Time stamp on jpg

I am trying to find the time that a jpg was created. I am using the
File.atime(file) code. My problem is it will tell me the date that it
was created but the time is 00:00:00, I was wanting to know if anyone
else has ever came across this problem. I am using ruby 1.86
Thanks

try mtime
atime is the time last accessed, not created

Depending on where the JPEG came from, you might try extracting the EXIF
data too. If the image is coming from a camera, it’s very likely to
have a timestamp for when it was captured.

Search Rubyforge for ‘exif’, there are a number of projects.
