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.

Most modern Digital Cameras dont actually stamp the image anymore. the data is recorded in "metadata" in the image file. But if you use the ZoomBrowser software that came with your camera to download images you can do the following:

1. Adding a Time Stamp to a Printed Photo:

After selecting Print, check the box(es) "Shooting Date" and/or "Shooting Time."

2. Adding a Time Stamp to the .JPEG Image

Select "Insert Text...," click in the image where you want the stamp placed then click "Import Shooting Date/Time."

How do you BURN the date and time on the photo pixels


Canon S3 IS cannot stamp date and time directly on photos. The date and time data is inserted digitally in the photo files as EXIF data which can be read by many software products. Try loading your photos with Picasa for example and you can see the date and time photo was taken.

Need some1 2 explaint to me how I get the d&t printed on the photo for a canon powershot 1S camera please


you can Print the date and time to the picture when you take the print of it. It does not embed the date and time data into the image itself.

From the manual please read this
" Setting the date and time settings does not cause the date/time stamp to appear on images"

To print with date
This option will be available only for printing on card size paper

In the print order screen, select [Style] and press the SET button

You will get 3 options to set
1) Image
a) Standard b) multiple
2) Borders
a) Borderless b) Bordered
3) Date
a) On ( Adds the date to the print )
b) Off ( Prints without the date )

Select Date option as On and the date will be printed on the picture.


still you are having any doubts, please refer to user manual and Direct Print User Guide
which i am giving as links here.
