Question about Olympus Camedia C-350 Digital Camera

Printing pictures from D-560Zoom camera

Is there a way to show the "date taken" at the botom of each PRINTED picture?
For each photo printed out, we currently use the "quick view" to see when each photo was taken and then manually write the date on the back to remind us when the photo was taken. After finishing, we then erase the info on the card to get ready for the next batch of pictures we intend to take.
Thanks in advance for your help,
Stan

Check the Manual - not all camera have the date transfer facililty.
However some image editing sofware can do it by picking out of the EXIF data

How to view dates while printing for Lumix DMC - TZ3


The camera will not show the date while taking pictures. The camera can stamp the date onto the photo, but the image size will be reduced. See page 66 of the manual: http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/DMCTZ2.PDF.

However 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.

Will this camera put the date the picture was taken on to the actual picture? I know it shows it on the screen but can it be printed too?


This camera will not deface your images by scrawling a string of numbers across them. If you're printing directly from the camera to a PictBridge-compatible printer, you can tell the camera to print the date on the pictures by setting the Date option to "Date" or "Date&Time". Refer to the "Printing images directly using a PictBridge Compliant Printer" section of the manual (page 86 in my copy).

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. Heh - you probably disagree with me, so let me explain that fully! 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; 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 need the date stamp on the pictures taken with my Fujifilm Finepix F480 digital camera


Here are pages 63 to 65 of the F480 manual, which describe how to do it when printing with a DPOF-compatible printer:-

chas6_1.jpgchas6_2.jpg
If you prefer you could get an EXIF reader to reveal and check the date when each picture was taken, and use a graphics editor to add text for the date on each image, in whatever size, colour, or position you would like. The date would then show on any prints modified in this way, however they were printed.

Does the Olympus FE-230 date stamp the photo when dowloaded to PC? If so, please advise how. I have downloaded some photos and date and time are not stamped on photo. but on the camera it shows date and...


The camera stores the date and time (and a lot more) with every image in what's called the EXIF data. Any competent photo viewer on your computer should be able to show you some or all of this data. If you want the date printed, that's up to your printing program. Depending on the program (and printer), you can have the date printed on the image, in the margin, or on the back. Please refer to the documentation for the program.

We have a Finepix F410. The trouble that we are having is printing off photographs that have the date imprinted. The date is on the camara display and is in the "on" mode. Any thoughts??


The Date and time is saved more or less as an add on to the picture file, not as part of the picture itself. So you're not going to get a date printed when you print the picture.

If you RMB click on the .jpg file when its on your PC, and select properties, it will also show the date. Until you edit it that is.

The only real way around it is to A) Buy a camera which has the option, B) Edit the photo, adding the date prior to printing or C) Write the date on the back as we used to have to do.

Can the date be printed on the photos?


Hi, I found this on the Pentax website.
It looks like you cannot print the date directly from the camera but you can do it using other options.

Nikon D70 data imprint


Sorry for the long answer, but this is complicated.

Some photo editors will allow you to set them up to display the date on the photo.

HOWEVER on all digital cameras:

The date taken is part of the image data that is stored in the file, but not as part of the image. If you print directly from the D70, you can set the date and data to print in one of the menus, but this only applies if you print from the camera. There is no way to actually put the date on the image like there used to be in some film cameras. Since the "picture" is now just a set of computer data bits stored on a card, disk, or other medium, the actual picture is defined by the jpeg standard, which is part of the ANSI/ISO/IEC organization. A camera manufacturer could add an extra bit of hardware to generate some kind of laser mark on the digital sensor in the camera, but I'm not aware of any camera that has this. For sure, the D70 does not.

In the various softwares that you can buy to read the file, the information in the file (like the date) can be interpreted and printed any way the software is programmed, including putting it somewhere on the printed output.
