How to activate date/time stamp on nikon d90

The date and time are stored with the picture as metadata, but the D90 won't mar your photos by scrawling a string of numbers on it. Any good photo editing program will let you print the date and time on the picture, in the margin, or on the back, depending on your printer.

How do i get the date off the picture

You need a exif viewer, to see what date you shot the picture. Some cameras allow you to put the date visual in the photo but it must be setup before you shoot. And for these pictures you can't remove the date when you don't need it.
get the program here and load your picture in this program:

Delete date from photo

That is correct. The date setup only affects pictures when they are taken; it will not alter pictures that have already been taken.

If you want to remove the date from a picture that already has it, you have to remove it the same way you would remove any other unwanted object from the picture.

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.

I recently took some wedding photos on my Canon Powershot SX210IS but unfortunately the date has appeared on all the photos. Is there a way that I can remove the date from the photos?

If the date is near an edge, you can use a photo-editing program to crop the picture. In some programs such as Photoshop Elements, you can actually remove the date almost like magic!

How to put a date stamp on a picture?

How do I get the date printed on my photo?

I'm sorry, but very likely you can't. The thing is, this was a useful feature on film photos, but the concept has been overtaken by technology, and is no longer relevant. When you take a photo with a digital camera, the current date and time are automatically stored in the photo file. In some cameras, it will be the same as the file date. Some cameras date the file with the date of download rather than the date of capture, but the date inside the file will always be the capture date. The date of capture is one of the items of EXIF data. You can read about this 'metadata' on wikipedia.

So how does EXIF data fulfill the benefits of the old 'print on film' date? From the point of view of indexing your library and simply not forgetting when the photo was taken, the EXIF data should always be present in the file, unless you choose to erase it. Thus, you will never lose track of the date of capture; if you have the image, you have the date. You can read the date with many tools, and in fact even Windows explorer will tell you the date if you simply hover over the picture. Here's an example; I rotated it so that 'fixya' doesn't scale it. Note that this photo was taken in a different time zone from the one I'm living in. The bubble help shows the time of capture where the picture was taken, windows shows me the time of capture in my own time zone.

What about legal proof of something? Sorry, you can't really do that any more. You couldn't have done it if you'd printed it on the image, either; it's just too easy to fake. The date of capture is editable, so it doesn't prove anything. If you need proof, get legal advice... in the heat of the moment, include a cellphone in-frame showing the date and time; you could fake that too, but it would be much harder.

Oh, you wanted your dates printed on physical pictures? Find a print shop that will print the EXIF capture date on the reverse of your photo; that way the face of your picture won't be spoiled. There is software that will print index sheets of your images and list their capture dates and times, too.

I've gotten a response to my question about why the date won't print on pictures (thank you - the entire MANUAL will prove quite helpful, but...there's more): Why doesn't the date AUTOMATICALLY appear on...

"C'est la vie" I'm afraid. You may be able to buy a camera which has this feature, part of the research process before you buy.

I personally wouldn't want to see the date printed on a picture. It is worth noting though, that each picture file (.jpg) does retain the time and date it was created. So the information you need is stored, after a fashion.

Go to your photo's folder, RMB click on one of the photo icons and select properties from the drop down menu.

It's worth noting thought that if the photo is re-saved or edited and saved. The date will be altered.

Date issue on picture

You'll need to use a photo editing program like Photoshop Elements to erase the date. Is the date close enough to the edge that you can crop it out?

Nikon D80 date imprint/stamp

Dear Bryx,
Unfortunately there is no way to have the nikon d80 print the date directly on the images, but the information is stored to the EXIF data on every image.
