Image size (L, M1, M2, M3, S, Postcard) has to be set to Postcard. Press Function button, scroll down to bottom on left side, select Postcard icon, press Function again.

    Date Stamp function won't let me change from off to on

    The date stamp will only work when the camera's resolution is set to postcard mode. Press Func/set, scroll down to the bottom, then across to the icon with the clock and mountain. It will say "postcard". Press Func/set again. Then press Menu, scroll down to "Date stamp" and across to select date or date and time, then press menu again

    Date stamp will not show on my camera

    I found the solution o-line. All I had to do was switch the camera to the 'postcard' mode and instant presto, I was able to access the date stamp mode. I want to express my thanks to the (I don't remember who) person who posted the solution.

    Canon A540

    The date will only show up on the picture under a limited set of circumstances on the Canon PowerShot digital cameras, of which the A540 is one. You've probably found the Date function in the menu, but discovered that it was off, grayed out, and skipped over whenever you tried to reset it.

    Date stamp will only work in "Postcard" mode. Press the Function button (labeled "FUNC SET"), then press the down button until you reach the Recording Pixels selection (usually labeled "L", but not always). It's probably the bottom onscreen selection. Use the right or left buttons to select Postcard, then press the Function button again.

    Press the Menu button and scroll down to Date Stamp. Now you should be able to select "Date" or "Date & Time" with the right or left button. Press Menu again and take your pictures.

    I have a canon powershot a560. i would like the date on the pictures. i followed the manual which says turn on date stamp in the menu but it skips over the date stamp so i can't change it. any suggestions?

    When you turn your camera on, there is a screen which appears in the viewfinder. Push the FUNC SET button and then scroll down the column on the left of your viewfinder until you come to the one with the letters M1 M2 M3 S, etc to the right. Then select the one called "Postcard 1600x1200" by scrolling to the right. Your camera is then in the post card mode. You can then go to the date stamp in the menu and your camera will not skip over it any longer! EUREKA!!

    Date stamp

    To get the date/time to be on your photos while taking the picture so you don't have to use the software later do this:

    When in the mode to take pictures, press the round "Function Set" button and change the recording pixels to "Postcard 1600 X 1200". "Postcard" is the only setting that will allow the time/date stamp to be recorded on the picture.

    Then press the "Menu" button and scroll down to "Date Stamp". You can select "Date", "Date & Time" or "Off". You can only do this when your pictures are set to the "Postcard" mode.

    Show the Date stamp on the picture

    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... 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
