Adding Scanned Photos? Enter the Right Time and Date

I know, I know—this is a book for “digital” photographers, but you know, and I know, that you’ve got a scanner. At some point you’re going to scan some photos (then they’ll become “digital images”), and then you’ll want these images to be automatically organized in your catalog. All the scanned photos will have their “creation” date as the day you scanned them, unless you add your own date. This way, you can set the approximate date to when they were shot so they’ll appear in your catalog when they were taken, rather than when they were imported.

Step One

First, get the photos from your scanner (see the “Importing Photos from Your Scanner” tutorial earlier in this chapter). Select all the photos you want to set the date for by Control-clicking each image (or Shift-clicking the first and last image if the images are contiguous) in the Photo Browser window. Then, go under the Organizer’s Edit menu and choose Adjust Date and Time of Selected Items (or press Control-J).
