I want to do my main editing on my computer (Microsoft Surface Book II).  I have Gimp but it is so involved.

Thought I would try Snapseed, but Malwarebytes blocks it because of a PUP.  Is it referring to Bluestacks that seems to have to be loaded first?

I have many old pre-digital photos to scan.  I like the edits in Google Photos, but then, they are not on my PC.,  Also my scanner uses the scan date as the photo taken date.  I just want all the metadata to match before I export them anywhere. 

Also, is there a way to batch edit the date?


Thanks so much.

Have you tried the editing features on the native Photos app on Windows 10? I has all the basic editing tools.

There is no Snapseed for Windows – only Android and iOS – it is mobile only. So whatever you were trying to install was not the real Snapseed.

Good job thinking about the dates before uploading! and, Yes – it’s pretty easy to batch edit using Windows Files/Folders. 

  1. Select the photos you want to change
  2. Right-click on one of them and choose Properties
  3. In the properties dialog box choose Details
  4. Click in the Date Taken field and enter whatever date you want these photos to have
  5. Click OK to set the new date

Let me know how it goes.

Thanks for your reply.  I thought I had “made sure” it was the Snapseed site…..but guess it was not.  Glad I waited for your reply.  Yes, I have used the win10 photo editing, but it is just so-so compared to  Google photos and especially Gimp.   Guess I will stick with Gimp or look around.


The batch  instructions for changing the dates works great.  I had  “googled”  it before receiving your reply and was surprised it was so easy.
