Picasa uses your PC's folders. if you edit the folder name in picasa, it will change the actual folder name. and vice-versa.

No correct time and date

The manual, does not say a thing about date and time, so my guess is only when transfered to the computer time and date is added.
I sometimes use a GPS, that when not connected to enough satelites prints an old date and wrong time to the pictures. I do correct that with a programm called "EXIF Date Changer" because after some time you never will know the correct date, because you forgot the GPS receiver messed things up.

I have a new 27 imac

I would suggest that the problem is not your imac but the camera have you checked the date is correct on your camera. The imac takes the date as far as I understand it from the Exif data on the picture which is written by the camera.

You cannot change the dates on the taken photos using the camera.
Copy the pictures to your PC, and use a graphic editor to put the new date.
It is a very difficult task to change the date displayed. Therefore insert a button-like graphic on top of the date and put the correct date over that.

Dear Expert, I have a problem with my Samsung L100 camera with the time and date. Somehow when I have uploaded the pictures onto my computer it gives the date of the future for example: May 21st 2013....

The date of your pictures is from the date you took it, So, it must be that last year, May 2010, when took those pictures, your camera's date was not set to 2010. You must also know that when a camera's battery is totally drained and stocked for a long time, the date will be reset. So next time make sure that your date is always right on your camera. =)

But here is a good news. You can just change the dates now after downloading it to your computer. Go to the picture you want to change the date, right click on it and choose properties. Click on details, then "date taken" and change it to any date you want.

I hope this helped you.

Hello I need help, How would I know the pictures

First of all, your camera would have to have the correct date and time set on it before the picture was taken. Then, when the pic is downloaded to your computer, you can place the cursor over the picture file and the date and other info will pop up.

Can't get the Date off the Pictures

First you have to go to the set up menu and set the correct time and date, then you can go back to the settings and select OFF for time and date. If you do not set the correct time and date , that default date stays in the picture.

Adding the date to pictures

Curiously, the first pictures I took with camera had the date stamp on the pics so somehow the date did appear but probably disappeared when the batteries were changed.
