How do you turn off the date stamp from appearing on the photos?

I have tried to search the menu item to remove the date stamp from the pictures but I cannot find it. Can someone give me instructions on how to turn the date stamp off? We no longer have our manual. Thanks

How do I put the date stamp on my pictures?

Camera records the date and time each picture is taken, storing this information somewhere in the JPG file, so you can stamp photos after uploading them on a PC. You can use Time To Photo software. It can stamp photos automatically in a batch.

Turn off Timestamp

Are you sure the time stamp is visible in the pictures, when you put them on a computer or when you print them?
I only see the time stamp visible in the play back menu.
To change that, you only have to press the display button, when viewing the pictures you took. Don't be afraid to lose the date and time, because it is in every picture, hidden for sight, but always there if you want to see it.
If this is not what you mean, please let me know, I will search more.

I have a Canon SX30. I happened to turn on the Date/Time and now apparently ALL the photos have this imbedded in them. The date and time appear in the photo when I view them on my computer. I had...

The date time stamp is permanent. Once its set and you take a picture it will stay on it even if you turn the time stamp off in the camera (this will prevent it from occurring to future pictures).

To remove it from the pictures you already have you can either crop the image so that the stamp no longer appears in the frame you want, or use a clone or blur tool in an image editing program to erase the stamp.

To turn it off in your model, press menu, use the side to side arrows to select the camera tab, then use the up or down arrows to select date stamp.

Use the left or right arrows to chose off instead of date or date and time.

Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

When I print photos, it doesn't show the date on the photo. Also , when I scroll down to Date/Stamp on the menu, it is always "off". And I can't change the setting. Help

You haven't said what make/model your camera is, so it is hard to advise.

Without knowing the camera, I am guessing that you may be in the wrong mode when trying to change this setting. You won't be able to change it while reviewing pictures already taken. You can only change it for pictures to be taken subsequently. Once pictures are taken, you won't be able to add the date stamp, nor remove it if it has been stamped.

It may be that it won't allow you to set this if you haven't already set the date and time in your camera. I can't see why this setting would be shown at all if it was not possible to turn it on (i.e. if your camera did not have this feature).

How do i remove the time and date at bottom right corner of picture.

Manual can be downloaded free from here ....

Basically the date stamp can be turned on / off as an option on the RECORD menu. Page 33 of the manual explains it (with pictures).

Note that if the option is turned on, it states that the date / time is permanently embedded in the picture.

Hope this helps

Removing the date stamp on photos

If you mean, removing the date stamp after it's already on the picture -- the only way I know of is the hard way, using image processing software such as Photoshop to change the date stamp pixels to the surrounding color.

If you mean, turning off the date stamp option so it doesn't get added to the picture in the first place -- I'm not familiar with your particular camera but the first place I'd look would be in the setup menu.

you can only do date and time stamp under function button go to bottom where you can change size of pictures -go to right to W or wide-this is only setting you can do date time stamp on-when you change pic size and go back to menu you will see it highlighted and you can now turn it on-equals about a 2-3 megapixel size picture only-also just leave settings alone and have printer add it-date and time our always in pic data and most printers can add it

Canon SD 1000 time and date stamp on downloaded photo

Set the resolution to PostageCard (1600x1200).
Many of these cameras have only ONE RESOLUTION setting which allows you to have a date/ date and time stamp on the file, which will print on the viewed or printed photo.

How to do it:
Turn the camera on M mode.
Use the func. set.
go down the menu to the resolution settings. (on the bottom of menu).
Pick only the postagecard (1600x1200) setting.

I also was like you, and had an awful time with a camera I was fixing. I then looked it up on the Net and found an online user manual for the Canon SD 500, which should be basically the same.
