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

Nov 18, 2007

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.

Applications :: How To Change Date Stamp On Photos

Oct 12, 2009

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.)

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Scanning Old Photos Into IPhoto - Modifying Date Not Working?

May 25, 2012

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.

Intel Mac :: Change The Print Quality When Printing Photos Through Iphoto?

Feb 6, 2012

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

Intel Mac :: How To Get IPhoto 9 To Display Photos Way Iphoto 6 Did

Jul 1, 2012

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 :: Date Taken Field Not Shown On Importing Photos From Windows

Mar 22, 2010

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?

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. It take me hours to reorganize by date manually. Is there an option in iPhoto or a workflow that will do this automatically? (the photos are all dated, just in the wrong order)

OS X :: IPhoto Library Not Showing On Desktop / Unable To Set Iphoto Library Photos As Screensaver

Sep 1, 2009

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?

Applications :: IPhoto Events - Chronological Order By Date Taken

Jan 6, 2010

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

Jan 21, 2010

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.

Applications :: Save Location And Date To Picture File In Iphoto 09?

Oct 17, 2010

I have a fairly big photo library in iphoto 09 and I am wondering if there is an option to save information like location, description, date etc to the actual picture file. The reason I ask is because when I went to export some pictures it didnt save any of this information whatsoever and with 4000 photos thats a lot of work to go add all that information back to. Anyone else have experience with this?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Cannot Change File Creation Date

Feb 12, 2012

I have files with no creation date or creation date 1969, etc (came from bad settings in camera).

Since I knew the date, I was able to easily fix it via touch:

touch -t 20090110 IMG_1023.JPG 

This used to set creation, modification, and access time to 20090111, in Snow Leopard.   However, I can no longer do this in Lion. It does set modification and access, but creation date is still screwed up.

Software :: Change Of Modification Date On Opening Nested Folder

Nov 8, 2008

It seems that whenever you open a nested folder in the finder, it changes the modification date of the parent directory, this is a real pain, especially in the nested folders of the ~/Library folder. I often trawl through these folders in search of Application Support files etc and don't necessarily want the parent folder's modification date to change just 'cos I view its contents. This happens regardless of whether I have modified the contents or not!

OS X :: Uploading Photos From IPhoto Library

Oct 27, 2010

First post and want to say this web site has already been great in answering questions. New Mac user (first 60 days) and had really been wishing that I bought the 1:1 service as the transition from a PC has been hard. Watched all of the iPhoto and Finder on line tutorials last couple of days then found this great site via Google. Wish I had found this about 45 days ago. I have done some searches and I am down to a few last questions / confirmations re: iPhoto. - IPhoto library / pictures in the library are not to be accessed using Finder... it is a finder, not a doer and that is how you end up with those pictures with and ! in them. Correct? I admit that I was thinking finder was like windows explorer and you could do things to photo files, copies, move them around, etc. - Go to many different Forum sites and I need to upload photos to those site. I can't seem to use the "browse for a file" function from these sites and see any of the photo files in the iPhoto library? From posts and a lot of trial and error is the best way to do is just to export the photos out of iPhoto library to a desk top folder? Seems like a work around. Am I missing something?............

I somehow lost half my photo album and eventually searched spotlight with 'jpeg and jpg'. This not only found them, it found literally thousands more, many of them duplicates. Does anyone know if there is an easy way to restore the missing Photos. My idea is to import the lot, and then hopefully try and remove all duplicates like itunes does.

Applications :: Where Does IPhoto Stores The Photos

Aug 4, 2008

I just upgraded to iPhoto 8 and noticed the contents of the library where not stored in the 'pictures' folder on the 'home' folder as it was on previous versions. However the iPhoto file (in the 'pictures' folder that is) increases in size when photos are added.

Are all your photos embedded in that file?

If not how do you back up your iPhoto library? AND how do you access photos individually outside of the iPhoto app?

I didn't find the folder hierarchy very intuitive in previous versions but at least it was all there in folders in the primary 'pictures' folder.

When I double-click on certain photos (all landscape view) to enlarge them, they expand out, and then go black. If I click on the "Name" button it recognizes faces behind the black but I can't see anything.

I've rebuilt the library and repaired permissions. It doesn't help to reimport the pictures or to rotate them around.

The total size of all the pics is 1.5 gigs. I can't imagine why it would take this long.
