Show the Date stamp on the picture

I want to have the date stamp on my photograph that I have taken. I tried to go the setup menu and look for the date stamp option. However, this option is in gray color and I can't do anything with it. Thank you.

One reason why the date stamp is not showing would be that you have not set the system date/time. The date/time resets everytime you take out the battery. Please go to this link and download the userguide... http://alpha02u.c-wss.com/inc/ApplServlet?SV=WWUCA900 file name : PSS500IXUS500CUG-EN.pdf ...Go to page 26 which will tell you how to set the date/time and then go to page 109,113 for the date/time to be displayed on the photographs. Please tell me if this helps

I want to switch off the date stamp in my pictures taken with A480, please.


Press Menu, scroll down to "Date stamp" and across to select off, date or date and time, then press menu again. The date stamp only works in Postcard mode, so if you set a different picture resolution, that will also stop the pictures being date stamped.

I have a kodak EasyShare C315. I need the date stamp but can't seem to make it work on pictures. I have set and reset it. How do I make it show of pictures?


In any mode, press the MENU button. Use up/down to highlight Setup (three horizontal sliders) and press the OK button. Use up/down to highlight "Date Stamp" and press OK. Make your choice and press OK. The date stamp will only appear on photos taken in the auto mode.

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).

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"
