A few tips for importing photos into iPhoto Apps
As mentioned in this article about importing pictures into iPhoto, importing your entire collection can have some problems. However, if you import your album piecemeal, you might have better success. I had all of my photos arranged into individual folders. I imported one folder at a time and iPhoto associated each separate batch of imported files with a "roll". So, then in the organize view you can enable the view by Film Rolls option so you can see all of your photos segmented the way you originally wanted them.

A few notes:

1) Dragging a file or folder from the Finder onto iPhoto Organize view is the same using the Import menu command.

2) The time and date on the roll will be today, rather than when the pictures were actually taken. Therefore, you should import your pictures in chronological order.

3) I found a bug in the import command. Don't import pictures from a CD. Copy them to your hard drive first. Otherwise, the pictures will be copied as read-only and you won't be able to edit your pictures.

I want to change the roll date
Authored by: mspalacios on Jan 16, '02 09:52:47AM

I want to change the roll date when I import photos in iPhoto. Any ideas on how to do that? Already my photos have their access and modification times correctly set.
