Does anybody get this? Apr 25 I created a poster for a customer save the file as PSD and then a JPG to send to the customer via email.

I noticed the creation date was wrong on the JPG but it was fine on the PSD. So I attempted to save as PNG and that was OK and then I

tried it 3 or 4 times as JPG and there it was: They all had the same creation date and time 4/10/2016 5:51pm.

What gives?

This sounds normal. For image files, Windows will often go to the image metadata and show the date a photo was taken, because this is what the untrained user expects to happen. They expect their photos to be arranged by the holiday or party it belongs to, even if edited. You can change the display to show the actual file date, but that won't change what other people see.

Hi there,

That does not sound right, because it's not a typical experience.
As the creation date is always 4/10/2016 5:51 PM, could you please let us know the exact version of Photoshop and operating system you're using?

Could you you please check the system's date and make sure that it's set to present day?
You may also try resetting the preferences of Photoshop and see if it helps. Preferences in Photoshop


I also found a forum thread similar to this issue, please check here: Date wrong when saving to JPG

Let us know if it helps.
Regards,
Sahil

The creation date is not the same as a last midfield date. 

Which file manager are you using to check dates?

File systems keep many date associations with files.
