If the files are ALREADY tagged with the info then they should remain after transfer. There are no particular steps that you should have to follow. Different programs that you use will ask if you want to transfer that information with the pictures so just watch when you are transfering your pictures. :)

How to set time and date on pentax optio M30


The date and time (and a lot more) are automatically 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.

How do I date stamp photos?


photos are our archives of memories but sometime we do forget the taken date of an image. Sometime we feel a need of exact date and time the image was taken. The available meta data of an image not always give us good result and we need to be somewhat techie to understand that. So, to keep thing simple it will be great idea to put a date-time stamp on it.

photo date-stamp helps you here. It allows you to put date-time stamp in an image as well as a batch of images. You can choose color, font and font size to style the time stamp. It also allows you to chose the stamp position such as Top Left, Top Right, Bottom Left and Bottom Right.....


thanks.

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.

Will the Kodak EasyShare c182 allow me to put a date stamp on my photos when I download them to my computer?


The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture when taken, and the data will remain with the image through the transfer. If you want to print the date on the picture, please refer to the documentation for the program you're using. Depending on the program and printer, you can print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

How do you BURN the date and time on the photo pixels


Canon S3 IS cannot stamp date and time directly on photos. The date and time data is inserted digitally in the photo files as EXIF data which can be read by many software products. Try loading your photos with Picasa for example and you can see the date and time photo was taken.

The date created is wrong on my photos


The file properties will always show the date downloaded, since that's the date the file was created on your hard drive. The date (and time) the photo was taken is stored in the file itself, in what's known as the EXIF data.

I don't know what operating system you're using, so I can't give you specific instructions on how to get the date the photo was taken. On Windows Vista, for example, if you click (not double-click) on a file in Explorer, the date taken will appear in the status area at the bottom of the window. Other programs will have different ways of displaying the EXIF data.

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.

Dates on pictures taken


WOW... No pressure, huh? :-) ALL photos, no matter what kind of camera they are shot on, have a thing called and EXIF file (Also called "Metadata"). You can view this file in Photoshop or just about any other photo editing program. Within the EXIF data is the date and time that the image was shot. It also includes the exposure (shutter speed, apperture and even the mode you shot the photo in...) color space, focal length of the lens at the time the image was made and other useful information. There are also some EXIF programs that will read this information as well. Here is a free one that I found online:

http://graphicssoft.about.com/gi/dynamic/offsite.htm?zi=1/XJ/Ya&sdn=graphicssoft&zu=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.br-software.com%2Fextracter.html

So, REGARDLESS of the date your computer tells you the image is, you can go into the EXIF data and find out the true date and time- assuming that these are set correctly ON CAMERA at the time of the exposure.

There are wireless transmitters for cameras to send images to a wireless network, but most of these are used with Compact Flash cards (CF cards). I'd recommend you either buy additional SD cards, which are pretty cheap, or attach the camera directly to your computer/laptop and download the images and reformat the card afterward. You can get a 4GB SD card for under $30 if you look around. Not too expensive and it's the quickest solution for your tight time schedule.

Removing date & time on photos


Moving the files back to the camera will not accomplish that. The only ways to remove the date from the photos is to either crop it out of the picture or using imaging software to remove/paste over the date
