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.

SOURCE: cannot add date to photos with canon power shot sd1000

I had the same problem. Apparently it only works when you are using "Postcard" resolution.

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check this link for more info.

SOURCE: How do I display date and time for Canon Power Shot?

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.

There is no DIY fix for this problem, and attempting a fix is likely to worsen the problem and cause the camera to shut down. Sorry, but your situation calls for professional repair.

SOURCE: Why are the photos on my Canon Power Shot S3IS not

When my cameras start having a mind of their own there are three basic things I check:
1. How old is the battery? Or has the camera been sitting around for a while? Chances are your battery doesn't have the gusto in it anymore if you answered yes or maybe to one of these. And then the camera stars acting up.
2. Once you've started "researching and resetting" all the possible settings it is good to reset all settings to default settings. Your manual will guide you for this.
3. Last but not least, where you out in humid weather? lake? sea? ocean? boat? handled the camera after coming out of the pool with wet hands?
anything that would have allowed all that to seep into your camera?

How do i get the date off the picture


You need a exif viewer, to see what date you shot the picture. Some cameras allow you to put the date visual in the photo but it must be setup before you shoot. And for these pictures you can't remove the date when you don't need it.
get the program here and load your picture in this program:

How do a I change the date or remove the date from a picture already taken on my Canon Power Shot A1100?


That date is part of the picture once it is taken, the only way to remove it is with software like Adobe Photoshop and you can use the Clone Stamp tool to copy a similar part of the picture and basically cover it up. With some practice you can remove it without being able to tell it was ever there.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Date and time not appear on the pictures


You must have the pictures printed at a Camera Store / Kiosk to have the date imprinted. Very few cams have that feature built in anymore

In my canon Power shot sx100is . how can i get the date on image


Good evening!
Bad news. For the date embedded feature, the image size is FIXED to the 2M (1600x1200) setting with the compression set to Fine.
The only other way I can think of, is if you are printing from software that came with your camera. When you start the software and transfer your photos, there will be a box to check if you want to add a date stamp to your photos.
Sorry about that! Mine does the same thing, only I never put the stamp on mine.
Hope this will be ok!

Putting a date on the pics i take with a canon powershot


Hi Steve, thanks for coming to FixYa.

First, for your model of camera, you do know that you can only Print the date and time the pic was taken on the photo right? It does not embed the date and time data into the image, like some cameras do.
Here is a direct quote from the manual if you want to check my information. You will find it on page 21. "Setting the date and time settings does not cause the date/time stamp to appear on the images."

This may/maynot be what you wanted, either way let me know with a comment. I can describe how to set the date and time in the camera's setup menu for you if you want, and/or I can tell you how to make sure you print the date and time on your photos. Otherwise, have fun with your camera and please rate my solution a fixya.
