I've uploaded some images to an album on Google+, however the camera which the photos were taken on did not have the correct date/time. Therefore my images appear out of order (as they are displayed by date).

Is there a way of changing the date/time of an image once it has been uploaded to Google+?

Update: since May 2014 it is now possible to edit the date and time for individual photos on Google+.

By heading to the photo details pane in the lightbox, you'll notice that the data next to "Date taken" is now clickable. When pressed, you are greeted with a popup in which you can edit the date and time stored in the photo's metadata.

Otherwise you can use Picasa: https://support.google.com/picasa/answer/160761?hl=en

You can use Picasa to adjust the date and time of your photos and videos. Follow these steps:

  1. Select the photos that you'd like to adjust. You can only adjust photos or videos from one folder or album at a time.
  2. In Picasa, click Tools > Adjust date and time.
  3. In the 'New photo date:' section, enter the new date and time. If adjusting multiple photos at once, choose whether you'd like to adjust all photo dates by the same amount of time or set them all to the exact same date and time.
  4. Click OK to finish.

Fortunately you can do it from Google+: Click on Photo details, then on the date/time (2nd row)
