Missing Dates

When I uploaded my photos to dropbox, some of the photos went into a section called 'Missing Dates' while others went into their correct dates on the timeline. I was wondering how to move these photos/videos out of 'Missing Dates' and into their correct dates on the timeline? I have tried deleting and re-uploading all of the photos but some still went into 'Missing Dates'. Also, some photos from the same event went into the 'Missing Dates' section, while others went into their correct dates. Thank you.

Re: Missing Dates

Hi there larrypotter ,

 

Dropbox draws the metadata for each photo (information that cameras attach to photos, such as time and date) from each specific device. If a photo is missing the time or date, there is no way to add this information using Dropbox. 

 

Hope that this helps. 

 

Kind Regards, 

JaneA

Re: Missing Dates

Thank you JaneA,

 

How would I find the metadata for each photo?

Open the photo in an EXIF editor.
