No. with digital cameras there is no need to do so, as the date and all other details, such as what lens was used and exposure, etc. is stored in the image file as EXIF data.  If you need a date-stamp for legal purposes, I suggest you submit the original image, preferably RAW, from the camera.

How do I put the date stamp on my pictures?


Camera records the date and time each picture is taken, storing this information somewhere in the JPG file, so you can stamp photos after uploading them on a PC. You can use Time To Photo software. It can stamp photos automatically in a batch.

How to make date show on photo with nikon d40


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.

How do I turn the date on? I want it to show on the picture.


The D40x won't deface your pictures by scrawling a string of digits across them. However, the date and time (and a lot more) are saved with each picture in what's called the EXIF data. You can see this data in just about any photo viewing/cataloging program, such as Nikon ViewNX2.
Any photo printing program should be able to print some of this data, either on the image itself, in the margins, or on the back, depending on the printer. If you're printing directly from the camera, look at the instructions in the "Printing Photographs" section of the manual (page 57 in my copy), particularly the paragraph bulleted "Time stamp."

On the picture...how do I turn on the date stamp OR can this be requested when processing is done -Nikon D40 ?


The camera will not deface your photos by scrawling a string of numbers across them. However, the data is stored with the image. Any photo viewing program should be able to show you this information. Depending on the program and printer, you can choose to have the date printed on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

I WANT THE TIME AND DATE DISPLAYED ON EACH PHOTO


If you simply want to see the date and time on the screen, press up/down while reviewing your pictures until you get the view you want.

If you want the date and time printed on the pictures, that needs to be done in whatever program you use to print. For example, Nikon ViewNX has a "Print Photo Information" check box in its Print dialog.

The camera is not going to damage your pictures by imprinting date and time on any portion of the image. It will record that information (and a lot more), but its priority is on getting the image data.

How to make date and time stamp on Nikon d40x


The D40x will not timestamp the image itself.
The date and time are contained in the JPG metadata, which you can access when you look at the picture, or can imprint when getting the pictures processed.

Pasting info on images


I don't think there is an in-camera way to get date/time onto the photos. For the copyright you could use the Image Overlay feature from the Retouch Menu but it's a manual operation, don't see any way to have this appearing automatically as you shoot.
