        // gets the date from [FileInfo]
        String modifyDate = image.getModifyDate(true).toString();
        System.out.format("Last modify date using FileInfo: %s\n", modifyDate);

        // gets the date from XMP metadata of [FileInfo] as long as it's not default case
        modifyDate = image.getModifyDate(false).toString();
