Classifying the images on your phone by the date and time they were taken is an excellent way to keep the photo gallery neat and organised. This also ensures that pictures from a certain event show up together on your phone. Of course, if someone sends you more images of a particular event then your phone will assign the current date to those images instead of the date the event took place. This can throw a wrench into your spotless arrangement or images. Luckily, there is a way you can get around this. In this article, we show you how to change the date and time of a photo on Android.
