When I try to change the date of a scanned photo I get a strange and incorrect date in response.
For example if I put in 25/01/1985 I get a return date of 12/11/573. Each time I try to input the correct date the return date is earlier and earlier.
I have tried changing the file date through terminal. I have tried resetting the system date but the changed photo date still won't move to the one I input.
Does anyone know how to fix this?
Try this with a couple copies of your scanned photos:
1 - download the Automator Convert to JPG and Embed sRG Profile application from Toad's Cellar and uncompress it.
2 - drop the scanned copies onto the application.
3 - import the converted files into iPhoto and try changing the dates as you want.
