Re: Date Printing

If you have the manual, check page 25 and make sure that your date format is not set for "blank". If you don't have the manual, you can download it here.

How to have date stamp permenantly on

There is no way to have the camera stamp every picture with the date. However, the date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture. The camera can stamp this onto a picture using the "Text Stamp" command in the playback menu, but this will resize large pictures into smaller pictures.
If you simply want the date printed on the pictures, refer to the documentation for whatever photo printing program you're using. Depending on the program and printer, you may be able to print the date on the photo, in the margins, or on the back.

How do I have the date show up on my pictures?

This camera does not allow you to insert the shooting date into the image. However, you can imprint the date while printing using any of several methods.

Set with the camera's Direct Printing Order Format (DPOF) function.

Set [Date] option in the [Print Settings] under the Print menu.

Use the printer's functions.

Use the supplied software.

For further details, see the appropriate manuals. The above was excerpted from the camera's manual, in the Printing subsection of the Getting Started section (page 22 in my copy).

I have a panasonic lumix camera. I wonder how i can print the date on the photo?

To print the date
You can set/cancel the printing with the
recorded date by pressing the [DISPLAY]
button after setting the number of prints.
The date print icon [ ] appears.

•When using the software “SD Viewer for
DSC” in the CD-ROM (supplied), you can
print pictures with the date by setting the
position on the print preview screen. For
details, refer to the separate operating
instructions about PC connection.
•When you go to a photo studio for digital
printing, be sure to order the printing of
the date additionally if required.

Canon A470 The date and time menu keeps popping up every time I switch on the camera despite setting the date and time.

There is another battery next the the AA battery under a little cover marked CR1220. That is the battery size. If that battery is dead, or has never been installed then every time you change the AA batteries the camera will forget the time and date. Try to get one from a specialty store that turns over its inventory quickly and you may find that you will only change this battery every 2 or 3 years.

Better not to post your e-mail on here. Just a suggestion.

The date printing on the photo comes from the software, not the camera. The camera stores the date in the photo file, and then the software either prints it on the photo, or it doesn't. Check your software setup. The good news is that as long as your date is still set correctly in the camera, all the photos you took without the date can still be printed with the date on them.

If you're printing directly from the camera, let me know and I'll run you through the steps for that. I'm just guessing that you're not, though.

Time & Date Stamp

The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every image. Any photo printing program should have an option for printing the date and time on the picture (or in the margin or even on the back if the printer is two-sided).

Suppressing printing of date/time

No, the date/time stamp is now part of the image. The only way to get rid of it is to Photoshop it, but 250 photos... Let me look at my manual, as mine never prints the date/time.

Date / Time printed on image?

There are some third-party software programs that will extract the date/time info from your EXIF data stored in the images and apply them to the image for printing. There are a couple threads here and on about them. You can also use the ZoomBrowser software that came with your A80 to do some limited date/time printing for specific images. It's not the standard format (uses a box w/ drop shadow) but it is another option.

Managing the Time and Date

I have found the answer to the date problem. The date is hidden and will not show up unless you insert it during printing. When printing in ACDsee select print image, then click on the CAPTION tab, and de-select the box the says "insert date at lower RH corner" or somthing like that. Once it is de-selected it will stay off untill you select it again. By the way you can look into the camera with Microsoft explorer, or any program to copy or open the picture. In my case it is "drive G". I opened Photoshop and drilled down into the camera through drive G, and was able to open the photo without any special dedicated program.
