However 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.
I'll assume your picture is already oriented properly (horizontally), i.e. you do not need to rotate it.
There are 2 modes for displaying the photo ...
(1) the ORIGINAL mode - displays the photo in actual photo size, which may result in part of the photo not being visible on the screen, or,
(2) the OPTIMAL mode - which reduces the size and resolution to best fit the screen.
To set image size mode, select the SETUP on the HOME screen display, then highlight and select the DISPLAY IMAGE SIZE button, and go from there.
The first (ORIGINAL) mode is usually the default mode. When you select the OPTIMAL mode, the picture will be scaled to fit the size of the screen ... but you may see "dark" bars (e.g. on top and bottom of the screen) if your picture does not fit the exact screen size.
Check your memory card and see if it has a lock switch on it, if it does and it is locked it wont accept images for overwrite protection , another possibility is a faulty or non-readable card, some memory cards will not work with some devices, sometimes a kingston memory will not work and if you insert a sony or a memorex or any other manufacturer it may work or accept the card, if the camera does not read the card it will not save pics therefore u wont see any images on your PC o in cam playback, try that and see if it works for you, let me know.
You can change the record mode in the camera to shoot at a lower image size of 640X480 by changing from HQ to SQ mode. Page 72 of the instruction manual explains how to change the record mode setting. You can also use photo editing software to reduce the image size down to 640X480 which is equivalent to the size of a 3X5 photo.
You can't. The inphoto digital zoom is just so you can do it. The best thing to do is download the photo to your computer and then use the camera software to zoom/crop etc. Then you can save the altered image.
Use your favourite image editing software in Vista. Or use the software that came on CD with your camera (if it is not the one that runs on XP only).
Anyway as alternative solution you can either shoot photos in lower resolutions (1Mpix for example) and then the files won't be so big. But you will have only the small photo and no large one.
Or shoot as usual, then switch camera to "play" mode and when viewing images on camera, there is a menu option to resize the images - you can resize them to 1Mpix for example.
In the meantime search web for some free image editing software for Vista.
When sending photos as e-mail attachments, the image (file) size should not be too large. Use the included image viewing program called Image Expert to save photos in reduced size. For instructions on installing Image Expert, see "Installing the image viewing program" on page 42 of the Instruction Manual.
1. Launch Image Expert.
2. Choose "Open Image" from the "File" menu.
3. Specify the image you want to reduce, then click "Open".
If the camera is connected using the USB cable, it is displayed as a removable disc. images on the camera can be opened directly by specifying the remove-able disc.
4. Click on "Change Size" in the "Image" menu.
5. Input values at "Width" and "Height", then click "OK". If "Keep Aspect Ratio" is checked, the size is changed without changing the image’s vertical:horizontal ratio.
6. The image is displayed at its new size.
7. Click on "Save As" in the "File" menu to save the image with the new size.
