The camera will deface your pictures by scrawling a string of numbers across them only in the Postcard mode (2 megapixels, throwing away the other 6 megapixels).

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.

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.

I TOOK PICTURES AND THE DATE WAS NOT SET CORRECTLY NOW THE STAMP ON THE PICTURE HAS THE WRONG DATE HOW DO I CORRECT IT ... I DO NOT WAS TO PRINT ANY OF THESE WITH WRONG DATES PLEASE PLEASE HELP!!!!


You cannot change the dates on the taken photos using the camera.
Copy the pictures to your PC, and use a graphic editor to put the new date.
It is a very difficult task to change the date displayed. Therefore insert a button-like graphic on top of the date and put the correct date over that.

My camera shows that the date and time are set up but date does not print on picture when developed. it's a new camera and I just developed my first set of prints and there is no date on any of them. ...


On digital cameras, the data is stored with the filename. Check the back of your prints to see if the dates were not printed there. Most companies do put at least the date information on the back of the prints as well as any other metadata stored with the file produced by the digital camera. Unlike film cameras, which could only record the date by actually putting it on the picture, digital pictures contain metadata that can include things such as people tags, location tags (geotagging), etc. depending upon the capabilities of your camera. The date and time is always stored along with the filename on all digital cameras. If the company that printed your pictures did not include the date on the back of the picture, ask them if they can do it or find another source to print your pictures that can.

If this did not address your issue, please reply with any amplifying information so that I may more accurately address your issue.

I hope this helped!

If i put my camra on self timer win i print the pictures will the time show up on the pictures


The time it took the picture? You want to know if the camera will show the time it took the picture using the self timer?

My answer is Yes and No.

Do you have your camera set to showing the date and time on the pictures now? If you do, then using the self timer would not change anything.

If you do have it set to showing on the picture and you don't want the date and time to show then change the setting on the menu function of the camera and turn this option off.

If you do not already have the camera set to show the date and time, using the self timer option is not going to make it suddenly appear.

Purchased a Kodak easyshare M320 can not figure out how to set


You have two options for getting the date printed on your pictures. One is to set the appropriate option in whatever software you're using to print. The other is to have the camera put it there in the image itself. This means that if the date happens to cover something important, you won't be able to get it back.

To set the camera to put the date stamp on every picture, press Menu, use left/right to highlight Setup, then use up/down to access "Date Stamp".

Canon sd 750 how to put the date in the picture?


here is the solution:
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.

Sony DSC-W55, how to make the date to appear on the picture itself?


This camera doesn't give you the option to have the dates on the pictures. The manual says there is a Picture Motion Browser software that comes with the camera that could do it.
Hope that helps.

Time/Date function for C-770


I dont know if this is any help because I am not sure if you actually want the date and time stamped over the top of the picture or if you just want it to have a record of the date and time with the picture. If the second option is OK then when ever you take a picture with all digital cameras I have owned and the c-770 is my newest it puts a tag in the file so that when you right click on the picture and go into the properties you can select the summary tab at the top and click on the advanced button and it will tell you every setting that the camera was set on to take that picture including the date and time it was taken.
