Yes, it should account for the time zone difference, and effectively 
change the time in the gps time stamps to UTC+1.

If you want to make sure the time zone offsets are correct, check 
whether the first and last images of a trip got coordinates. If you took 
photos shortly after turning your GPS on, having the wrong offset 
usually results in no coordinates being found for them.
