In order to use the date stamp option, the image size (L, M1, M2, M3, S, Postcard) has to be set to Postcard. Press the Func/Set button, scroll down to the image size icon (lower left corner), then scroll over to Postcard, and press the Func/Set button again.

Date stamp will not show on my camera


I found the solution o-line. All I had to do was switch the camera to the 'postcard' mode and instant presto, I was able to access the date stamp mode. I want to express my thanks to the (I don't remember who) person who posted the solution.

Date stamp option in menu will not highlight to change it just skips past it change daye and time


For some cameras this option only works when the camera is set to a specific resolution. Some calle this resolution "Postcard" resolution, and is usually 1200 pixels width. Try setting your camera to its other resolutions to see if this ocrrects the problem. Suggest that you start with 1200 x 900 resolution. Keep in mind that this 1200 x 900 gives only 1 megapixel resolution. Most newer cameras are capable of taking much higher resolution pictures, so this may be a trade-off if you want to use the date stamp option.

Canon sd 750 how to put the date in the picture?


here is the solution:
The date and time can be included on the pictures taken only with the camera in postcard mode. You must also activate the date stamp option in the menu.
To set the camera into postcard mode, press the [Func.] button on the camera, then use the [arrow down] key to go down to the last option in the menu, and there you can choose the [Postcard mode]. Press [Func.] again to exit the function menu.

Date/time stamp control in Menu won't allow access


In many cameras these settings depend on the shooting mode. Did you change the shooting mode? If so, return to your normal shooting mode and the function should be available again.

If this doesn't fix your problem I need to know if you have your camera's user manual. If I can find the solution in your user manual I need to know if you can read the steps in your own manual or if I need to provide you a link to read the manual online.

Canon A540


The date will only show up on the picture under a limited set of circumstances on the Canon PowerShot digital cameras, of which the A540 is one. You've probably found the Date function in the menu, but discovered that it was off, grayed out, and skipped over whenever you tried to reset it.

Date stamp will only work in "Postcard" mode. Press the Function button (labeled "FUNC SET"), then press the down button until you reach the Recording Pixels selection (usually labeled "L", but not always). It's probably the bottom onscreen selection. Use the right or left buttons to select Postcard, then press the Function button again.

Press the Menu button and scroll down to Date Stamp. Now you should be able to select "Date" or "Date & Time" with the right or left button. Press Menu again and take your pictures.

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
