Please help explain this.
I have a photo that has the filename containing the date taken. It looks like this when a photo is taken. Does an iPhone or Android automatically name the file with the date taken in it? I also need someone to confirm the the original file date taken that includes the camera maker, ISO, flash, etc., is attached to the original photo.
My problem is, some photos were added into Google Drive and Google Photos. When making a copy, it changed the date and I must have done some photo edits and created some shadowing. This shadowing and date changes make it appear as if it a different photo.
You see the issue is this: the original was taken by boyfriend but since dates changed and shadowing occurred, he is now convinced this photo was taken another time, and that the shadowing is two men on my couch. Our photo was taken with me in a particular outfit. Now he is convinced I was showing the outfit off to two imaginary men on our couch. Even the actual photo appears the same as the original, except for dates and the "shadow men". He is still convinced I'm lying.
Can someone please explain meta date/time file and the difference in modified, created, and date taken. It's hard for me to explain, and he is convinced I'm lying. I have tried to explain that when the photo is taken it creates the file information that doesn't change, but it appears it can be. I have the original photo and it shows date and time and camera info. In fact the JPG filename also contains the date/time.
Please help and explain it as elementary as you can as he and I are not very technical or photographers. This has destroyed a relationship and I'm so tired of being called a liar. The file name looks like
IMG_20170117_184947.jpg. Please explain or show how this happens and a way to confirm the edited photo is simply the original and the edits are not what he thinks.
