I have an app that needs to read the file creation time from a jpg on a website.
The jpg has a constant filename but is updated every 5 minutes or so.
I want to read the creation time and compare with the previously downloaded image time to ascertain uniqueness.

How do I get the remote files creation time?


If the jpg has EXIF data you might get the date/time stamp from there. You can use a free component, simage to read the EXIF data (if present)
