Ease the moving of photos between events in iPhoto '08
Authored by: gerbilbox on Aug 10, '07 01:11:10PM

Events are automatically created initially based on when the photos were taken. I don't know what happens with multiple imports of images on the same day, it seems to go off the time stamp in the photo so my GUESS is that it would merge them into one event. I haven't tried it out yet. I found it quite easy to merge and split events, though, so customizing the events of recently imported photos is no problem.

Events is a separate kind of organization independent of albums, it seems that all photos MUST be in some kind of event, and a photo cannot belong to more than one event. You can view an event like a album, but you can also create albums that organize differently and independently of what you have in your events. Events are treated as searchable keywords, I just wish that it would do the same for albums.

I only started using it last night, it took me a little bit to figure out the behaviors, but I like it. The idea of events makes most of my albums totally redundant, but I have certain photos that require much more complex hierarchical organization that events can't do. For those photos, I'll continue to use albums and folders.

Okay. Fair enough.
Now what happen if I (miserably) didn't take time to set the clock of my camera?

I know, I should have know better but here I am... stuck with over 600 pictures dated on December 31 1999...

I guess Applescript (and a little time on my hand and a little help from my fiends) will come to the rescue...

I always found setting the time on my camera to be a little but useful thing, mostly for the sake of "When did that happened?" or "What time of year was it that I did such and such?" and I can reference photos to answer that. It's a little thing, but it's a lot more useful now with Events.
