Hey, for some reason Lightroom CC imported about 2500 of my photo's to May 9, 2017. These photos are in reality from a variety of different dates. I also store my photos with google photo's and these same 2500 photos appear under the correct dates there so it seems to be a Lightroom problem. Does anyone have an explanation for this and more importantly a solution, preferably one that is quick! If all else fails then my 2nd question would be, does anyone know how to change the capture date on each photo in Lightroom CC, either on Windows or on the IOS version. Let me know if you have an answer! This is super annoying!!!

Are you talking about the recently added or by date section in 'my photos'?  Or are you saying the capture date in info shows May 9th?

IMG-0173.JPGIMG-0174.JPGIm talking about under the all tabs and the date section where it has all my photos organized by date. The other 15k photos got organized under the right date but about 2.5k of them all got put on may 9. I only imported all these photos last week so may 9 was a weird day to put them on. They all show up correctly in google photos.

and yes is does also show the capture date under info as may 9. No idea why it chose that date. That’s not the date they were captured on.

I know it's no help, but I too had this problem of photos getting incorrect dates put in them when I imported.  Just wanted you to know it wasn't just you

Similar issue here. Mine is showing the capture date properly, but when I import they are going into a folder based on the date modified rather than the date captured which is almost more frustrating as they end up scattered randomly all over creation. I haven't been able to find how to override what it's looking at to sort the photos by.

That's exactly the issue I have, too. It's a huge time sink when that happens.

Same problem here. Date of photo taken is correct in Windows-Explorer and some apps on my iPhone. But some of the imported photos get the modified date instead of the 'taken date'. Very annoying 😕

I have the same annoying problem. Photos are imported not into the folder for the date created but some other folder (am not sure whether it is the last changed date, but I don't think I touch that much photos).

This is really annoying!! My iPhone photos are a real mess on my HDD.

Any answers from Adobe or any ETA for the fix of this bug??

This is still not fixed with the new LR version. Any Adobe people listening in?

Yes, please, does anybody from Adobe listening in?

I just transferred my 2009 photos from one hard drive to another --- LR is putting them in random dates/years anywhere from 2009 to 2017!
