Unlike the C643, the C143 does not have a date stamp option. However, it does store the date and time (and a lot more) with each file in what's called the EXIF data. You can choose to print this out when you make your prints. Depending on the program and printer, you can print the information on the image, in the margins, or on the back. Please refer to the documentation for whatever printing program you're using.

Date stamp


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 stamp on I have a Kodak C143


The C143 won't deface your photos by scribbling a string of numbers across the image. However, the date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every image. Any photo editing program will show you this data and allow you to put it onto the image. Depending on the program and printer, you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back. Please refer to the documentation for whatever program(s) you're using to view/print your pictures.

If you can't find it, please feel free to reply to this post, specifying the program(s) you're using.

How do I get the date to print on all the pictures all the time. My model is Easy Share M575


The camera stores the date and time (and a lot more) with every picture, but won't deface your images by putting a string of numbers across it.

Just about any photo viewing/editing program will show you this data. Depending on the program and printer, you can print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back. Please refer to the documentation for whatever program you're using to view/print your photos. If you still can't do it, please feel free to reply to this post specifying the program(s) you're using.

How do I get the camera to print the date and time on the picture image that can be transferred to a print or a digital file


This is weird, actually. I just read your manual, and it seems that the only way to stamp a print is to go into the DPOF settings, and choose the date in the "Print Settings..." menu item. But here's the werid part: it warns you that if you have the Date Stamp function turned on, then you may get the date printed twice... but there's no mention in the manual of any "date stamp" function at all!

I'm afraid that I'm guessing that your camera does not have the date stamp function, and that it appears in the manual by mistake, because they've copied it from the manual for a camera that does. Feel free to search your menu for a date stamp function; if you have one and they forgot to put it in the manual, it will look something like this (this is not your camera):

Also, here's an essay I wrote about date stamping that you might find useful:

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.

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.

Show/print date stamp on my photos


In order to imprint the date stamp on photos, the photo size (L, M1, M2, M3, S, Postcard) must be set to Postcard, and in the recording menu the "Date Stamp" option must be set to Date or Date & Time.

Nikon D70 data imprint


Sorry for the long answer, but this is complicated.

Some photo editors will allow you to set them up to display the date on the photo.

HOWEVER on all digital cameras:

The date taken is part of the image data that is stored in the file, but not as part of the image. If you print directly from the D70, you can set the date and data to print in one of the menus, but this only applies if you print from the camera. There is no way to actually put the date on the image like there used to be in some film cameras. Since the "picture" is now just a set of computer data bits stored on a card, disk, or other medium, the actual picture is defined by the jpeg standard, which is part of the ANSI/ISO/IEC organization. A camera manufacturer could add an extra bit of hardware to generate some kind of laser mark on the digital sensor in the camera, but I'm not aware of any camera that has this. For sure, the D70 does not.

In the various softwares that you can buy to read the file, the information in the file (like the date) can be interpreted and printed any way the software is programmed, including putting it somewhere on the printed output.

Settings for date and time on the camera


By default Olympus cameras do not print or show the date on the images when they are downloaded to a PC. Olympus does not include this functionality because they feel that it detracts from image quality. There is a function of the camera called print order that you can set that it will print the date on the images but this is only if you take the card to a photo processing store. However if you use the Olympus Master software and print the images that you have previously transferred there is a check box in the print setting window that you can add the date and or time to the printed image.
However the computer will only show the date information as part of the photo properties.
