Re: Image Capture does not save created date.

I did a little searching on the internet and found that one of the recent updates to the Mac operating system caused this issue when saving to external drives. Today I downloaded photos I took in the last 2 weeks to the internal hard drive. The date created and modified are the dates that the pictures were taken. I was then able to move the photos to an external drive without issue.

Thanks for the responses,


Good to know, thank you.

On which MacOS does this happen (for you)?

My last download from my iPhone 7+ straight to an external HDD dates from Oct 2nd and didn't have the problem you described. Will check next time I do one.

I did notice though, that Image Capture does sometimes download the same photos a second (or third or fourth) time when downloading from my iPhone 7+, but never from my iPad mini 3 & 5.
