Re: setting dates to pictures

Choose MENU and TAB SETUP, you can choose the pattern of the file name. for example - "my picture XX" when XX represents a serial number. im not sure if auto date insert is possible, but check menual carefully, it may surprise us both.

Delete date from photo

That is correct. The date setup only affects pictures when they are taken; it will not alter pictures that have already been taken.

If you want to remove the date from a picture that already has it, you have to remove it the same way you would remove any other unwanted object from the picture.

I have a Lumix DMC Z57 and would like to set it so when I take a picture the date the date will appear on the picture. Is this possible?

HMMM, I know the date is recorded on the digital file when it was taken and what the camera settings were. I know when I transfer mine to the hard drive i organise bu the date taken. so this info is there in the meta data recorded with each exposure. It sounds like you want it displayed on the pictures Too?
In Picasa( the free google software) File info is displayed at the bottom of each phota and a right click on the image and selecting properties reveals the meta data Camera date, date digitised, modified ect.

I want to switch off the date stamp in my pictures taken with A480, please.

Press Menu, scroll down to "Date stamp" and across to select off, date or date and time, then press menu again. The date stamp only works in Postcard mode, so if you set a different picture resolution, that will also stop the pictures being date stamped.

5. Take a picture.

6. Turn the mode dial button to view mode.

7. Look at the latest picture that you have taken.

That is all.

I accidentally set the date imprint on my camera. I'm wondering if there is a way to get the date taken off of the front of the pictures I have already taken.

From the manual, "Imprinted dates form a permanent part of image data and cannot be deleted."

The best you can do it to make sure that Date Imprint is turned off for future pictures. The camera still records date/time info into each picture file, and many printing programs can imprint that onto the picture at printing time. The good ones print it on the back, so as not to interfere with the image. Either way, you can always add the date to the picture, but you can't remove it once it's there.

Hello I need help, How would I know the pictures

First of all, your camera would have to have the correct date and time set on it before the picture was taken. Then, when the pic is downloaded to your computer, you can place the cursor over the picture file and the date and other info will pop up.

In the Camera Settings there is an option to Enable/Disable the date stamp. Look for that option and enable it to get the date on your clicked pics. In the settings only you will find the clock settting / date/time settings to adjust the date and time. Refer your manual.

Canon sd 750 how to put the date in the picture?

here is the solution:
The date and time can be included on the pictures taken only with the camera in postcard mode. You must also activate the date stamp option in the menu.
To set the camera into postcard mode, press the [Func.] button on the camera, then use the [arrow down] key to go down to the last option in the menu, and there you can choose the [Postcard mode]. Press [Func.] again to exit the function menu.
To set the date and time stamp, press the [Menu] button and then use the [arrow down] button to go to the [Date stamp] option in the menu. You can set this to "Date" or "Date & Time". Press the [Menu] button again to exit the menu.
