Wrong year for the past 18 days

When I got my Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Elph, I thought everything was perfect. I was wrong. There’s nothing physically wrong, but from January 5th until today, I had the camera set to 2006 instead of 2007.

What the freak.

At least I caught it before a few months went by. I manually changed all the affected photos on Flickr, but what about the 200+ photos on my hard drive?

So, I ask you – how do I change the “Date Picture Taken” in mass quantities? (I’m using Windows XP.)

Quote from Toy Story 2 – my weird way of saying thanks in advance if you can help me out…

UPDATE: January 28, 2007 @ 10:40am – I emailed Amit at Photojojo, and he replied really quick. Solution? Jhead! It’s really small, and runs only in command prompt. I just copied it into each of the affected folders, used the -ds extension, then set the correct date in each of the affected folders. Thanks a ton, Amit!
