Is it possible to download a photo received in a text message and determine the date that the photo was taken? I have an iPhone.

Cameras usually append EXIF information to photos they take. You may use EXIF Viewer(on Mac) or other softwares to view if there is EXIF.

  • And if the photo does not have EXIF data embedded into it, then the answer is no, there is no way to determine the date the photo was taken.

    If there is no EXIF data, try asking the person who took it. Not too hard. Jan 29, 2012 at 13:41
