A FM by default should show the file dates, not the image creation time.
FMs also can display the creation time.

I suspect you need to make a tool first.

$ cat /usr/local/bin/exiftool-wrapper 
exiftool "$@"
echo -e "\nPush a key to exit."
read -n1 char

Typ:     Command
Name:    exiftool
Key:     Escape
Icon:    emblem-photos
Command: roxterm -e exiftool-wrapper %f

Select the pic and push the Escape-Key

Thunar, Rodent and SpaceFM provide to delete by keystroke, other FMs
usually just move to trash. I prefer CLI over FMs, but from the FMs
SpaceFM is my favourite FM.

Perhaps this topic fits better to the user mailing list.
