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 prevent the date and time from being available on the camera data?

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. If you don't want this data attached to the photo, you'll have to use a photo editor capable of altering this metadata. With most programs you won't be able to remove the data completely, but you should be able to set it something like midnight on January 1, 2000.

How to turn off time/date stamp on finepix s1850

Seeing the Date When Previewing images
  • The camera records the date and time of each photo in the metadata attached to each picture. You have the option to see the date and time when when the camera is in "Playback" mode, which allows you to preview your images on the screen. When looking at your pictures, use the "Disp/Back" button to include text with your pictures. The date and time will appear along the bottom of the image.

Printing the Date on Pictures
  • Users can include the time and date on their prints from the "Mode" menu by choosing "Print Order" with the "With Date" option.

If got an sanyo xacti cg20, and when i load my photo's to my pc it dont show the date stamp on the poto's.just want to know how can i get the date stamp to be on the poto

according to the manual for your product
you should setup the correct date and time as shown on page 20.
The date and time is recorded into the picture file, but it is not shown onto the picture itself (like in old analog film cameras). You can view the date and time of a particular photo on a computer by right clicking the file icon and choosing 'properties' and then the 'details' tab (I'm assuming you have a microsoft windows operating system). If you want the date to be onto the actual image itself (for printing purposes, I suppose) you have to type it yourself with an image editor.
Let me know if you need further assistance, I hope this helped you, Bye

I need the date to show up on the picture itself. Can I do that with this camera?

Hi Tiger
Most digital cameras store the date and time of the photo in an invisible file attached to the image called the EXIF data, and this can only be read by a suitable piece of software. I don't know of a digital camea that will put the date acually on to the image.

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) .

theres no date a time stamp on the photo itself with DSLRs but the meta data is kept on file in the photo so it has recorderd the time and date. depending on what photo printing software your using you can bring up the time and date back on the photo. I have canon photo printer and using the bundled software easy photo print, it allows me to print time and date of the photo. or if you use adobe lightroom you can get the time and date back on the photo. the time and date stamp is more of a compact camera rather than DSLR.

Vivicam ..time and date

There will be a setting where you tell it to add the time and date by choosing ON. This is different to where you set the time and date. Generally it is within your menu and may be with ""setup menu"" and called "date stamp". If you set this to "on" it should do the trick.
