I have several photos sent to me via email attachments in Mail which I want to "add to iphoto."  When I do this, the original date of the photo changes to "today's date." 

 

When I drag the photo to the desk top, the file (photo) properties change and the date changes to "today's date."

 

Is there a way to import photos and preserve the original date the photo was taken?  For example,  if my family finally got around to sending me photos from 4th of July, I know the date is 7/4/2012, not today's date, 10/9/2012. 

 

I want to avoid the time/work of doing batch changes on countless photos I want to add to iphoto.
