I have a product image catalogue and i'd like to display the Uploaded date of the image:

I can see on the media library it displays on-top of the item: Uploaded on: April 15, 2021 as an exmaple but how do I access that? in my templated files

If you have the attachment ID, you can just use get_the_date():

<?php echo get_the_date( '', $attachment_id ); ?>

If you leave the first argument blank, e.g. '', then it will use the date format from settings. If you don't want that, then provide a PHP date format.
