Hi guys,

I am trying to import my videos and photos to Mac's Photos app. I like the idea of having your media sorted out by their creation dates and seeing your holidays and birthdays in a neat order. However I realised a lot of my files had their "Created" date are messed up due to some Windows copy paste issue in the past. So the "Modified Date" shows their true creation dates and Created date show some date in 2013. Now what I wish to do is copy modification date of each file to said files creation date so that I can see proper sorting in Photos app. Does anyone have any solution to propose for this?

See if this Macworld Magazine article (http://www.macworld.com/article/2999925/photography/how-to-modify-the-creation-date-for-pictures-in-apple-photos-for-os-x.html) helps. It has instructions on how to change the creation date for Photos.

Take a look at File Multi Tool 5, available in the APP store. That should do the job for you.

Cheers Mitch

Thanks. I just checked your suggestion. It looks exactly like a tool that I found after I posted the thread. It is called A Better Finder Attributes 6 which I purchased and was exactly doing the thing that I wanted. It seems like your suggestion is different only in name.

Thanks a lot..
