Have you checked the camera date?

Very good thought, but my camera date appears to be accurate. Thank you.

I had this exact same issue and it started for me when I moved to Mountain Lion. The photos would be in the "Last import" but not in "Last 12 months". I removed all the prefernce files but that did not solve the problem. So, I did the following:
1. In Preferences, change the Last "12" months to "1" month
2. Let the screen refresh for 1 month
3. Change back to "12" months.
This worked for me. I would have thought killing the preference files would have the same effect, but apparently not.

I appreciate it.

Do I need to do something to get this solution to keep working? What I mean is this: each time I import more photos, the same problem continues to recur.....under Last 12 months my more recent imports do not show up. I can manually apply the solution that you suggested each time but I would like to not have to manually change the preferences again and again. Do you have any suggestions as to how to make the solution "stick".

Once I made the above change, it has "stuck". However, when I was trying various things, I did remove my preference files (*iPhoto*plist) files from ~/Library/Preferences. So it may be possible that my "quick fix" above stuck because I did these other things.

I'm pretty sure that I am looking in the correct location and I don't see "iPhoto plist" under Macintosh HD/Library/Preferences. Is that where I want to look?
Currently Being ModeratedSep 5, 2012 1:27 AM (in response to Nature Guy)
That's the wrong place...
HD/Users / Your Name /Library/Preferences
But note that the Library folder is hidden so
On 10.7 or later : Hold the option (or alt) key while clicking on the Go menu in Finder to access the User Library

Terence. Thanks for the reply. I use Finder all the time but I don't think that I am familiar with the Go Menu. Where is that?
Currently Being ModeratedSep 5, 2012 4:08 AM (in response to Nature Guy)
In the Finder, look at the top of the screen, up there between View and Window...

Thanks for the help. I won't know if deleting preferences helped until I download some new photos which I may do this evening. I will let you know. Thanks guys.

Hey guys. I did delete preference files as noted above but my issue persists. Every time I import more photos, they are not included in "the last 12 months" album/folder. So I have to manually go in and mess around with the preferences to get them to show up.
Any suggestions anyone?

I am getting the same thing. The solution is not sticking. I have to go in and toggle the number of months every time.

I have found that simply opening preferences (and not making any changes) and closing it again will trigger "Last 12 Months" to update. For now, that's just become part of my regular photo-uploading routine. Hopefully they fix it soon though...
