Re: [Shotwell] Importing old photos that don't have EXIF

O yes,
I see.
But can't you use jhead to put an Exiv header
with the correct time stamp in the jpg file?
I used
jhead -mkexif -ds2016:12:08 roaarrh.jpg
which set the exif Date to Thu Dec 8, 2016
and which was correctly imported by shotwell
and inserted in the Thu Dec 8, 2016 event.

Hallo Adam,
With the renaming facility of jhead you can place the files in the
correct directories.
I use
   jhead -n/home/gerrit/Pictures/%Y/%m/%d/%f *.JPG

               This  option  causes files to be renamed and/ or
         mmoved using the date information from the Exif header
         "DateTimeOriginal" field.  If the file is not
         an Exif file, or the DateTimeOriginal does not
         contain a valid value, the file date is used.

which means this can not be used. Remember, we are talking of photos
that do not contain valid EXIF data - see the subject line.
