    Are you using iPhoto? If so, select the photos you want to change the date on, then click on "Window" then "batch change" then "change date and time" and enter the correct date there. Be sure to check the box that says to modify the file so that it will be the correct date everywhere.

    Do not do anything in you iPhoto library in finder! If you change anything there, you will corrupt your database. Forget that the library in finder exists and do anything and everything to/with your photos from within the app itself. It is never necessary to go into the finder to access your photos (if you are using iPhoto as it was intended).
