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.

What do I need to do to make sure my pics are in focus on my Vivitar Vivicam 5024

The biggest thing is to make sure the macro switch is in the proper position. This is the switch on the end of the camera, near the SD card slot. If you're taking a picture of something close to the camera (about five feet or one-and-a-half meters, or closer), set it to the flower position. Otherwise set it to the mountain position. Other than that there's not much you can do to affect the focusing.

While not a focusing issue, also make sure you hold the camera steady. If you're getting blurry pictures it may not be a focus problem. Try setting the camera down on a table (or better yet, use a tripod) and take a shot. Then turn on the self-timer and take another shot (the self-timer gives the camera a chance to stop jiggling after you press the shutter release button). Look at the results to see if the blurring was caused by focus or camera motion.
