Does anyone know of a program that will show the date and time of a digital image?
I am trying to find out the exact time and date a picture was taken and am not having any luck finding a program and am not sure what it is called to google it properly. Any help or a point in the right direction would be appreciated.
Thank you.

Regards,
T

If you right-click on the photo and select properties, choose the Info tab and this is a sample of the info you can get.  It does however depend whether the image was saved with this info intact:-

Original date/time: 2007:05:20 09:03:34
Exposure time: 1/25
Shutter speed: 1/25.00
F-stop: 5.6
ISO speed: 400
Focal length: 60.0000
Flash: Not fired
Exposure mode: Auto
White balance: Auto
Orientation: Top-left
Aperture: 4.9709
Exposure bias: 0.0000
Metering mode: Pattern
Exposure program: Aperture priority
Digitized date/time: 2007:05:20 09:03:34
Modified date/time: 2007:05:20 09:03:34

moorhouselondon is mostly correct, but I don't think he emphasized the fact that most digital photos, especially those taken with older and/or cheaper cameras, do not have the data intact.

If the photo is on a website, it is not likely that the data is there, if the photo is over 5 years old, it is not likely the data is there.

Good luck!

Of course it also depends on whether the camera owner was bothered about setting up the date/time when buying it (or after replacing/recharging the batteries when they conked out).  Thumbs Plus also allows you to strip out the info so there's quite a few things getting in the way of your aim.
