How to? How to display picture creation date with dir command

I copied files from my iPhone to my hard drive. When I look at the Details view in Windows Explorer I can view a Modified time stamp and a Created time stamp like this:

Name Modified Created
IMG_0175.JPG 12/7/2019 8:33 PM 11/26/2011 11:02 AM


I cannot figure out how to display the Created time stamp in TCC. I have tried all of the dir/t:[a|c|w] options. They all give me what Explorer calls the Modified time stamp. The date I want is the one in the file's EXIF information. Is there a way to display that in TCC?

Thank you,
Jesse Heines

I get three different times from DIR. I don't think any of those is the one you're after but IIRC there was a forum thread about retrieving that info.

Code:
\\zz\c$\users\vefatica\documents> d /t:a dedekind.jpg
2020-01-19  03:35         166,613  dedekind.jpg

\\zz\c$\users\vefatica\documents> d /t:c dedekind.jpg
2015-05-29  13:13         166,613  dedekind.jpg

\\zz\c$\users\vefatica\documents> d /t:w dedekind.jpg
2015-05-29  13:41         166,613  dedekind.jpg
And there's something odd in the snippet above. I haven't gone anywhere near that file in years. The accessed time shown is a time when I was sound asleep. Explorer says "Today, January 19, 2020, 18 hours ago which also puts me out like a light.

The EXIF time stamp is in plain text. It's probably not always in the same location, but if you knew a bit about the format, you might be able to retrieve it with a batch file. Below, I found the offset with a hex editor.

Code:
\\zz\f$\004-pics> set hfile=%@fileopen[DSCN0002.JPG,r,t]

\\zz\f$\004-pics> echo %@fileseek[%hfile,272,0]
272

\\zz\f$\004-pics> echo %@fileread[%hfile,19]

Lots of things access your files without you being involved (for example, Windows Search indexing).

Thank you all for your replies.

@Charles Dye: I have downloaded and installed ImageStuff and it looks great! I didn't know anything about this previously. Thank you for your advice.
