Chapter 3. Organizing Photos > To edit multiple photo dates at once

To edit multiple photo dates at once

1.
Select a number of photos, and choose Batch Change () from either the Photos menu or by -clicking the photos.

2.
In the dialog that appears, choose Date from the Set pop-up menu, and then use the controls to set the date to attach to each photo (Figure 3.43).

Figure 3.43. Use the Batch Change command to modify the dates of multiple photos at once, adding a set amount of time between each photo if you wish.


3.
If you want to add a set amount of time by which to increment each photo's date, select the checkbox, enter a number, and choose Seconds, Minutes, Hours, or Days from the pop-up menu.

iPhoto changes the dates appropriately.

✓ Tips

  • You can change photo times too, using the Time field in the Information pane.

  • Although iPhoto recognizes a large number of date formats, it ignores improperly formatted dates when you're typing them manually, so to avoid confusion, it's easiest to edit the date using the same date format iPhoto uses.
