Batch date in iphoto

Update:12-10Source: network consolidation
I have used an Automator script to batch time and date in iPhoto when the usual methodology within iPhoto's batching did not work adequately. Can you help me with an Automator script and teach me how to install it for iPhoto to recognize it within iPhoto>Services?

The Best Answer

Scanned photos do not have an EXIF Capture Date field in the file like photos taken with a digital camera do.  Therefore iPhoto uses the file created date or import date for those photos.
You will have to group all 1999 photos into an album, arrange them in the order you want and then use the Photos ➙ Batch Change ➙ Date menu option and add a 1 minute or so between photos.
Then do the same for the next year's photos.
