Adding dates using quicklists


See how to quickly insert a date in a date field that has quicklists enabled.

Inserting a date

When clicking on metadata fields that require a date (such as Created Date and Release Date), you will see that clicking on the corresponding Quicklist dropdown button opens a calendar you can select date from. If you like you can also enter a date directly into the field. Use only numbers and a period (“.”) to separate the numbers.

The date input format is controlled by the regional settings on the computer. You will also see the date formatted according to regional settings in FotoStation's metadata editors. On a technical note, when stored in XMP format, dates are formatted YYYY-MM-DD.
