Will this camera put the date the picture was taken on to the actual picture? I know it shows it on the screen but can it be printed too?

    What make and model camera? All modern digital cameras store the date and time with each picture, but not all of them will put it on top of the image. Your printing software should have the ability to print it on the picture, in the margins, or on the back (depending on the printer, of course).

This camera will not deface your images by scrawling a string of numbers across them. If you're printing directly from the camera to a PictBridge-compatible printer, you can tell the camera to print the date on the pictures by setting the Date option to "Date" or "Date&Time". Refer to the "Printing images directly using a PictBridge Compliant Printer" section of the manual (page 86 in my copy).

My camera shows that the date and time are set up but date does not print on picture when developed. it's a new camera and I just developed my first set of prints and there is no date on any of them. ...


On digital cameras, the data is stored with the filename. Check the back of your prints to see if the dates were not printed there. Most companies do put at least the date information on the back of the prints as well as any other metadata stored with the file produced by the digital camera. Unlike film cameras, which could only record the date by actually putting it on the picture, digital pictures contain metadata that can include things such as people tags, location tags (geotagging), etc. depending upon the capabilities of your camera. The date and time is always stored along with the filename on all digital cameras. If the company that printed your pictures did not include the date on the back of the picture, ask them if they can do it or find another source to print your pictures that can.

If this did not address your issue, please reply with any amplifying information so that I may more accurately address your issue.

I hope this helped!

How to put a date stamp on a picture?


How do I get the date printed on my photo?

I'm sorry, but very likely you can't. The thing is, this was a useful feature on film photos, but the concept has been overtaken by technology, and is no longer relevant. 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; I rotated it so that 'fixya' doesn't scale it. Note that this photo was taken in a different time zone from the one I'm living in. 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.

I need the date stamp on the pictures taken with my Fujifilm Finepix F480 digital camera


Here are pages 63 to 65 of the F480 manual, which describe how to do it when printing with a DPOF-compatible printer:-

If you prefer you could get an EXIF reader to reveal and check the date when each picture was taken, and use a graphics editor to add text for the date on each image, in whatever size, colour, or position you would like. The date would then show on any prints modified in this way, however they were printed.

I wanted to know how do i get the time/date on my pictures when i upload them on to the computer


The time and date (and a lot more) are stored with every picture when taken, and the data remain with the picture when transferred. Just about any photo viewer should be able to show you the so-called "EXIF" data. For example, in Windows Explorer if you simply hover the mouse over a picture it will show the date/time it was taken.

If you want the date stamp to appear when you print, please refer to the documentation for whatever program you're using to print. Depending on the program and printer, you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

How do I place date stamp my photos when printing or download to PC?


As far as I'm aware, digital cameras don't date-stamp the images. Instead they store date and time in what is known as the EXIF information which is a component part of every digital image.
Look at the get-info file in photoshop or iPhoto or any other good image editing/filing program and all the infomation is there. Some cameras even put the GPS coordinates where the picture was taken too.
This is an example of some of the EXIF info taken from 1 image in my computer
Make: Pentax Corporation Model: Pentax *ist DL2 Date Time: 2006-08-06T13:38:49+01:00 Exposure Program: Aperture priority F-Stop: f/4.5 ISO Speed Ratings: 800 Focal length: 43.0 mm Flash: did not fire Metering Mode: Pattern
If you actually want to put the date on the print you'll have to use an image editor so that you can type it on.

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.
