Date / Time printed on image?

Hi All, I am having a Canon Power Shot A80 Digital Camera. When I download the picture to my PC, I am not getting the date / time printed on the images. In the camera, there is option to do it while printing the image through the printer. Can anyone answer, how to get the date / time printed on the image, when I download it to the computer. Awaiting for response.

Re: Date / Time printed on image?

There are some third-party software programs that will extract the date/time info from your EXIF data stored in the images and apply them to the image for printing. There are a couple threads here and on dpreview.com about them. You can also use the ZoomBrowser software that came with your A80 to do some limited date/time printing for specific images. It's not the standard format (uses a box w/ drop shadow) but it is another option.

Can I get a time date stamp on my power shot s80? if yes, how do I do it. I went through the menu functions with no luck. Thanks, Larry


To the best of my knowledge no Canon models enable putting time and/or date directly onto images.
However, you can do it in Zoom Browser - one of the software programs that comes with the camera.
Process.
1. Open an image you want to print out or save with date/time printed .
2. Click on Edit > Insert Text
3. In the drop down window move the cursor (in the form of a cross) to where you want the date/time printed and left click.
4. Click the butoon marked Import Shooting Date/Time - on the right of the window.
The date and time will be printed on the image immediately in a white border the size of which you can adjust.
NB All digital cameras store a great deal of information with the image at the time it is shot. This is known as EXIF data/file and it is the date and time recorded here that will go onto your image i.e. the actual time and date it was taken.

I'have Canon power shot A460 camera.But I can't Add The time/Date Stamp on Pictures


The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

How do i change settings on my dsc-s750 camera to get date and time stamp on pictures?


Hi,
As per page 13 of the user guide (DSC-s750), the camera does not have a feature for superimposing dates on images. You can however, use "Picture Motion Browser" to print and save images with date.
You can download the software from http://www.sony-mea.com/support/download/product/dsc-s750/modelfirst

Date and time will not display on downloaded or printed pictures


For the A80, this feature only works when direct printing from the camera. Read the section of the A80 User Guide dealing with DPOF printing to set this feature up (Page 141 and above). Here's the user guide direct from Canon:

So camera doesn't give live view to take picture? and you can view old / stored  pictures OK, is it?
If yes, then it is problem of CCD imager in Canon A80 and this part needs to be replaced.
Canon will repair your A80 free of cost as per announced scheme of CCD imager support.

Blurry picture on Canon A80


I don't know what you told that technician, but try this. Download some of your pictures and videos to your computer. If the downloaded pictures look fine on your computer, then the technician was right, and it's probably just a loose LCD ribbon cable connection.

BUT if the downloaded pictures also look blurry with stripes, then it's probably a faulty CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. BUT MAKE SURE you tell the technician this time that it is showing up on your DOWNLOADED pictures. I recommend trying again, and hope for a more knowledgeable tech on the line this time. Please check the following two links for more info:
