Lightroom Classic: Edit Capture Time doesn't allow for time zones serving 1.5 billion people

Select some photos in the grid and open the Edit Capture Time window. Set Type of Adjustment to Shift by set number of hours (time zone adjust) in the Edit Capture Time window.

Now, I want to shift my photo's with 4h30, (Europe vs Sri Lanka), but it is not selectable. I'm only allowed to change from -24 to +24 in discrete steps of one hour.

Can the resolution of the interval be changed to one minute using 2 combo boxes?

Just select your images and use the "Adjust to a specified date and time" option.  Add 4h30 to the original time and put it in the Corrected Time field.  All of the images will be changed by that same amount.

Ok, thanks Tom. I clearly didn't read the description of the first option. But the caption isn't good either... Good workaround!

Agreed!  "Adjust to a specified date and time" is very misleading when you're trying to change multiple images and has been a source of confusion for years.

The original product developers didn't seem to be aware there are non-hourly time zones serving over 1.5 billion people (India, Sri Lanka, Australia, Iran, etc.).  

I've changed this topic to an Idea (feature request).  It would be better if the time-zone adjust allowed for increments of 15 minutes.  Most time zones are hourly or half-hourly, but two are in 15-minute increments (Nepal, Chatham Islands).

Meanwhile, the workaround provided by Tom seems adequate.

It might be better to have a source (camera setting) and destination (place taken) timezone. Otherwise you could make a lot of incorrect adjustments.

Hi Sam,

Thanks for reporting it. I have filed an ER for this and we will investigate it further.

Thanks,
