The Ultimate File & Photo Tweaking Tool for MacOS

File Multi Tool 6 allows you to change JPEG & RAW shooting dates, JPEG EXIF meta-data tags, file creation & modification dates, file flags and deal with invisible files. File Multi Tool is the Mac App Store version of A Better Finder Attributes 6.

Correct EXIF Digital Photo Shooting Timestamps

File Multi Tool 6 allows you to manipulate JPEG, CR2, NEF, ARF, RAF, SR2, CRW & CIFF EXIF timestamps at will by setting them to specific times or batch adjusting them by adding and removing time (useful for correcting the timestamps of images taken with a digital camera with a incorrectly set clock and to compensate for timezone changes).

Correct Finder Sorting for Digital Photos

File Multi Tool 6 also allows you to synchronize the file creation and modification dates with the shooting dates of JPEG EXIF as well as a wide variety of RAW formats, so that files sort properly in the Finder and other systems.

Change, Add & Remove JPEG EXIF Meta-Data

File Multi Tool 6 allows the most commonly used JPEG EXIF meta-data tags, such as copyright & owner information, camera & lens specifactions, some exposure information and much else besides to be directly manipulated.

You can strip JPEG EXIF information from a file altogether, add or change individual tags.

Total File Creation & Modification Date Control

File Multi Tool 6 gives you total control over file creation and modification dates, setting them to specific times and dates, adding or removing time or simply removing them altogether.

Setting Mac File Flags

File Multi Tool 6 supports setting all common Mac file system flags. You can set whether or not file extensions appear in the Finder, batch lock or unlock files, set or remove legacy creation & type codes, remove invisible files, restart the Finder in a special mode that shows invisible files, batch set Finder labels and force Finder updates.

Showing & Deleting Invisible Files

File Multi Tool 6 can delete invisible files, such as .DS_Store, that can lead to problems when delivering files to non-Mac systems and play havoc with Unix tools such as version control and archiving tools.

On top of this File Multi Tool has a special "Show Invisible Files" feature hidden in the "Tools" menu that switches the Finder to a special mode in which invisible files become visible.

Usage Scenarios

File Multi Tool has been used by professional photographers, web site designers and developers and many other creative professionals who deal with large file collections for close to two decades now.

Correcting For Camera Clock & Time Zone Errors

Whether you forgot to reset the timezone of your camera while traveling, or are using multiple cameras but have forgotten to sync their clocks, the resulting time discrepancies can wreak havoc with your file collections.

File Multi Tool 6 offers a simple way of adding or removing time intervals to entire photo collections in one fell swoop.

Correcting Sorting in the Finder

The Finder uses the file creation or modification dates to sort files but cannot sort by shooting date.

Use File Multi Tool 6 to copy the shooting date to the creation date to get files to sort intuitively.

Removing Camera, Lens & Exposure Information

Many professional photographers do not want to send meta-data about their equipment and exposure information with their files and use File Multi Tool to remove this information before delivering files to clients or uploading them to stockphoto sites.

Adding Copyright or Anonimizing JPEG files

While some photographers prefer anoniziming JPEG files before delivery, others want to add copyright information before delivering their files or sharing them on stockphoto sites. File Multi Tool 6 supports both and makes them equally convenient.

Standardizing File Dates & Flags

A bunch of files with different creation and modification dates, inconsistent file extension settings and Finder labels look messy and unprofessional. Use File Multi Tool to standardize file creation and modification dates, file extension hiding and Finder labels for a cleaner look.
