You'll have to load the picture onto a computer and read the EXIF data. Most photo editing programs can do this. If you don't have one, post the picture here and we can give you the info.

I'm on 10.5.6 and doing this does not give me the date the photo was taken.

Are you sure about this?

Did your Mac come with iPhoto? It will read the EXIF information.

thanks for the response everyone.

I am aware of iphoto...but i believe the date given in iphoto (cmmd+i), is the date the picture was imported, not when the picture was taken.

Maybe this will be the new thing that people ask Apple for in a new firmware update now. I have a 3 year old Nextel phone that I use now (until the new iphone comes out in June) that save the picture default name to the date and has a dash to indicate how many pictures were on that date (Apr20-001, Apr20-002, etc). Maybe in 3.1 you'll be able to tell the date of the picture right on the phone. It doesn't seem to be a hard thing to do

Unless you modify it, the EXIF is of the date the photograph was taken. Check it for yourself.

You don't have to send them to your computer anymore. I made an iPhone app to solve this problem - check it out here https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/phot...8393?ls=1&mt=8

There's one EXIF app called Lab for 99 cents and I really like that one. Do a search for EXIF and you'll find a few free ones. Good luck.
