    Your camera has to put the correct date and time in the EXIF info in the file. If this has not been done iPhoto will not manage to guess the correct date.

    Save a picture from where? This would not normally add any EXIF data to the image so would be of no help.

    You may be able to hand date them at least by year or whatever your patience level and or memory allows.

    Highlight a group of photos, in the Menu bar click "Batch Change" and set the date.
