Question about Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera

How do I set up a Canon G9 to display date and time on image.

How do I set up a Canon G9 to display date and time on photos that I have taken?  I have not been able to find instructions in the owner's manual.  I probably overlooked it.  I could probably figure it out if you give the page number or cut and paste the answer from the manual into your response.   Thanks.

Press the "play" button to view your photos. Then, press the "display" button until the time/date show up.
If you want them to print out the time and date on the photos, you do this in the "Print Settings" menu. Just press the "menu" button, and then go to the second tab that looks like a printer, then scroll all the way down to "Print Settings..." Press the "Func/Set" button, and then scroll down to where it says "Date: On/Off". Use the directional buttons to select "On" or "Off" and then press teh "Menu" button again.

Want to know if my G9 has a date stamp option


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.

How to set date stamp for canon ixus 860is


:
The date and time can be included on the pictures taken only with the camera in postcard mode. You must also activate the date stamp option in the menu.
To set the camera into postcard mode, press the [Func.] button on the camera, then use the [arrow down] key to go down to the last option in the menu, and there you can choose the [Postcard mode]. Press [Func.] again to exit the function menu.
dsc_include_date01_tcm13-520510.jpgTo set the date and time stamp, press the [Menu] button and then use the [arrow down] button to go to the [Date stamp] option in the menu. You can set this to "Date" or "Date & Time". Press the [Menu] button again to exit the menu.
dsc_include_date02_tcm13-520511.jpgBe aware that if you take pictures with this option enabled, the Date and Time cannot be removed from the pictures at a further time. It will permanently appear on the picture.

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.

Can I export photos from iPhoto back into the Canon G9 PowerShot?


No, you can't.
You only can transfer the pictures back to the camera if the pictures were taken by the same model cameras, plus the pictures were not modified.

I'm unable to download photos from the disk.


You may be saving the images in the RAW format, which requires matching software to read. Most kiosks can't read them. If this is the case, switch back to jpeg format.

For a Canon Powershot S51S camera, how do you display the date on the photo?


You want to go to the SETUP menu and select the PRINT menu. Then select the PRINT SETTINGS. Then choose the SET button. You can now use the arrow buttons to scroll up and down until you see the DATE option. This is where you can set this option to ON (which will add the date to the photos you want to print).

You can see the exact instructions on page 137 of the User's Manual here from the Canon website. http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/0900009893/PowerShotS5IS_CUGad_EN.pdf
