You are seven or eight hours behind the website time. (I am two hours ahead). So yes, if you take a shot late in the afternoon on the Canadian West Coast, the site will see that as very early morning the day, and apply the next date.

The incorrect capture date showing on all my photos taken during December / January West Coast trip. For example recently uploaded photo vehicle carrier TORONTO was taken on January 7. Site showing January 5 as capture date...?   https://www.shipspotting.com/photos/3415691
Other uploads are out of synch by 1 or 2 days. All photos taken during above mentioned time period showing dates prior to when photo(s) actually taken. I've tried changing date(s) using edit feature and site will not correct. On some of the uploads taken same day site will show 2 different capture dates...?

Yes, I understand that for posting a photo;

but for capturing: I captured this photo at 8 a.m. on April 21, and I am unable to get this date entered;
instead I keep getting the previous day, i.e. April 20. Tried several times unsuccessfully to edit the date.

Beats me!

Hi all, I have reported this specific thread to IT, and apparently the software is trying to compensate for time differences, which does not work properly. It will be taken up soon.

photo taken late on June 22 local west coast Canada time, but consistently saved either as June 20
or June 21 and NOT June 22.

still impossible to enter/save/edit/save (whatever I try) to get proper date of capture.
