Change date taken on jpeg pictures.

We are grouping pictures from multiple cameras.  One of our Tech set the time for AM instead of PM.  When we sort by chorological order the photos are mixed up.
Does anyone know of a batch software where I can change the meta data and move the Date Taken time 12 hours ahead?

    I think the easiest way is to use Windows Live Photo Gallery. In fact, you can select a group of images and change them all at the same time.

    FastStone Image Viewer 4.6 Freeware will also accomplish this on multiple files at the same time.Batch modify time stamp
