    Well i jsut got back from vacation and i am combining photos from two camera's. Problem is that one of them was set to 2005 and the other 2006. I tried using ExifTool, but it was a bit over my head. Does anyone know an easier way to fix the EXIF date to make it 2006? Thanks

    This won't change the EXIF data per se and might be too simple for your needs.

    If you just want them to show in iPhoto with the correct date, just highlight the ones that are 05, go to Photo, Batch Change and put in the appropriate date. If there are lots of different dates, there is a little plug-in that used to work for iPhoto 5 (I haven't use it for a while) which would allow you to add x hours/days/months/years to all your pics.

    I don't think that will work. I just need to add +1 to the photos that are labeled 2005.

    Sorry.. all highlighted pics. Naturally, you don't have to do your entire library.

    The photos i want to edit were taken between Jun1 and June 12. Will iPhoto only adjust the year or will i have to adjust each photo by day?

    Try the scripts for your version of iPhoto from this site

    There are several - one allows you to time shift dates by whatever. I'd guess you'll just highlight the pictures, run the script (choosing 1 year) and then it should move those 2005 dates forward. There's another script for going backwards should you need to too :p
