Batch changing iPhoto photo dates.

Time:December 10
Advertisement
I've imported several thousand scanned photos into iPhoto 7.1.3, and changed the dates to the dates they was taken either by modifying the information window, or by using batch date change. My intention was to modify the original files so that exported photos would retain the change. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of not setting the "Modify original files" option in my batch changes. Is there a way to use Apple Script or some other method to do modify these files automatically?
