Trying to access DateTaken of a .jpg file


Recommended Posts

I hope this is the right place for this question. I am currently reading through the tutorials on w3schools for XHTML, javascript and ASP. I am (had been ?) an experienced C++ programmer in a Unix environment and "retired" when my kids were born and now I'm trying to get my brain functioning again. So, while I understand coding, I'm learning these methods.Specifically, I'm trying to find out if the "date taken" attribute of a .jpg file is available via ASP (ASP File Object tutorial page). I see "DateCreated", "DateLastModified", etc. I want to add the date taken to a caption for photos being displayed. If there is another way to get this using some other language/method, I'm okay with that too.Please redirect me if appropriate. I searched the entire forum for this topic but couldn't find it.Thanks.Lisa

The filesystemobject will just give you access to the basic information about the file. For image data specifically, when you take a picture with a digital camera it will save a bunch of metadata called EXIF, which would include the date the picture was taken (also camera model, settings, etc).http://www.google.com/search?client=opera&...-8&oe=utf-8
