If you haven't done anything with the card since then, you may be able to recover at least some of the pictures. Do a Google search for "data recovery software" and select a program for your computer and operating system. Put the card back into the card reader, cross your fingers, and run the program.
Next time, don't scan and fix. Personally, I always slide the lock on the card to the write-protect position before putting it into my card reader. Not only does it prevent the "scan" dialog from popping up, it keeps the computer from putting the recycle bin and other garbage onto the card.
Hello eight..... when you format the card you do "erase" the photos but there is hope. Take the camera and the card to any radio shack store and they should be able to recover most of the photos for you. That said, if you start putting ne pictures on the card you will permanently delete the old data as you go. Joe
1.put in auto mode 2. Hit Function set button 3. Where it lets use choose sizefrom L, M1, M2...scroll to Post Card 1600x 1200 4. hit function set again 5. Hit Menu, now you can select time date stamp 6. took me awhile to figure it out
The "postcard" option is not available in the digital macro (flower with a D on it) or stitch assist modes, nor in any of the movie modes. If you're in any other mode, it should be available under the size option (bottom icon on the function menu).
There may be a way to get your images back if you haven't taken any pictures after you formatted your card. Do a google search on "image recovery".
Sorry, don't know why Canon designed it this way, but it is only possible in "Postcard" resolution. This is true for all Canon models.
For those wishing to set their camera to include Date/Time stamp on the photos:
As mentioned, 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. Select the "Camera" menu, then scroll down to the the Date Time Stamp selection to turn it on.
To get the date/time to be on your photos while taking the picture so you don't have to use the software later do this:
When in the mode to take pictures, press the round "Function Set" button and change the recording pixels to "Postcard 1600 X 1200". "Postcard" is the only setting that will allow the time/date stamp to be recorded on the picture.
Then press the "Menu" button and scroll down to "Date Stamp". You can select "Date", "Date & Time" or "Off". You can only do this when your pictures are set to the "Postcard" mode.
