I have 8500 images from a trip in 2006 that I imported from an old appproject into a new Aperture Library.  They came in fine other than the Date Created didn't come in = the information is there [when I did a Get Info IPTC Core] it shows up greyed out] but it's not in the Date Created column unless I go thru one by one and click each one in the IPTC Core info Date Created area and then click the image row in the column in list view...Which I don't want to do for 8500 images.


How can I get the Date Created to show up in the Column view?  I did do the Reprocess Originals once before but that was before I was checking the dates.

    Date created is written by the camera to EXIF, not to IPCT. IPCT is your "handwritten" data.

    If your aparently old camera didn't write the date to EXIF - you are out of luck

    Does the EXIF date show?


    Why do you need the IPTC "date created" data?
