The surefire way to have the date show on your pictures is to set your camera's resolution to PostCard Mode and thus record the date stamp on the picture itself.
Your ZoomBrowser software, however can put the date on each of your images.
I am using ZoomBrowser EX ver 5.8 as an example. If yoiur version if different it will still have similar functionality.
You can rename image
files using four different naming schemes:
1. Image Name + Number (e.g. Vacation_001.jpg)
2. Shooting date + Number (e.g. 20080601_001.jpg)
3. Name + Shooting date + Number OR
4. Shooting date + Name + Number
You may choose to do either method 2 or 4 to get the date.
To rename selected images or a group of images
using one of the above naming schemes simply open ZoomBrowser and point it to the folder that contains the images you wish to rename. For this example let's assume it was your recent vacation photos
I would utilize either Zoom
or Scroll mode to view the images on the main screen. Then follow these steps:
1. Click the task panel labeled "View & Classify"
2. Next click the sub panel "Rename Multiple Files"
3. On the left hand panel click Step 1 "Select images"
[Here you can select any or all images in the folder]
4. Next click Step 2 "Specify Rename Settings"
5. Select the way you want the files to be named and enter
the appropriate settings. Note: If you wish to keep the original
file and make a copy with the new naming scheme make
sure you check "Make Copies of files"
6. Lastly click Finish and your newly renamed files will be there
in the folder.
Hopes this helps.
