I know I can edit the capture time of a single image in Lightroom but I was hoping someone can give me a solution for doing this to an entire set of images.

For example if the time it was taken was actually 5:41:07 and I wanted it to be 4:41:07 for the first image and then each image make the same change relative to the actual time it was taken.

Any ideas...

FYI...I'm on a Mac, CS3, Lightrom.

I used a piece of software to change RAW file times once, I forget which, search will find it. Search for something like "change time RAW".

Google told me - Breezebrowser

I'll check but I don't think Breezebrowser has a Mac version.

Set your clock back an hour while you do the processing ;)

1. Import the images into Lightroom.
2. Select the images that you want to edit the capture time. If the entire folder, use CTRL+A to select all the images).
3. In Library mode, go to Metadata > Edit Capture Time and choose the "Adjust to specific date and time" option.
4. Set the correct date and time for the first image and the others will be adjusted relative to the correction in the first image.

Tried that and it only adjusted the time in the first image?

When you enter the Edit Capture Time dialog box, does it tell you how many images you have selected?

That's rather odd... I just opened a random folder in Lightroom 1.4.1 and sselected a few non-contiguous images using the CTRL key. When I invoked the Edit Capture Time dialog box I got the message shown in the attached photo. I also tried it with contiguous selections using the SHIFT key with the same result.

How are you selecting your images? Are you using the filmstrip at the bottom of the screen?

Yes I'm using the film strip at the bottom, I even tried "select all".

I'm doing this on my Mac, I might try it on my PC and see if it makes a difference. Very strange as I don't get that same option/text you are getting.
