Upgrade to 3.1.1, then go to Settings -> Configure KPA -> Metadata ->
Date and in the "Fields to get value from", move
"Exif.Photo.DateTimeOriginal" to the very top. Then select all your
images you want to fix and go to Management -> Re-Read Metadata from
Files, select *only* "Update date and time" and press "Read File Info".
All your image dates will be updated.

While we do have some code for detecting renamed files, it's best to
cd /local/pub && more beer > /dev/mouth
