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.

The time and date are set on my Coolpix S230. The Date Imprint is on and it puts the date on pictures. However, when I download the pictures to my computer, the Date Taken info is missing.


What software are you using? If you are using the ViewNX 2 from Nikon (updated with the patches), it should have the correct date taken information in the EXIF data. However, if you are using the older ViewNX software, then the software can corrupt the EXIF information or merely fails to download it with the picture.

I'd suggest you first check if your software is up to date. Try here: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61/session/L3RpbWUvMTQ2NTUzMDUwMy9zaWQvTHNYeVZGU20%3D for the current versions of various Nikon software.

Please add a comment with the software version that you are using for extra support. I hope this helps.

How do I get the date printed on my photo?

I'm sorry, but very likely you can't. The thing is, this was a useful feature on film photos, but the concept has been overtaken by technology, and is no longer relevant. Heh - you probably disagree with me, so let me explain that fully! When you take a photo with a digital camera, the current date and time are automatically stored in the photo file. In some cameras, it will be the same as the file date. Some cameras date the file with the date of download rather than the date of capture, but the date inside the file will always be the capture date. The date of capture is one of the items of EXIF data. You can read about this 'metadata' on wikipedia.

So how does EXIF data fulfill the benefits of the old 'print on film' date? From the point of view of indexing your library and simply not forgetting when the photo was taken, the EXIF data should always be present in the file, unless you choose to erase it. Thus, you will never lose track of the date of capture; if you have the image, you have the date. You can read the date with many tools, and in fact even Windows explorer will tell you the date if you simply hover over the picture. Here's an example; the bubble help shows the time of capture where the picture was taken, (windows shows me the time of capture in my own time zone).

What about legal proof of something? Sorry, you can't really do that any more. You couldn't have done it if you'd printed it on the image, either; it's just too easy to fake. The date of capture is editable, so it doesn't prove anything. If you need proof, get legal advice... in the heat of the moment, include a cellphone in-frame showing the date and time; you could fake that too, but it would be much harder.

Oh, you wanted your dates printed on physical pictures? Find a print shop that will print the EXIF capture date on the reverse of your photo; that way the face of your picture won't be spoiled. There is software that will print index sheets of your images and list their capture dates and times, too.

I wanted to know how do i get the time/date on my pictures when i upload them on to the computer


The time and date (and a lot more) are stored with every picture when taken, and the data remain with the picture when transferred. Just about any photo viewer should be able to show you the so-called "EXIF" data. For example, in Windows Explorer if you simply hover the mouse over a picture it will show the date/time it was taken.

If you want the date stamp to appear when you print, please refer to the documentation for whatever program you're using to print. Depending on the program and printer, you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

I use my Nikon D50 for work and I am now required to have a date on all my pictures. Does the Nikon D50 have a facility to do this? If so how is it done?


All digital pictures include Exif Data which shows when the picture was taken and using what camera. Most photo edit programs like Picasa etc will show this data very readily. The times of printing a date onto the photo are gone, though there may be a setting to do it on your camera.

DATE ON PICTURES


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.

Won't print date on picture


Hi there.
You have to set the time and date to show on the picture using the camera's menu before you take the picture.
You cannot add the time and date to a picture after you have taken it except with photo editing software.
Go into the camera's menu and select the setup option, scroll down to imprint (or something like that) and set it to date and time, press OK or save and from now on the date and time will automatically added to your pictures when you take them.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Date and timestamps


Is there a way to select a group of pictures on the camera and give them all the same date and/or time stamp?
No
Each JPG will show the date on which it was taken, but not on the photo, it will show it on your computer under the column "date picture taken"
