How can I set the photo in wnich date can be seen


The date and time (and a lot more) are automatically 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.

Hi I have a Sony Cyber shot digital camera model DSC-S700. I want to know how can I get the date on photographs which I shoot and also is there any manual available for it which I can download.


You can find the manual here:
http://www.docs.sony.com/release/DSCS650_EN_ES.pdf
I'm afraid the camera does not have this date stamp feature. It even says so in the manual, so we can stop searching for it! (Page 28). You may be interested in an essay I wrote about date stamps, I'll paste it here:

How do I get the date printed on my photo?

I'm sorry, but many cameras don't bother to have this feature. The thing is, this was a useful feature on film photos, but the concept has been overtaken by technology, and is no longer relevant. Heh - you probably disagree with me, so let me explain that fully! When you take a photo with a digital camera, the current date and time are automatically stored in the photo file. In some cameras, it will be the same as the file date. Some cameras date the file with the date of download rather than the date of capture, but the date inside the file will always be the capture date. The date of capture is one of the items of EXIF data. You can read about this 'metadata' on wikipedia.

So how does EXIF data fulfill the benefits of the old 'print on film' date? From the point of view of indexing your library and simply not forgetting when the photo was taken, the EXIF data should always be present in the file, unless you choose to erase it. Thus, you will never lose track of the date of capture; if you have the image, you have the date. You can read the date with many tools, and in fact even Windows explorer will tell you the date if you simply hover over the picture. Here's an example; the bubble help shows the time of capture where the picture was taken, (windows shows me the time of capture in my own time zone).

What about legal proof of something? Sorry, you can't really do that any more. You couldn't have done it if you'd printed it on the image, either; it's just too easy to fake. The date of capture is editable, so it doesn't prove anything. If you need proof, get legal advice... in the heat of the moment, include a cellphone in-frame showing the date and time; you could fake that too, but it would be much harder.

Oh, you wanted your dates printed on physical pictures? Find a print shop that will print the EXIF capture date on the reverse of your photo; that way the face of your picture won't be spoiled. There is software that will print index sheets of your images and list their capture dates and times, too. Very often the software that came with your camera, such as Sony's Picture Motion Browser will print the date stamp on the printer from the EXIF data.

Some Canon cameras can add a date stamp just like the old days, some can't do it at all, and some do it ONLY in 'postcard' mode (it's one of the resolution settings). It's interesting that they limit it to this size only when they could quite easily have done it on all sizes, and I think this is to emphasise its novelty value rather than a serious feature, for the reasons I gave above.

I have discovered that there are softwares which can add the EXIF date to the actual visible image, there's one here: http://gphotoshow.com/exif-iptc-watermarker.php and it is billed as a watermarking tool. One of your choices for the input data is the EXIF date within the file. It works, and it's free, but it does nag you to pay from time to time.

The camera does not have a feature for stamping dates onto the photographs, but the information is stored with every picture. Just about any photo viewing program should be able to display it. Depending on the program and printer, you can choose to print the date on the picture, in the margins, or on the back. Please refer to the documentation for whatever program you use to print.

I have a canon sd600 camera. how do I imprint date and time on the photograph


The camera settings menu should give you the choice whether you want to imprint the date or not. However did you know that digital photos have an invisible exif data file attached to them. It gives you information about the camera model, date, time, exposure etc etc. Some photo viewers like irfanview can show you this file and you need not spoil your photos with a date imprint. ( depending on what they are an imprint can be useful or distracting) .

Not getting date on downloaded pictures


The date and time (and a lot of other information) is always stored with the picture file in what's called the EXIF data. By default this is not shown on top of the image since neither the camera nor any photo viewing program knows which portion of your photograph is unimportant and can be obscured by this data.

Any photo editing program should be able to show you this data, probably in a separate window. Most photo printing software likewise can print this data, either on top of the picture or in the margins or on the back. Please refer to the documentation for whatever program(s) you're using.

How do you get the dates on the photos to download?


Well, you don't say what camera you are using but all the data is included with the picture as "metadata". This can be opened by many photo editing programs simply by right-clicking and choosing info.
