Hello,

I need to get all the available dates of an image, then choose the minor one and set the exif date of image taken from a camera to the minor one.

How many dates are there, and how can I get them?

For example:
I tried these 3 but they are all empty:

Memo1.Lines.Add(io.Params.EXIF_DateTime);
Memo1.Lines.Add(io.Params.EXIF_DateTimeOriginal);
Memo1.Lines.Add(io.Params.EXIF_DateTimeDigitized);

I don't know if there are others, for example: creation date, modify date..

can you help me? also to set the new date

Hi

The EXIF dates will only be set for images from digital cameras and mobile phones. All files will have a creation and modify date:

Hello,
thanks.
Is there a function to write those 3 dates?
Also, in your experience which is the field used by softwares to "see" that an image changed?
For example, if I rotate an image what field do you think that synology photos uses to reload the image in the cache because it changed?

Please see the example for writing those values at:

To determine when an image has changed in another application, you should just check the File Change Date.
