How do I get the date and time to show up on either printed pictures or on my downloads onto my home computer? I have set the date and time but it doesn't show up on anything, even my cameras own screen.

The date and time plus a lot more information is stored with each picture as "metadata". It can be retrieved in most photo editing programs. After downloading to your computer, if you just right-click on a picture file, the date and time will appear.

I want the date to print on each one of the pictures I take but cannot find it in the manual.


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.

If got an sanyo xacti cg20, and when i load my photo's to my pc it dont show the date stamp on the poto's.just want to know how can i get the date stamp to be on the poto


Hello,
according to the manual for your product
https://wikis.utexas.edu/download/attachments/15045757/Sanyo_VPC-CG20_manual.pdf
you should setup the correct date and time as shown on page 20.
The date and time is recorded into the picture file, but it is not shown onto the picture itself (like in old analog film cameras). You can view the date and time of a particular photo on a computer by right clicking the file icon and choosing 'properties' and then the 'details' tab (I'm assuming you have a microsoft windows operating system). If you want the date to be onto the actual image itself (for printing purposes, I suppose) you have to type it yourself with an image editor.
Let me know if you need further assistance, I hope this helped you, Bye

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.

No date and time printing on the picture


It does not print on the picture. After downloading right click on picture and then click properties and it will show time/date. You can find programs to add time/date programs to add after download.

How to set the date time stamp, so that when i print the photo i could see the date and time


I haven't tried this yet, but the manual says it works on compatible photo kiosks:
Print reservations allow you to save printing data (the number of prints and the date and time information) with
the pictures stored on the card.
With print reservation, you can print out pictures easily either at home using a personal DPOF-compatible
printer or at a photo store that supports DPOF. DPOF is a standard format used to record automatic print
information from digital cameras.

Other than that, can you download with time/date (Not the default setting, it has to be selected) to PC, then copy to media & print from that.
Good luck,
Lindy (I need it to work too)

this the link for the manual for the fuji finepix s5100, if you download the manual to your computer (if is a pdf file) open it and scroll to page 72. It says to set the power switch to play and press the F (function button), then press the left or right until you see the DPOF. then you use the up or the down to select the with date or without date to print to you pictures.
