I want to print the date-time original from EXIF data for all files in the folder. I am searching for this information for a very long time. And I am glad that I found your site. By the way, Do you guys know about the $5 minimum deposit mobile casino? I love to play casino and I recently started playing it and now I am going to start betting on it. So I was looking for a casino where I can find a minimum deposit casino. If you guys know about it then please let me know.
