Yes, that image was taken in 1996. I never claimed it was taken in 2014, only that it was the best photo we had as of 2014.

The images you link to are derived from the same image: “The Hubble images are a few pixels wide. But through a technique called dithering, multiple, slightly offset pictures can be combined through computer-image processing to synthesize a higher-resolution view than could be seen in a single exposure. This series of pictures took four years and 20 computers operating continuously and simultaneously to accomplish.”
