Hi Phil, I am trying to figure out how to do a compound IF statement such as if the DateTimeOriginal and ModifyDate and CreateDate are empty / no value then set DateTimeOriginal to FileModifyDate. I tried all three methods (command line, @Argfile, and .Exiftool_config).
I perfer to use @argfile syntax. I made a Composite TAG in .Exiftool_config which works great when outputting results but fails to work in a IF statement.
In anycase, I do not understand Pearl enough to get things right. Pearl is so cryptic to me and add the complexity of you having a internal pasrer in the exiftool, makes things just a bit more impossible. I do hate having to rely on your expertise. You have no idea how much I appriciate your product and your feedback and assistance.
