how could I say 'How long ago was this photo taken?' I.e. Single event, not duration.
This question relates to:French lesson "Expressing for + [duration] with either pendant, durant, depuis or pour (prepositions of time)"

Bonjour Jay !
I'd say the most colloquial way to ask this is the simple:
Quand est-ce que cette photo a été prise ?
Used on its own, how long ago? could be il y a combien de temps ?
However, it would sound a bit clumsy (though not completely incorrect) to use it in a longer question -> Il y a combien de temps que cette photo a été prise ?
I hope that's helpful!Bonne journée !
