I am writing a bash script and want to get the date after every week. Is it possible?

My command

exiftool -exififd:dateTimeOriginal="2008:10:23 00" test.jpg

So instead of 2008:10:23, I want to pass a date value then run a while loop to batch process files

  • Could you please include an example? I don't understand what you want or how weeks are connected to it. – David Foerster Jul 18 '17 at 16:18

you can use bash expression $(command) for command substitution as below within your command and format the date bar on your expectations.

exiftool -exififd:dateTimeOriginal="$(date + "%y:%m:%d") 00" test.jpg
