Anyone know how to edit this? I have several photos that have the wrong date that the picture was taken. I can edit it iPhoto but this does not actually change the data of the file. Any suggestions?

Choose the photo(s), click on Photo in the menubar, then on Adjust Date and Time. Be sure to check the box that says to change the actual file. Adjust to your heart's content!

In the iPhoto app, choose your photos that you want to change, then click on "Photo" on the menubar and then "Adjust Date & Time".

Right under "Adjust Date and Time". Have you looked there?

And while you asking that question, you should be giving the same. In fact you should have mentioned it in your original post.

CameraTime - Time lapse photography for novice and advanced users.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
