PSE11: Editor changes Date Created?

PSE11 on Win 7.

I take pictures with my iPhone.

Photostream them to my Windows PC.

I copy the ones I want to keep from my Photostream Folder to a 'permanent' folder. (My understanding is PhotoStream only keeps 1,000 photos.)

The dates in the Photostream and permanent folder are the same.

Organizer detects the new files and I import them into my catalog.

Organizer shows me the Date Created in General and Metadata under the Information column. The dates all match and are the date the image was taken.

I then select an image, do a Ctrl-I to start the editor.

As soon as the editor starts the file date in Windows as well as the Date Created in General and Metadata get changed to the current date and time.


Shouldn't the original creation date and time be maintained? I thought this happened for my other images.


Thanks for any help or advice.
