OS X :: How To Change Date Of Photos In IPhoto

I need to change the date on some of my photos in iPhoto. Some of them are from a disc of old (non-digital camera) photos and are all dated 1/1/99. I'd like to put them in some sort of date order. Also my girlfriend set the date on her new camera/phone to be 2008 so I'd like to change those too. I've got iPhoto 6 if that helps.

IPhoto 11 :: Printing Photos In A Group By Date?
I have three groups of photos. One group has 125 photos, another about 200 photos, and the final one has about 350 photos. Each group has photos with dates from July 5th to October 18th, 2010.

I need to take certain photos from a date (say September 1st) and print photos from that date forward. Is this possible, and if so, how?

IPhoto 11 :: How To Sort Photos In Albums By Date
For some reason that I have yet to divine, iphoto 11 jumbles the order of photos in any album I create. For example, I have an album called 'Family', and rather than display the photos by the date they were taken, it jumbles them into a mish mash of images. I took 50 pics yesterday and imported them last night. I opened iphoto today to make some edits, and the photos have been dispersed throughout an album of thousands of images. I know I can go and examine the images in 'Events' or 'Photos', but I'd like to see them in context with the rest of my family photos.

Is there some way to get albums to sort photos by date taken like the older versions of iphoto?

Aperture :: How To Change Date In Multiple Photos
I am trying to change the date for multiple photos. Seems silly but I did not find the function... The "Adjust Date & Time..." will not change the date! Yes, it will do it for 1 photos but not for multiples. If multiples photos are selected, Aperture will shift the date based on the relative differences. I do want the date to be shifted, I just want to have all the photos with the same date.

Applications :: How To Change Date Stamp On Photos
My girlfriend and I have been sharing her Kodak camera for a while now. We use it to take family photos and such. I then use iPhoto to import the photos and break them up into events. Well, I let my girlfriend use the camera about 3 months ago and she changed the time stamp of the photos to 2008 instead of 2009 somehow. I sat down about a week ago to import all the photos we had since taken and was shocked when iPhoto put the new events way back with events from 2008. I then realized the time stamp was off and about had a fit. I quickly rectified the problem on the camera so this will no longer be an issue, but we have tons of great photos which are all incorrectly dated.

And call me a perfectionist, but its driving me nuts!! Now whenever I'm showing friends and family photos I have to scroll way back to 2008, and its just not fluid. I have tried quite a few things to change the date stamp. I cant seem to find any options in iPhoto, so I went into finder and opened the "Get Info" pain to see if I could manually change it, but no dice. I've googled for a week now and cant seem to find an answer. Does anyone know of some software that can handle this or a trick im overlooking? (Just to clarify, by date stamp, im not referring to the date image ingrained on the picture itself, but rather the date the camera assigns to the image file.)

IPhoto 11 :: Add Flagged Photos To Selected Event (Date Wise)
So I am having to bite the bullet and re-import all of my referenced pics to try and consolidate them eventually into my managed library. I start with my first folder, import it, select the 103 photos in the Event with a view of then going to the existing Event, Adding Flagged Photos to it and then deleting out the older non-linked ones. Except I cannot seem to get the Add Flagged Photos function to activate in any circumstances, it is simply greyed out and nothing I do seems to want to activate it.

Is this a bug or an odd change in functionality from 09? While we are at it, another function I used a lot in 09 was searching a photo by date from the search box in the bottom bar. I would select date, hold down the Alt button to select all pics on that day i.e. 13/12 and iPhoto would display them. It doesn't now, I follow this exact same flow and it will display all pictures that are December pics instead of the single day specific ones.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Scanning Old Photos Into IPhoto - Modifying Date Not Working?
Im scannig old photos and when I go intot the date and time it changes the date of the picture to 1944.  For example the photo is from 1910 and I set the date to 1910 when I exit the photo and modified the origional date it then changes the photo date to 1944.  I have to again go into the photo and change the date of the photo back to 1910.  If the photo date is after 1944 it will accept the new date fine.

IPhoto 11 :: Working With Scanned Photographs - Unable To Change Date
It does not allow me to change the date (when I try both as batch change and 'change date & time' it returns absurd dates like 1792). For those of us who have an archive of old photos that we have scanned, it makes working with them very difficult. Something that was not the case in iphoto 09. In the event view, I am unable to order the pictures manually, as that is unhighlighted. I need this feature as I have many pictures from years ago that I have scanned and put by years. It is a mess, and Apple needs to do something about it. Digital are not the only photos people have, and they to get up to speed with the world that is saving old material digitally. I find Apple lagging.

Intel Mac :: Change The Print Quality When Printing Photos Through Iphoto?
How can I change the print quality when printing photos through iphoto on my iMac? I am running OSX 10.7.2 I have installed my printer with the latest downloaded drivers etc. The printer is a HP photosmart 5510. I have gone into system preferences, then print and scan. From here I can see my printer but can't see anyway of changing the print quality. Similarly, if I go into print settings via iPhoto I have the same problem. I have been able to change the quality in Safari but can't see how to create a default setting for photo printing at the highest quality

After the latest update of iphoto '11 to version 9.1.1 one photograph has replaced all the others in the majority of the older folders. It has repeated its self hundreds of times. However when one clicks on the events folders the original pictures can still be seen. Before I sink my iphone again and risk loosing the photos on that I need a fix for this problem.

Aperture :: After Importing All Existing Photos From IPhoto - Can Delete My IPhoto Library?
Hello all, first time user here. Downloaded the trial and am thinking about purchasing the full version. I have a few questions here;

1. If I click buy to get the serial number, after authorizing the program, will the "Trial" word disappear from all the menus and setting? And will the library name changed from Aperture 3 Trial Library automatically to just Aperture 3 Library?

2. When I start importing photos from camera into A3, will I be able to use iPhoto to view or edit if I delete the original iPhoto library? In short, will iPhoto be able to share the same library when I start using A3?

3. After importing all existing photos from iPhoto, should and can I delete my iPhoto library?

4. Will I be able to use and install A3 on both my laptop and iMac at the same time or is it restricted to 1 computer?

IPhoto 11 :: Unable To Recover Deleted Photos From Iphoto
I tried to back up my iphoto pictures to an external hard drive. I guess instead of copy the 'iphoto library' icon from my Pictures folder, i copies the 'iphoto library' folder in the 'Aperture Library' folder.

Then i deleted some of my old photos thinking that I have backed up the images. But to my horror, when i copied the 'iphoto library' folder from my external hard drive back to my laptop, it doesn't work.

How can i retrieve my photos??

Intel Mac :: How To Get IPhoto 9 To Display Photos Way Iphoto 6 Did
i have returned all my photos into the new iphoto 9.1.However they aren't displayed the way they used to be. The computer is ignoring all the dates i entered on the individual film rolls and displaying them with date that's embedded on the digital images.An example is i have a film roll which contains photos of my cat Salem which range from 2004 to 2012. This 'folder' used to be displayed at the bottom of all the film rolls as i had it dated 12/25/2020 so i knew where it was and could add to it easily. Now though it's near the top lumped together with 2004 photos dated 2004-2012.How do i get iPhoto to display my photo film rolls the way they were on iphoto 6?I would go back to running TIiger and the apps that came with it including iPhoto 06 but i need snow leopard as i have bought two new Lacie 2 TB drives for storage and they need a newer operating system.

OS X Leopard :: Sorting Photos Into New Folders By Creation Date?
Over the years I've collected thousands of digital photos, all organized by different programs in different ways and generally mismanaged.

I would like to set up an automated task that would sort through my Pictures folder, and move each photo into a new folder, sorted by creation date.

Example: All photos taken on 9/2/02 would be moved into a folder titled "02_9_2" or something like that. All photos taken on 3/12/06 would be moved into a newly created folder called "06_3_12". Year, Month, Day.

OS X :: Date Taken Field Not Shown On Importing Photos From Windows
I am fairly new to the world of mac's and I'm having a problems with my photo's. On my old windows PC I have 1000's of photo's. When I right click on a photo in windows and go to 'details' it will tell me the exact date and time when it was taken. So if I then import them into some library software such as picasa, it sorts it them all out by this date. However, I've now copied all my photo's to my new imac and the 'date taken' field doesn't seem to be there. When I import them into iphoto or picasa etc, they are totally messed up and all over the place.

Why did OSX loose that data? I will try to explain a little better using screenshots. This screenshot is from windows: [URL]. At the top is says 'date taken' and any windows photo library software will sort it by this date. Below are the properties of the same file after it's copied to osx: [URL]. It contains lots of information about the picture but not when it was taken. So software such as iphoto or picasa sorts it by it's created date (which you can see at the top is Monday 12th January). Why isn't OSX carrying over the exif data on when the photo was taken?

IPhoto 11 :: Photos Don't Show Up In "Photos" Section When Creating A Calendar?
I keep adding photos to a calendar (by dragging them over to the item in the "Projects" list) and the photos don't show up in the Photos bar on the right when composing the calendar. I've fiddled with toggling "Show: Placed (Unplaced) Photos" and they just flat aren't there.

IPhoto still thinks their there though, because I can re-drag the photo to the project and the number of photos doesn't increment. Right now There are 242 photos in the calendar project, and I can see maybe 100 of them.

Applications :: IPhoto - Organizing Events By Date
I recently imported 10,000 photos to iphoto covering the last 12 years of my life. The only problem is that the events are not in the correct order by date.

OS X :: IPhoto Library Not Showing On Desktop / Unable To Set Iphoto Library Photos As Screensaver
I have experienced a problem after I updated to SL last night.I made a fresh install of both SL and iLife 09 on my mbp unibody late 2008.

Afterwards, I replaced the my fresh iphoto library simply with my old iphoto 09library from time machine (no migration tool, only copy pasts).

But now I recognized a problem that I see no iphoto library in my Desktop and Screensaver Menu in control panel. I cant set iphoto library photos as screensaver cause I cant see them

Does anyone have a solution for it? or does anybody face the same issue?

IPhoto 11 :: Date And Time Not Shown In Big Sidebar
In the previous version I could see the date and time in a little window in the left bottom corner (when info was open) in the existing sidebar. Now I can see it only in a very wide sidebar on the right when info is open. I don't like this very much. That right sidebar takes a lot of place. I see a lot less photo's on the screen. Is there a option or hack to see the date and time when I hover above, or click a photo, on a existing top or bottom bar? Space enough there.

Applications :: IPhoto Events - Chronological Order By Date Taken
I have several iPhotos events. They largely consist of digital pictures tagged with the right dates. However, recently I imported some of these such pictures off of an old computer. While they are labeled with the right days, iPhoto seems to be listing events in the order they were imported in. Thus, I have pictures taken in 2003 next to my Christmas pictures from this year. I'd rather just have everything in chronological order, by date taken. Is there a way to do this?

Applications :: Cannot Sort By Date In Aperture IPhoto Browser
How do I get Aperture's built-in iPhoto browser to sort iPhoto Events by date? Over the last year I've switched from iPhoto to Aperture. I prefer iPhoto Events as an organizational scheme, sorted by date, so I am re-creating a chronological scheme with Aperture -- as many do. I've been gradually and selectively importing hundreds of iPhoto Events into Aperture Projects by dragging them from Aperture's built-in 'iPhoto Browser'. Here's the problem: Aperture's iPhoto browser shows Events, but they are annoyingly sorted alphabetically, rather than by date. This makes it a real pain to transition chronologically.

I can't find any control to re-sort by date. Inexplicably, on a couple of occasions I have opened the Browser to find it sorted by date! Temporarily rejoicing, it soon reverts to alphabetical after one session. WTF? I have a hunch these couple times were flukes, possibly having to do with iPhoto being open at the same time, I dunno. Still, I now know it's possible; and if it involves some weird workaround to re-create it, I'll do it. I'm running Leopard 10.5.8, Aperture 2.1.4, iPhoto 7.1.5.

(iMovie09 shows me the date when I hover over clips, but I cannot change it. If I click on properties, I can adjust many things, except the date. Sometimes I am able to change the date by changing the file name inside the iMovie Events directory to something like "clip-2010-08-01.dv", but that doesn't always work).

Aperture :: Can Change Image Date And Capture Year
Is there a way to manually change the image date and capture year (and other metadata for that matter) upon import? I have some pictures given to me by friends that they took on their own cameras and I want to import them into my Aperture Library, only it seems as though they didn't pay attention to/care about setting the date/time on their cameras. This causes me to lose sequence with my own photos that were taken with my camera on the same day.

I tried to append and replace the IPTC Metadata, but that didn't seem to work. What can be done about this, or am I just stuck with some out of sequence photos when I sort by image date?
