How to extract timestamps from TIFF files

Hi all,

I want to get time when image data was obtained to plot intensity over time. Now I cannot figure out how to do this seemingly simple task. My camera does not spit out date and time when the image was taken in EXIF, so I cannot use that info and I need to use file's meta data instead. I figured I can print date and time of files in a directory in Command Prompt (I use Windows) and it seems there is a way to execute the same DOS command from Igor and feed the output to Igor, but I wonder if there is an easier way to do this.

I appreciate any feedback.

Thank you,

Ken

Thank you very much! The function worked quite nicely after I figured out the right data type (/I/U).
