Hi

If you go to usa.canon com and search for 'a590', click on the link for the camera then click on 'drivers and downloads', now you will see the user manual in PDF format 4th on the list. You will find the instructions on pg 22:

Put the camera in shooting mode, set to auto, then press "Func Set" and use the down arrow to scroll down to the bottom row. Use the left/right arrow keys to unhighlight the date/time stamp and put it on "L" for the highest resolution setting for your camera.

Hope this helps. Good luck from Darntoothysam com (an affordable digital camera repair business)

    Hi

    "Thanks for trying?" This is the exact instructions so that you may remove the date/time stamp. Did these steps not work? If so please let me know if you need further assistance.

How to set date stamp on a a590?


The date stamp will only work when the camera's resolution is set to postcard mode. Press Func/set, scroll down to the bottom, then across to the icon with the clock and mountain. It will say "postcard". Press Func/set again. Then press Menu, scroll down to "Date stamp" and across to select date or date and time, then press menu again

How do you set the date/time stamp on photos for the Canon A590


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 get date and time on photo after downloading using canon A590 IS


Hi,

The only way to get the date and time on the pictures now is to use a photo editing program that has a text option. (e.g. Paint, Photoshop, etc.)

What you need to do if you want the date and time is to use the menu options on your camera to select it. Then when you download them the date and time will be on them.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I received a canon powershot as a gift last year and am just now really starting to use it. The pictures seem fine, but the it seems like I am frequently requested to put in the date and time (i.e. about...


There is a button battery in your camera (CR1220) that remembers the date and other settings when you remove the main batteries. It probably needs to be replaced. It's in a slide-out holder next to the AA batteries (see page 184 in the manual).

You turn on the date stamp by using the photo size settings. Press the Function key and scroll down to the bottom item (usually L). Then scroll over to the Date Stamp icon (to the right of the L, M1, M2, M3, S options). Press the Function/Set key again.

Canon powershot a590 IS lcd screen


I had this same problem. Once I got over about 1200 pictures, the screen just turned black, and the only setting that would work where I could see the lcd screen was the easy setting. I had read somewhere that this was due to the amount of pictures the camera had "counted", even if those pictures had been downloaded and erased from the camera. So I decided to reset the camera. Go to the tools list in the menu, scroll down to "reset all", and when it prompts if you want to "reset settings to default" click ok. This worked for me, and all of my settings - sunset, landscape, etc. - parameters in any of the settings (shutter speed, lighting, etc.) those will have to be reset.
