Better than shitting into a fan.

I have about 300 photos taken with an old cell phone that apparently didn't record EXIF information. Currently, when I try to import the photos into any photo management tool (like Photos), the tool shows that the pictures were taken on the date that they were copied from the phone, instead of on the date that they were actually taken.

The filenames of the photos, however, are standardized and correctly reflect the time the photos were taken:

MM-DD-YY_XXSS.jpg

MM = Month
DD = Day
YY = Year
XX = Hour (24 hour format)
SS = Second

Is there any simple OS X-compatible tool with a GUI that can take the information from the filenames and throw it into the EXIF data?

Thanks in advance!

And I'm only saying this because I care.

There are a lot of decaffeinated brands on the market today that are just as tasty as the real thing.

Something like ExifChanger might do the trick: http://basepath.com/new/detail-ExifChanger.php since the guts include the commandline EXIFTool. It's a free trial, anyway.

Didn't have the functionality, unfortunately. Anyone else have a suggestion?
