When I uploaded to smugmug and sorted according to "time taken," the photos didn't end up where I expected. I made a rookie mistake, and the two cameras did not synchronize times before the wedding, and it was my camera that was off by an hour.

It sounds like the easiest option for me will be to use bridge to do a batch sort by capture time and rename, but first I need to fix the capture time in my photos. I'd rather just sweep through my JPEGS at this point and not worry about the RAW files, if that's possible.What tools are available to do this, assuming they're all off by some fixed amount?

In Bridge sort by time then manually drag things around. Or use EXIFTools (or similar) to fix that incorrect time in some of the RAW files. Filter by camera serial, copy those files to a new directory, and work on the copies. Keep backups.

when i forget to sync my cameras (and they do come out of sync somehow too!)
i take a photo of them with a point and shoot after the wedding,
that way I can calculate exactly how far they are from each other at any given point in time.

i swear, i've synced based on the first kiss or another important moment in the day (2 shooters)
but i end up off at another point of the day when i do that.

when i do this, i get it right the first time haha
just how i do it anyway

I have a reminder in my diary before each wedding to sync my cameras.

Well, I found a batch EXIF/capture time modification program. After checking my camera time against an atomic clock, I was able to shift the time on all the JPEGs to make them accurate. Bridge then did the rest for me. I was able to sort all of my pictures with the second shooter's pictures by capture time and then rename everything using my own prefix and sequence number. I also used Bridge to update other metadata. This got me close to what I wanted, but the camera clocks are still slightly off from one another, and so there are still some pictures that appear out of sequence that I'll need to fix manually. But it definitely got me a lot closer! Thanks for the help...and I did it all without Lightroom!

got a new backup camera, set the time but...
pri camera's is set before Daylight saving and the new camera is set after Daylight saving...
importing and sorted the photos... ... cant sync due to differences in half an hour of time. any idea how time in camera can be batch move forward by half an hour just to sync both set of photos?

cheers.

Lightroom or EXIFTools can fix them.

Regarding Smugmug, Here's my two cents worth. I know this probably doesn't apply to the OP's situation, but I discovered some of my images out of order when I uploaded them to Smugmug. I finally figured it out. Even though I had sorted the images by capture time, I discovered that when I shoot a burst of images, some of them were out of order. Smugmug recognized the time to the second, not tenths of a second. So, a burst out 8-10 images (at 10 fps) might have several with the same time stamp. :-(

The fix is to batch rename the images and then upload by filename.
