New years Eve I took pictures leading up to midnight on my DroidX in Central Time Zone. The next day I transferred them to Picasa (latest version). When I could not find them in folder 20101231 I went looking and found them time stamped 6 AM 1/1/2011. This lead me to examine all of my photos uploaded from the DroidX to Picasa and those that I can assign a time to reasonably all show an offset from local time that reflects UTC (Universal Time with 0 at Greenwich Meridian).
According to DroidX forums there is is “normal” when reviewing the files on the Droid the phone adjusts to local time.
Is everyone else aware of this? Is there a fix out there other than changing the time stamp on each image?
I just checked a picture I took with my Droid yesterday about 4pm (Eastern) and, it is indeed time-stamped with 4:08pm. My Droid is the original … just Droid. So, I guess this is just an X thing?
by the way, you say that you went looking for the picture in a folder 20101231 … I preach that your pictures should be going into folders that you specify – not something automatic. At least, if you're using Picasa.
Ok, got it.
I still think that importing directly into 201012 is better. If you import into 20101231, then move all pictures out of that folder, you're left with an empty folder. You won't see that empty folder in Picasa (because it only shows pictures) – but, if you look at your folders with Windows Explorer, you'll have a bunch of empty 'way stop' folders.
