Camera records the date and time each picture is taken, storing this information somewhere in the JPG file, so you can stamp photos after uploading them on a PC. You can use TimeToPhoto software. It can stamp photos automatically in a batch.
Any digital camera records the date and time each picture is taken, storing this information somewhere in the JPG file, so you can stamp photos after uploading them on a PC. You can use Time To Photo software for example. It can stamp photos automatically in a batch.
If your camera has this option it will be in the settings most likely time and date.
I see no mention of your camera type so here is the proccess on a Sony camera. SONY eSupport How to turn the date time stamp feature on or off

Once you've taken the picture, the date stamp is just more pixels, exactly as if you've taken a picture of a sign with the date on it. Just as a sign hides what's behind it, the date stamp covers whatever was there.
You can use a photo editing program to remove it the same way as removing any unwanted object in the picture. You can crop the picture, or use a cloning tool to try to extend the background to cover the date.
The date and time (and a lot more) are always stored with each picture in its EXIF metadata. Just about any photo editor/viewer should be able to show you this data.If you want the date stamp printed, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print. Depending on the program and printer, you can print the date stamp on the image, in the margins, or on the back.
You can stamp the date onto the picture after it's taken (the date will be the date the picture was taken, not the date it was stamped) by using the "Text Stamp" feature. Full details are in the "Text Stamp" section of the manual (page 90 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one at
You're going to have to use a photo editing program like Photoshop Elements to remove the dates from the pics you already took. If the dates are near the edges of the pics, you may be able to just crop them out.Check your manual for instructions for turning off the feature for future pics.
Once the stamp is on the picture it's just like any other element of the picture. You can try to remove it using a photo editing program, the same way you might remove a telephone pole growing out of someone's head, for example. There is no magic feature that will automatically recognize the pixels making up the stamp and recover what was there originally when the picture was taken.
No, you can't while they are in the camera. Date and time are added by the camera when it captures the image, so if you didn't have the time/date stamp on when you took the picture, it won't be there. What you could do is upload the pictures to your computer and add the date and time yourself in Paint, IrfanView or another similar program.
