    I have a fairly big photo library in iphoto 09 and I am wondering if there is an option to save information like location, description, date etc to the actual picture file. The reason I ask is because when I went to export some pictures it didnt save any of this information whatsoever and with 4000 photos thats a lot of work to go add all that information back to. Anyone else have experience with this?

    I don't think PNG can hold much metadata. Make sure you are exporting as JPEG.

    I prefer SetEXIFData. Drag the images from the iPhoto window to the window in SetEXIFData, enter any parameters you want & click Process.

    I have been using this app for years and it works fine on my Mac.
