This will only work in postcard resolution. See pages 35 and 36 of the user manual at this link.

How do I keep date stamp from showing on my pictures taken with a Cannon SD4000?


SnapTouch can apply the date to photos. It is one of the major features of the program.

Information is taken out of EXIF data of the photo file that the camera creates during shooting
. You can also add any comment using SnapTouch and also apply it onto a shot.

Hello, I have a Canon Power Shot sd1000 Digital ELPH. I cant get the time and date stamp to print on the pictures. How can I fix this?


If the pictures are the ones you have shot without time and date stamp, you can't add them by your camera then. You only can add them by your computer.

I am trying to get time and date to appear on my pictures taken with cannon powershot A540


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.

Canon 540 has stopped printing the date on the snap shot. REC-Menu date indicator grayed out


Redefine your camera with defaults, or check if the date is correctly set.

I much cameras, if the date wasnt set properly this deactivates the date on the menu. check it out.

Good luck.

Canon A540


The date will only show up on the picture under a limited set of circumstances on the Canon PowerShot digital cameras, of which the A540 is one. You've probably found the Date function in the menu, but discovered that it was off, grayed out, and skipped over whenever you tried to reset it.

Date stamp will only work in "Postcard" mode. Press the Function button (labeled "FUNC SET"), then press the down button until you reach the Recording Pixels selection (usually labeled "L", but not always). It's probably the bottom onscreen selection. Use the right or left buttons to select Postcard, then press the Function button again.

Press the Menu button and scroll down to Date Stamp. Now you should be able to select "Date" or "Date & Time" with the right or left button. Press Menu again and take your pictures.
