That’s what I meant

Here in MO I have to do that, (in fact I had already done that, I’m not that stupid), but every time I have to do it for each photo. In Flickr for example, I don’t have to do it because the date of the photo comes with it when I upload it.

Mushroom Observer doesn’t know what date your observation took place. You must enter that information yourself.

If you use Windows, right click inside your photo folder, select ‘View,’ then ‘Details.’ Right-click any of the column titles (Name, Date Modified, Size, etc.) and select ‘More.’ Scroll down to ‘Date Picture Taken’ and check the box, then click ok. If I had a Mac in front of me, I could give you instructions for that OS as well. Alas, I do not.

Usually just hovering the cursor over a photo file will tell you the date it was taken, which is much simpler.

I’m feeling lost…

I didn’t understand you, Danny, sorry. My photos here on my pc folders have the right date, why can that date be uploaded automatically with the image? every time I have to upload an old image I have to change the date manually, isn’t it?

What did you mean with “you can simply change your OS’ folder options to show “Date Picture Taken On.””?

if i understand correctly

this was not observed on January 18th, 2013, but on whatever date all of your other purple pictures were taken? if so, the date of your observation needs to reflect that.

every picture taken by every digital camera stores date information, along with a great deal more, in the form of metadata aka exif data. here’s a free online exif viewer, no installation required:


or, you can simply change your OS’ folder options to show “Date Picture Taken On.” or you can use Adobe Bridge or Adobe Lightroom and sort all your images by lots and lots of critera, date included.

White balance problems as drastic as exist in your “purple series” could very well inhibit the ability to obtain an ID. it depends on the observation and the extent to which color is a diagnostic character.

Sorry, Danny

I’ve already answered to that comment (I may have pushed the white balanced for mistake, and didn’t even notice that). The problem is that I’m veryyy lazy and It didn´t change these photos date, they were taken in the same occasion. I would be so much easier if the date of the photo would come with the file jpeg. Anyway, does it changes so much that the picture does not give it to recognize the species?

all of your pictures are still purple. did you see my white balance comment earlier?
