Created an attachment (id=29536)

Photo created in 2004 restored in 2008 using scp

- If metadata are not available, we use file creation time stamp instead file
Modification time stamp.

I suspect this should use the lesser value of ctime or mtime and not just ctime

When I restore a photo from a remote archive using rsync or scp, it will have
the ctime set to the current time (now: when the inode is set) ie 2008, but the
mtime will be match the mtime on the original file system (ie 2004).

This is causing me issues with my imported files without metadata are always
set to ctime, whilst mtime is generally more accurate for a backup file.  See
