The date stamp only works in "Postcard" resolution. Press the Func Set button, then scroll down to the bottom to select postcard resolution.
Then press the menu button. The date time stamp selection should now work. Simply turn it on.

SOURCE: Date stamp

In order to use the date stamp option, the image size (L, M1, M2, M3, S, Postcard) has to be set to Postcard. Press the Func/Set button, scroll down to the image size icon (lower left corner), then scroll over to Postcard, and press the Func/Set button again.

SOURCE: date stamp

the date stamp only works with the image size set to postcard (1600 x 1200), not sure why, but that's the way it is.

The only way to have the Date directly on the photo is to change your picture size into postcard mode. do that by hitting function set, and going to the bottom of the options where you choose your picture size... after that do what you described above, however the option will not be greyed out... that will put the pictures directly on the photo... warning!! the reason they make it a pain in the rear is because it will be on all pictures all the time.. no way to remove after!!! you can get several photo programs that will let you insert the date on only the pictures you choose.. Or you can go somewhere other then walmart where the technicians aren't required to have them ready in an hour... yes.. speed isn't always best... and they should be able to choose it in there settings... because the Date is always in your file Data... just not being displayed.. Or go get a little photo printer and print the ones you want... average cost.. 30 cents.. a little more.. but you have the control!! and you don't have to burn and gas while doing so!! Cheers

Date Stamp


Go to the Menu button, to the top right is what looks like a "tools" tab, go to this. Once you scroll down, you can select "reset all"--this will take off the date/stamp info. if you clicked it "on" previously. Be sure to update all your other settings such as red eye alert/check.
