Dear jeannesc:

I am assuming that you are using ZoomBrowser EX ver 5.8 which comes with the SD750's Digital Camera Solutions disc. Therefore these instruction will pertain to that version of the program.

You can rename image files using four different naming schemes:

1. Image Name + Number (e.g. Vacation_001.jpg)
2. Shooting date + Number (e.g. 20080601_001.jpg)
3. Name + Shooting date + Number OR
4. Shooting date + Name + Number

There isn't a provision for a time stamp naming convention.

To rename a group of images using one of the above naming schemes simply open ZoomBrowser and point it to the folder that contains the images you wish to rename. For this example let's assume it was your recent vacation photos.

I would utilize either Zoom or Scroll mode to view the images on the main screen. Then follow these steps:

1. Click the task panel labeled "View & Classify"
2. Next click the sub panel "Rename Multiple Files"
3. On the left hand panel click Step 1 "Select images"
[Here you can select any or all images in the folder]
4. Next click Step 2 "Specify Rename Settings"
5. Select the way you want the files to be named and enter
the appropriate settings. Note: If you wish to keep the original
file and make a copy with the new naming scheme make
sure you check "Make Copies of files"
6. Lastly click Finish and your newly renamed files will be there
in the folder.

Hopes this helps.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB

How do you set the time and date so that each photo will have it posted


Firstly, set time and date in the camera:
1. Display MENU.
2. Click on each of the tabs until youfind a dropdown with Date/Time on it.
3. Click on this and follow the prompts.
4. On completion press OK. The date and time will be effective from the time you press OK.
I am not aware of any Canon camera that does enable the entering of time/date on all images.
However, it is recorded in the EXIF data that all digital cameras record with every image.
You can use ZoomBrowser - a software program that comes on the CD with Canon Cameras - to write the date/time on selected images. The date and time written will be the actual date and time the image was recorded on your camera i.e. the date and time you took the photo.
With the image open you should be able to find the time/date option.

A480 canon keeps saying unidentified image and sometimes Incompatible JPEG - do we have a setting wrong?


Hi Have you edited the image outside the camera? If so save the image using Canon's Zoombrowser, this usually corrects the problem.

Date imprint on photocamera


The EOS range does not automatically "imprint" the date/time on the images. Being digital, most of the information can be found in the EXIF data anyway. If you want to print the photos with the date at the corner, I believe ZoomBrowser EX has that function. ZoomBrowser came with your camera amongst a few other CDs (eg Adobe Photoshop Elements, DPP etc)

How do I set the date on a canon RebelXSi so that


Being digital, most of the information like time, date, aperture, shutter and other EXIF data is already captured on the image file. You can find this information on the computer and even while viewing the image on the camera, thus negating the need to have date/time stamped on the image.

However, if you wish to print your photos with date/time on them, you can do so with the application that came with your camera, ZoomBrowser EX.

How can i print date samp in photoz..without using 4x6 photo in my canon poer shot 100s camera..


you can do that if you're doing direct printing (camera to printer) using the caera transfer settings, or if you want to save them to your omputer, you need to download the photos using the EOS utility (comes with the camera) and add the [date & time] stamp from the software settings

Date/time issue on Canon EOS 350D


I was wondering the same when I first got my EOS. Learned later that the digital pictures do not have date/time stamp on the front of the photos like film cameras' photos. Details of digital photos are stored digitally in each image file's EXIF.

If you want to print photos showing the date/time, some software including Zoombrowser EX can do that. In Zoombrowser, select the photos you want to print. In Step 2 (Printer & Layout Settings), in the bottom left, you can choose Date and/or Time and even the colour of the font.

How do I set a Canon PowerShot S3 IS so the date appears on the photo when I download it and/or print it?


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.

Zoombrowser not working- not able to download RAW images to computer


Make sure you turned the camera on. Could be a bad cable. Best thing to get is a usb card reader. Some people report problems of bent pins because of removing and reinserting them in the camera. So be careful there. Re-Install the software that came with it from Canon. Or you can download it from CanonUSA. URL below.
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=314&modelid=14256

choose your OS and download what you need. 
Looks like ZoomBrowser is up to 6.1 now.

Canon Power Shot A520 upload a image to the computer


Dear binghau:

The surefire way to have the date show on your pictures is to set your camera's resolution to PostCard Mode and thus record the date stamp on the picture itself. Your ZoomBrowser software, however can put the date on each of your images. I am using ZoomBrowser EX ver 5.8 as an example. If yoiur version if different it will still have similar functionality.

You can rename image files using four different naming schemes:

1. Image Name + Number (e.g. Vacation_001.jpg)
2. Shooting date + Number (e.g. 20080601_001.jpg)
3. Name + Shooting date + Number OR
4. Shooting date + Name + Number

You may choose to do either method 2 or 4 to get the date.

To rename selected images or a group of images using one of the above naming schemes simply open ZoomBrowser and point it to the folder that contains the images you wish to rename. For this example let's assume it was your recent vacation photos.

I would utilize either Zoom or Scroll mode to view the images on the main screen. Then follow these steps:

1. Click the task panel labeled "View & Classify"
2. Next click the sub panel "Rename Multiple Files"
3. On the left hand panel click Step 1 "Select images"
[Here you can select any or all images in the folder]
4. Next click Step 2 "Specify Rename Settings"
5. Select the way you want the files to be named and enter
the appropriate settings. Note: If you wish to keep the original
file and make a copy with the new naming scheme make
sure you check "Make Copies of files"
6. Lastly click Finish and your newly renamed files will be there
in the folder.

Date / Time printed on image?


There are some third-party software programs that will extract the date/time info from your EXIF data stored in the images and apply them to the image for printing. There are a couple threads here and on dpreview.com about them. You can also use the ZoomBrowser software that came with your A80 to do some limited date/time printing for specific images. It's not the standard format (uses a box w/ drop shadow) but it is another option.
