Lumix DMC-TZ5 - Adding Time and Date stamp to photos

  • Make sure you have set the date and time correctly on your camera.
  • View the picture you want to Time stamp, by changing left hand slider to green icon.
  • Press the circular 'Menu/Set' button
  • Press down arrow to get to playback mode in the onscreen menu.
  • Press right arrow to access this menu.
  • Press down arrow until 'text stamp' is highlighted.
  • Press right arrow to select.
  • Choose whether to apply stamp to single or multiple photos
  • Press 'Menu/set' to select photo to stamp.
  • Choose which stamps to add. Date, time, age etc..
  • Press 'Menu/set' again and select the 'Yes' box.

The only problem with this is that it will re-size your photos to about 3m, which can make them grainier if you took them at a higher resolution. Unfortunately there is no other way to time stamp your photos on this camera.

    How do I select to have the time and date on the photos I take. The option for this is not highlighted when I open the menu. Don't know why...

    The date stamp will only work when the camera's resolution is set to postcard mode. Press Func/set, scroll down to the bottom, then across to the icon with the clock and mountain. It will say "postcard". Press Func/set again. Then press Menu, scroll down to "Date stamp" and across to select date or date and time, then press menu again
