Exif.Image.DateTime is the more correct date for when the image itself was
I've just checked that and found this explanation to be correct.
But nevertheless, Gimp rewrites some other EXIF-Information it rather
shouldn't, like Fnumber. Identifying the orignal photo with ImageMagick
identify -format "%[Exif:fnumber]" photo.jpg
yields e.g. 37/10, whereas the same command on the Gimp JPEG export
yields f/3.7. I admit that's smarter, but has to be dealt with in my
script. There are a few other data entries which are also deleted or
When modifiying a JPEG image, Gimp should restrict rewriting of EXIF
entries to those that have really been altered.
