I'm not sure I should be using iPhoto to import my pictures. I also use a PC at work and often want to copy my folders to a pen drive. With iPhoto, I either have to drag each folder manually or export each folder, but in both cases it is altering the date of the picture from when it was taken to when it was exported. Am I doing it wrong? Is there any way to export pictures from iPhoto keeping the original date? Thanks !

Hi,

Not 100% sure re date change but possibly the date change is reflecting the last time the file was accessed rather than when the actual photo was taken.

If you are using both a Mac and PC for viewing photos and just want to transfer them form one to another, why not just copy the photos you want from your photo / pictures folder on the Mac to USB stick then from there to the photo folder or where ever you want on the PC and visa versa this way you should defiantly not see a date change.

Thanks ! I actually don't have an organized pictures folder because I import directly into iPhoto, so all I see is the iPhoto library. when I copy/paste or drag from iPhoto is when the date changes...

Thanks so much chas_m. Real time saver. I was seriously considering quitting iPhoto altogether...

Do you have any tips on backuping videos? Is it OK to download straight to iMovie? If so, what's the best way to back up the files?

Thanks again !

Guys,
Struggling to understand where all my photo duplicates are coming from and how Iphoto handles them.
I assume that all photos are held in normal folders in finder and you have to import them to Iphoto? Does this duplicate them in finder?
If I need to remove duplicates should I be working wuth finder?

Sorry very confused at this end.

Mike

Thats very helpful thanks. To be sure though I would like to remove all the duplicates in my finder folders, back them up and switch to Iphoto. I know this has been asked a million times but to find duplicates in Finder folders what the best app or process to use.

Thanks,

Mike

"Find Duplicate Files" from Araxis works well for me.
