Question about Canon PowerShot A530 Digital Camera
I can't get the date on the picture. It used to be there all the time and now nothing. What am I doing wrong?
To get the date imprinted on pictures, the size (L, M1, M2, S, Postcard) has to be set to Postcard, and the Date Stamp option has to be turned on in the Recording Menu.

SOURCE: Wrong date and/or time
Whenever you change the batteries in your camera you need to reset the clock. You can use the LCD screen Settings menu or set the camera's clock from your computer.

It does not print on the picture. After downloading right click on picture and then click properties and it will show time/date. You can find programs to add time/date programs to add after download.

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.
