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.

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!

Set the resolution to PostageCard (1600x1200).
Many of these cameras have only ONE RESOLUTION setting which allows you to have a date/ date and time stamp on the file, which will print on the viewed or printed photo.

How to do it:
Turn the camera on M mode.
Use the func. set.
go down the menu to the resolution settings. (on the bottom of menu).
Pick only the postagecard (1600x1200) setting.

I also was like you, and had an awful time with a camera I was fixing. I then looked it up on the Net and found an online user manual for the Canon SD 500, which should be basically the same.

SOURCE: I have a Canon Powershot

I don't think there's any way to retrieve the photos without the time stamping. The best you can do is photoshop them. I just looked it up and found the same answer on Yahoo Answers:
http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090626022056AAygb6C
The reason for this is that the camera would have to save an extra copy of every picture to provide this stamp-free function, and they don't do that.
Sorry for the bad news, but if this answered your question, a good rating is appreciated.

How to set date stamp on a a590?


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

I AM TRYING TO SET THE DATE & TIME TO APPEAR ON MY PHOTOS ON MY CANON REBEL T2I


theres no date a time stamp on the photo itself with DSLRs but the meta data is kept on file in the photo so it has recorderd the time and date. depending on what photo printing software your using you can bring up the time and date back on the photo. I have canon photo printer and using the bundled software easy photo print, it allows me to print time and date of the photo. or if you use adobe lightroom you can get the time and date back on the photo. the time and date stamp is more of a compact camera rather than DSLR.

How do i get date and time on photo after downloading using canon A590 IS


Hi,

The only way to get the date and time on the pictures now is to use a photo editing program that has a text option. (e.g. Paint, Photoshop, etc.)

What you need to do if you want the date and time is to use the menu options on your camera to select it. Then when you download them the date and time will be on them.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I received a canon powershot as a gift last year and am just now really starting to use it. The pictures seem fine, but the it seems like I am frequently requested to put in the date and time (i.e. about...


There is a button battery in your camera (CR1220) that remembers the date and other settings when you remove the main batteries. It probably needs to be replaced. It's in a slide-out holder next to the AA batteries (see page 184 in the manual).

You turn on the date stamp by using the photo size settings. Press the Function key and scroll down to the bottom item (usually L). Then scroll over to the Date Stamp icon (to the right of the L, M1, M2, M3, S options). Press the Function/Set key again.
