  • Digital Photo information

    I have a photo here taken around 2003 / 2004 but because the pics / folder has been copied over from computer to computer the stated date is quite current.

    Is there a program that can tell what date it was originally taken ?

    I have seen pictures listed with what camera, etc, etc but don't know which one it was .

    What version of Windows are you using?

      If your camera stores EXIF metadata (most do), you can read it with several image viewers.

      Here's a free online version:

        Right-click, properties - summary - advanced.

        Or use an exif tag reader.

          Another free, very popular one is IrfanView (pronounce "EarfanView"). It's been around a long time and is updated frequently. Highly recommended.

            How can it be modified before it was created ?

            Went to Lazlo's online site and got pages of info on what camera etc etc but no date ?

              Created is the time and date that file was created - i.e. copied to it's present location. 'Modified' is carried-over with the file from location to location so remains un-changed.

              EDIT: Just to add - if you set the folder to show 'details' in the folder view, then choose view - choose details you get a big list of attributes to show and one of those will be 'date picture taken on' so you can filter the photos by date taken.

                John, old boy -- on that link I sent there's a big block of text labeled
                "
                Online EXIF Viewer
                "

                Or just click here: http://regex.info/exif

                Click the button on the second row that says "Choose File".

                Or just send me the damn image...

                  Yep, that is why I asked about the OS. Win 7 can access the EXIF data for any image that contains it and list it along with the other details.

                    Does it actually DO anything?

                    I tried it, and every time I wanted to DO anything, it said the "outside program" for that was not present...... Like editing...... it wanted to know what outside editor I wanted to use..... I had thought it WAS one..... silly me.

                    it got deleted.

                      It is a file viewer and format converter. That is what Paint Shop Pro started out as too.

                        Jerry,
                        Yes it's a nice small program and very fast, not as powerful as other but I prefer this over Painshop Pro as PSP takes ages to load, Ifranview load at the click of the mouse.

                        If I need to do some editing then it's an early version of PSP probably the same as Evan uses as the later versions are total bloatware but for just looking at pictures this IV is very fast and simple.

                        When you down load the program look for the addon pack and download that as well, this is probably what was missing from when you had a look?

                          As others already said, it is meant for viewing and light editing (cropping, resizing, watermarking etc.) and batch processing of images (very fast at that, too). I generally use it for batch jobs where I have hundreds of photos and I want to resize them to have one side for example 1024 pixels.
