Whenever I change my timezone in PSE9, the times on the photos in the catalog all change... How can I stop this? I travel enough that I need to be changing my local time... but I can't have my photos constantly changing times, which means they often shift dates, etc...

Images have an embedded time, which generally includes the time zone (you generally have such settings on camera). When the Organizer displays the time of the image, it displays it based on what the local time would have been (based on your computer time zone settings).

For most folks, this is just fine, but I can see where in your case this makes sense. Perhaps we could add an option to choose between Local and Absolute time (though it would probably be best to also display the time zone next to the image when using Absolute time).
