In order to get the date stamp on the pictures, the resolution/size has to be set to "Postcard". Look at the menu and you will see L, M1, M2, M3, S, and Postcard. Then you can turn on the date stamp option.

Hello, I have a Canon Power Shot sd1000 Digital ELPH. I cant get the time and date stamp to print on the pictures. How can I fix this?


If the pictures are the ones you have shot without time and date stamp, you can't add them by your camera then. You only can add them by your computer.

How do I get the time and date to stamp on my pictures?


Time date stamp only works and is selectable in "postcard" (1200 pixel width) resolution. First select this resolution, then time date stamp should be selectable in the menus.

This function can only be set in Postcard mode- Press Func., scroll down to the bottom, then across to the mountains with clock icon, then set. Now press menu, scroll down to date, and set date or date and time, then menu again.

I am trying to add the date/time stamp so that it appears on the picture and can't seem to do this.I have the Cannon Power Shot A560


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.

Cannot turn date stamp on in menu settings.


Date stamp is only possible when you set the resolution (picture size) at "Postcard 1600x1200" option, if the date stamp is set to "Date & Time" or "Date" option

Power Shot SD550 Date Stamp


Dear BethSmith,
I have had the same problem for a long time.  It has nothing to do with the battery, etc..  It has to do with the software of the camera.

You are only able to have time stamps on the photos when you are in the postcard mode.  (resolution will be set to 1600x1200, at fine setting)  Check out page 29 and 39 of Advance user manual!

Good luck,
Shah
