Hi experts,

How can I find the created date/time of an image on a website,
I can download the image but the image created date will have the date value when I actually downloaded the image, but I want to know the original created date/time of the image file on that web.

I believe you can do that with firefox or chrome

If you have firebug installed in firefox
open firebug, click on the net tab, click on the images tab/button and refresh the page. Expand the image you want the info from, make sure the headers tab is active, and look at "Last-Modified"

You can do the same thing with the chrome developer tools, click on the network image/button, refresh the chrome browser page , go back to the developer tools and click the image you want the info for, click the "headers" tab, then look at if-modified-since
