Upload Wizard picks wrong date from last edit instead of the creation date in metadata
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

Hello, for some time I noticed Upload Wizard generate date in the template "information" from the wrong metadata fied, example:
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Harbour_of_S%C3%A8te_and_trawler.jpg
the date and hour quoted in the template is "6 April 2019, 17:52:18", it seems that matches with the field named "File change date and time" in the metadata. Howether this is the moment when I generated the file on my computer from RAW with Photoshop software.
The right time can be found in the field "Date and time of data generation"

I think it is a quite serious issue.

It should've been solved 3 days ago see here

Apparently the problem persists because I uploaded the image today
