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