So, if you're in the explorer window, you go to "view" and select "choose details", you select the appropriate columns, then click ok, it shows the column headings but no info in the columns? Boot from your XP CD to do a system repair. It won't reinstall Windows if you do a repair, and you won't loose any files or anything like that. It'll just repair the registry and/or system files for example. It couldn't hurt. A word of caution though, make sure you have a recent back up of all of your important files, folders, documents, pictures, and music before trying this.

I need to be able to a date stamp on the pictures I take. I have a Sony DSC H55


How do I get the date printed on my photo?

I'm sorry, but Sony cameras don't have this feature in the way you expect because it can be done better. 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? Since you have a Sony, the software that came with your camera, Sony's Picture Motion Browser will print the date stamp on the printer from the EXIF data.

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.

I have a Lumix DMC Z57 and would like to set it so when I take a picture the date the date will appear on the picture. Is this possible?


HMMM, I know the date is recorded on the digital file when it was taken and what the camera settings were. I know when I transfer mine to the hard drive i organise bu the date taken. so this info is there in the meta data recorded with each exposure. It sounds like you want it displayed on the pictures Too?
In Picasa( the free google software) File info is displayed at the bottom of each phota and a right click on the image and selecting properties reveals the meta data Camera date, date digitised, modified ect.

Can the Canon SX130 IS imprint a date and time stamp on the image which then can be uploaded?


You are actually lucky, most cameras can't do this, but yours can. Here are the instructions:

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.

Some Canon cameras can add a date stamp just like the old days, but 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've gotten a response to my question about why the date won't print on pictures (thank you - the entire MANUAL will prove quite helpful, but...there's more): Why doesn't the date AUTOMATICALLY appear on...


"C'est la vie" I'm afraid. You may be able to buy a camera which has this feature, part of the research process before you buy.

I personally wouldn't want to see the date printed on a picture. It is worth noting though, that each picture file (.jpg) does retain the time and date it was created. So the information you need is stored, after a fashion.

Go to your photo's folder, RMB click on one of the photo icons and select properties from the drop down menu.

It's worth noting thought that if the photo is re-saved or edited and saved. The date will be altered.

How do i get the date the picture was taken to show when downloaded to my computer


In Windows explorer (file explorer where you look at the pictures), if you left click on the column headings you can add headings. There are a lot of headings that can be added. Look for Date Created (usually with video), Date Taken, and just "Date" click those checkboxes and widen your screen so you can see the new columns.

Peace

The date created is wrong on my photos


The file properties will always show the date downloaded, since that's the date the file was created on your hard drive. The date (and time) the photo was taken is stored in the file itself, in what's known as the EXIF data.

I don't know what operating system you're using, so I can't give you specific instructions on how to get the date the photo was taken. On Windows Vista, for example, if you click (not double-click) on a file in Explorer, the date taken will appear in the status area at the bottom of the window. Other programs will have different ways of displaying the EXIF data.

When I download images the date created is the date downloaded rather than the date taken.


The date created is just the date that the file was copied to your computer. If you look at the photo properties (stored in the "exif data" on the image file), you will see the shot date. You can also see this if you right click on the file icon and look at properties. It is usually displayed under the details tab in the section titled "Origin". The file data is stored by the computer and filesystem, but the shot date is actually a part of the file itself.

I want to show the date on every frame as i down load and print without a complecated procedure, [the camera is for daily photo diary]


I don't know if you want to display the date on the image or if you Fuji can even do that but there are multiple programs that will rename the image file so that the file name is the date and time the picture was taken. Additionally many programs, including Vista, will organize your photos by date taken.

Importing photos into I Photo


Sounds like the photos are imported based on creation date. Changing the file name will not change the order in which they are added. iPhoto looks at the files as if you were developing film. The pictures load in the order they were taken (created)
I do not belive there is a way around this unless you can somehow change the creation date before you import.
