whatsapp date loss in import (from android to mac)

  Kat Shepherd 20:46 27 Oct 2019

Hi. I have got my macbook air (Photos) sorted to import photos from my android phone (motog5). It imports the camera photos fine, but when I import whatsapp photos, it lumps them all together as being taken on the day I imported them (and I do this every few months so its usually 300 photos all at once). This is excessively annoying when trying to make photo albums, or hunt down a photo from a particular date. Any tips on how to get whatsapp images to import to Photos with the right date?
