Hello everyone.

I am really quite new to photography and eager to learn, inevitably I have come across a problem that I need some expert advice on.

Whilst taking some long exposures the other day I found that I could not open them in the program(GIMP 2.8) I use to edit such photo's. Upon searching for an answer, I found someone who had rectified the issue by changing the data associated with the picture.The program wont open anything longer than 30s exposure time with ML setting.

Question: The EXIF data can be changed, but how do I do this? If I may quote this gent, maybe someone will know what he is talking about.

So,
I identified the problem now!
The value for "37377 Photo.ShutterSpeedValu​e SRational" = -2147483648/1
I changed the value to 327680/65536, like it is on other (openable) photos! Now Gimp opens the pic!

Thanks for any assistance.

Just for those curious.
I have a Canon 500d, 18/55 lens.
