For some reason, a large bulk of my photos in iPhoto '11 displays the wrong date. When I look at Info, I see the "Taken" date is incorrect (dating photos way into the future: September, 2023; January, 2024, et cetera), but "Modified" however is correct. (Even though I never modified the photos.)


I rebuilt my library several times, even used the iPhoto Library Manager app, to no avail. The only thing it did was somehow reinsert photos that had long been deleted.

    Any idea how the date got off? are these scans or camera photos? are there groups of photos off by the same amount?
