Incorrect date created on photos
Hi all. Hope there is an easy solution to this. Bought a mac in march 2010 and copied over 3 months worth of new baby photos from my Nokia 6500 mobile phone. The exif data shows the photo creation and modified date as 17th march 2010 which is the date I copied over the photos. Problem is I know photos were taken before this. I don't have the Nokia phone anymore but photos I took on that phone and copied to an older windows computer are showing correct dates.
I only just noticed this as I was making albums of daughters 1st year but I can't figure when some of the photos are taken.
Is there a way around this? Thanks

photo dates are either stored in the EXIF data fields....or sometimes you can look at the date of the file. But the file date can changed by the OS if you are moving the files around....so it may no be accurate.
Import all photos from cameras and phones into at least iPhoto...if not Aperture or Lightroom. They should be able to retrieve and display any EXIF data stored in the photo files.

To read the EXIF data use a reader such as http://regex.info/exif.cgi which will list pages and pages of data. You must copy the files from the camera or phone directly to your HDD to avoid losing the EXIF or having it overwritten or modified by software.
