It would be something like this:

        Const DATE_TAKEN As Integer = &H9003
        Dim img As Image = Image.FromFile("C:\IMG00001.jpg")
        Dim dateTaken As String

        If img.PropertyIdList.Contains(DATE_TAKEN) Then
            Dim pitem As PropertyItem
            pitem = img.GetPropertyItem(DATE_TAKEN)
            dateTaken = Encoding.UTF8.GetString(pitem.Value, 0, pitem.Value.Length)
        Else
            dateTaken = "Not available"
        End If

        Console.WriteLine("Date Taken: {0}", dateTaken)

Open in new window

The CodeProject link I posted basically wraps that into a nice class.

If you follow the link,  click on the "Browse Code" Tab near the top, and select "ExifReader.vb", you can see hundreds more of the tag codes have been entered for you.
