I am trying to find out when some of the pictures I own have been taken. In Mac OS X, in Finder, I am looking at the photo. There is date created, but it is not correct. I assume it is the date when I copied the photo to Mac. The picture is taken in 2008, and the date is in 2009. I thought digital cameras store date when the picture is taken. There is all kind of metadata for the picture, but not date taken. I have checked for pictures taken by different cameras.
According to Exchangeable image file format article on Wikipedia,
right click the image > Get Info > More Info should do it, but it does not. I can not believe that none of the cameras saved date taken.
Am I doing something wrong? How to see when the picture was taken?
I have access to Mac, Windows and Linux machines, if it is easier to see in any of them.
