    Yes those photos had their correct dates in iPhoto.

    I carried on on with exporting and found other photos lost different metadata too - location, lens information, keyword, etc. a few photos appeared earlier in the day on Photos than they do on iPhoto even though the time stamp is correct.

    I deleted and tried again and they’d imported with the metadata or lose different metadata.

    The majority of photos were fine.

    I don’t know if I’m going something wrong or what but I’m going to try a different method . I’ll upgrade to larger iCloud storage later today, each library the system default one by one, and return to my main photos and let it download the new photos in iCloud.

    It might be a good idea to turn off iCloud Photos for now until you get this Photos library all setup like you want, then turn it back on. Otherwise you will be uploading things over and over needlessly. Just an idea. :)
