ShootShifter helps to redate and rename photos based on the EXIF or filesystem dates. With the preview timeline its quite easy for example to synchronize several folders of images that were taken with differing camera dates.

ShootShifter presents photos (and now movies, too) in chronological order on a graphical timeline. Date changes can then be applied with several tools to individual photos or even complete folders of images. E.g. its possible to directly enter new dates, or to simply drag the images around on the timeline, etc.

One of the cameras was set to a wrong date? The time was off? No problem!

With the new fullscreen preview and 100% loupe its possible to get a great overview over the images and to already here get rid of the least successful ones.
At the end the images can be renamed with standardized filenames using the user-configurable naming templates.

And when all dates are corrected this can still be a very useful tool to quickly present images in fullscreen mode. *I* use nothing else anymore! :-)

What's new

[IMPORTANT] Found possible issue with "Individual Files Import" (Advanced Preferences, OS X.9.): Adding locations for individual files import USING DRAG AND DROP is not reliable anymore! The result can be wrong file access permissions, which would prevent changes in "partial folders". Please re-add your locations using the file dialog sheet ("+"-button)! Sorry for the inconvenience!
[fix] Some photos with an unusual date format could crash the app on import. (Thanks for the sample file ... That was very helpful!)
[fix] Fixed issue with the menu bar in fullscreen mode.

[new] Added state preservation options: Its now possible to quit and restart shootShifter with all imports, settings and changes intact (only major limitation: undo buffer is NOT restored). You can even quit the App right in the middle of a (random) slideshow and it will fully resume at that point. (Of course this can only work correctly if your image folders do not change between launches: shootShifter will warn if a folder cannot be "reconnected", and date changes can only be saved if an image did not change after import.)
This is NOT the default behaviour (Use alt+cmd+Q). I still think saving changes and clearing the App is the more apt default for a tool like this, but its possible to change this default in the Advanced preferences.
[new] Added (alt)-option to remove ALL folders at the same time ... E.g. for those cases when you don’t need a resumed state any more.
[new] Added option to save a renaming template as a new template (for quick duplication).
[fix] Fixed several smaller UI-glitches.
[fix] Fixed movie file issue: renaming an imported folder in the finder would prevent movie playback.
[fix] And a few more minor tweaks and bug fixes ...
