The date is held in the EXIF data in the photo file, you can view that on your PC. Some shop photo kiosks let you print this on the photo. As far as I am aware there is no setting in the camera to get the date to print on the photo like 35mm cameras often did.

I cant figure out how to zoom. Every time I zoom in and take a pic it automatically takes the full shot instead of what i was shooting upclose. I have never used a camera like this before.

SOURCE: Canon SD 1000 time and date stamp on downloaded photo

You can download the manual from the link below: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=323&modelid=14901 From page 37 of the manual it looks like you can only select the time stamp in "postcard" mode. Also the date & time need to be set in the camera first. Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

SOURCE: I AM TRYING TO SET THE DATE & TIME TO APPEAR ON MY PHOTOS.

you can only do date and time stamp under function button go to bottom where you can change size of pictures -go to right to W or wide-this is only setting you can do date time stamp on-when you change pic size and go back to menu you will see it highlighted and you can now turn it on-equals about a 2-3 megapixel size picture only-also just leave settings alone and have printer add it-date and time our always in pic data and most printers can add it

SOURCE: cannot turn date stamp on in menu settings.

Date stamp is only possible when you set the resolution (picture size) at "Postcard 1600x1200" option, if the date stamp is set to "Date & Time" or "Date" option

Date stamp


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.

I want Date & time stamp on pictures


Hello and Welcome
To set the date and time stamp on pictures, Follow the given instructions:
  • Power on the FUJIFILM FinePix J28 digital camera and wait for the hardware to finish running through its start mode
  • Press the "Menu" button on the rear of the device, then choose "Setup."
  • Select "Options," followed by "Date." This brings up the date display. The display blinks as it has not yet been set.
  • Push the top button on the control display to advance the first number in the date. Once you have the correct number selected press "Enter" and repeat the process for all the numbers. When the date is set the time information appears. Follow the same procedure to set the time. Press "Enter" to accept the changes. Now every picture captured with the FUJIFILM FinePix J28 will save the date and time to the pictures

Time and date display


I have the same camera and the only way to do this is to first, Make sure you have set the date and time correctly on your camera. Take a picture or View picture you want date & time stamped. Press the circular 'Menu/Set' button Press down arrow to playback mode Press right arrow on 'text stamp' 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 'Yes' in box. The only problem with this is that it will resize your photos to 3m, which can make them grainier if you took them at a higher res. Gillian
