    Where does this file exist? On your PC? Or online somewhere?

    And the 'date' on a jpeg probably means little.
  2. I think what's being asked is... Ever digital picture records the time and GPS location where it's taken. How does one find that information?

    Not necessarily. If I take a pic with my camera, open it in any editing application, and Save As...That is a new file, and the 'date' has nothing to do with when it was taken in the camera.

    It appears as though "Properties" is missing from the context menu when the OP right clicks on the image.
    What do you see when you right click on the image?
    If you are using Windows 7 here's a link - http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/ie/forum/ie8-windows_other/windows-7-my-computer-right-click-properties/c135b2d4-33b8-4000-811c-104acdbfd0a0?auth=1 - that might help restore "Properties" to the context menu.
  5. Look for 'Metadata' stored in an exif file. This will help: http://www.findexif.com/
