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. If you don't want this data attached to the photo, you'll have to use a photo editor capable of altering this metadata. With most programs you won't be able to remove the data completely, but you should be able to set it something like midnight on January 1, 2000.

I took pictures with my Pentax K10D camera, using a Kingston SD HC 16 GB card. Throughout the picture taking session I constantly viewed the images and occasionally deleted a few. These were all indoor...


Did you try to change the date? either on the camera or on the computer... it might be that otherwise data won't get recognized if the date range is too far out. If you really deleted it from the card, I am afraid it's really gone. If you look at the card via "My computer" and do a detailed file list with details and dates, you might still find the missing data. Good luck.

How do i just set camera to put date on pictures


On page 72 of the manual is printed how to imbed date and time in the image data.
If the date and time are shown on the screen, or when you review the picture on a computer, I can't find.
Digital cameras use Meta Data, exif data to keep the important information in the picture. This can be viewed with the appropriate software. Not many cameras put the data visible in the picture that was shot.

How do I date stamp photos?


photos are our archives of memories but sometime we do forget the taken date of an image. Sometime we feel a need of exact date and time the image was taken. The available meta data of an image not always give us good result and we need to be somewhat techie to understand that. So, to keep thing simple it will be great idea to put a date-time stamp on it.

photo date-stamp helps you here. It allows you to put date-time stamp in an image as well as a batch of images. You can choose color, font and font size to style the time stamp. It also allows you to chose the stamp position such as Top Left, Top Right, Bottom Left and Bottom Right.....


thanks.

Hi I have a Sony Cyber shot digital camera model DSC-S700. I want to know how can I get the date on photographs which I shoot and also is there any manual available for it which I can download.


You can find the manual here:
http://www.docs.sony.com/release/DSCS650_EN_ES.pdf
I'm afraid the camera does not have this date stamp feature. It even says so in the manual, so we can stop searching for it! (Page 28). You may be interested in an essay I wrote about date stamps, I'll paste it here:

How do I get the date printed on my photo?

I'm sorry, but many cameras don't bother to have this feature. 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. Very often the software that came with your camera, such as Sony's Picture Motion Browser will print the date stamp on the printer from the EXIF data.

Some Canon cameras can add a date stamp just like the old days, some can't do it at all, and some do it ONLY in 'postcard' mode (it's one of the resolution settings). It's interesting that they limit it to this size only when they could quite easily have done it on all sizes, and I think this is to emphasise its novelty value rather than a serious feature, for the reasons I gave above.

I have discovered that there are softwares which can add the EXIF date to the actual visible image, there's one here: http://gphotoshow.com/exif-iptc-watermarker.php and it is billed as a watermarking tool. One of your choices for the input data is the EXIF date within the file. It works, and it's free, but it does nag you to pay from time to 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.

Camera resets DATE and Time to Jan 2002 when


Some of these cameras cannot save the date, and has no internal battery to save the data. The best solution I have use is to buy another battery with these kinds of cameras and always have one charging, or take two batteries when you take pictures.
These older point and shoot cameras are nice, and slower than the newer ones, but will not save the data unless you keep the main battery in it, or replace the one to be charged with another battery within a very short time.

Date & time does not appear on prints


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.

Lost date and time data


I had the same problem, the best solution that I found, was to make sure that I put the new batteries in with 30 secs, and the date etc, remained at the correct time.
