Working through videos have been a huge challenge. In fact, I told many of my clients that we don't process video files with their photo libraries because there was no way for me automate the process, until this course. Adam's course makes it so easy and simple to follow. This gives me tremendous confidence to process any type of media for all my clients.

Adam’s courses are always thorough and very well structured. So is this course. In addition to learning everything about dates in metadata, I finally learned how to apply dates on videos, as well as converting dates from a photo’s filename to metadata. And the best part is he makes it so simple!

Adam, this course....I didn’t even know I needed to take this course and then once I started I cannot believe I had ever doubted it. Your class is well worth my time and money to sort out the complicated work that is photo and video organizing. I am so grateful to be able to take this course!
Good investment of time and money

Although I had learned much about date corrections for images at Metadata Camp 2018, this was a great refresher. The new knowledge concerning videos was the reason I enrolled. I look forward to using my new skills on my own archives and my clients' video archives as well.
