I think that's because in the recycle bin you selected folders and JPEG files.
Just select all the JPEG files and see if properties displays.

Scratch that idea, seems you can't select multiple items in recycle bin and get properties

Once any files go to Recycle Bin will not have any properties.

To know the properties, you need to restore back to original.
