011. So the dates are off by a year.

Can anyone recommend a utility that would allow me to easily change the dates?

To complicate matters, I synced the camera time with my GPS so I can geo-tag my pics. So I need to preserve the time the picture was taken, and just change the date.

Grr.

If you or someone you know have Windows Vista then you should be able to change your photos time/date stamp: Change the date and time a picture was taken

P.S. This will NOT work on Windows XP since you would need Windows Photo Gallery which is part of Vista.

Hope this helps, Good Luck

If you are using PhotoShop there is a command to change a date by a set amount for one or a group of photos.

I haven't used ExifTool yet (it's installed recently); will have a look at it when the need arises

Wow! Thanks for all the quick responses and choices! Looks like it's not as dire as I was thinking it might be. I've got a Windows 7 install, so I can go that route, and/or do it in Photoshop.

Thanks a million everyone!
