Ubuntu: Passing a date in an exiftool command



Question:

I am writing a bash script and want to get the date after every week. Is it possible?

My command

exiftool -exififd:dateTimeOriginal="2008:10:23 00" test.jpg  

So instead of 2008:10:23, I want to pass a date value then run a while loop to batch process files


Solution:1

you can use bash expression $(command) for command substitution as below within your command and format the date bar on your expectations.

exiftool -exififd:dateTimeOriginal="$(date + "%y:%m:%d") 00" test.jpg
