Embed Date-Canon PowerShot A530

I'm trying to embed the date in my pictures. The manual, p36, says: (Rec)Menu>DateStamp>Date/DateTime. However, when I click down the menu ...RedEye>AF Assist>Digital Zoom>Review>Grid Lines...the date/time icon is below that ...but when I click down once more, the menu returns to the top...RecMenu. It skips the 'date icon', which I guess is the 'date stamp'. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have been trying o fix this problem for a number of months now. The writer seems to think having the date is a bad thing, but I need the date because I am engaged in following the development of seedlings, and having to import the date into each photo. was a drag. To me it's just an option and can be turned off when not necessary.

The only way to have the Date directly on the photo is to change your picture size into postcard mode. do that by hitting function set, and going to the bottom of the options where you choose your picture size... after that do what you described above, however the option will not be greyed out... that will put the pictures directly on the photo... warning!! the reason they make it a pain in the rear is because it will be on all pictures all the time.. no way to remove after!!! you can get several photo programs that will let you insert the date on only the pictures you choose.. Or you can go somewhere other then walmart where the technicians aren't required to have them ready in an hour... yes.. speed isn't always best... and they should be able to choose it in there settings... because the Date is always in your file Data... just not being displayed.. Or go get a little photo printer and print the ones you want... average cost.. 30 cents.. a little more.. but you have the control!! and you don't have to burn and gas while doing so!! Cheers

I have Canon Powershot 520 camera. How to get date and time on the picture?


Hello,
according to page 55 of the user manual you can embed the date and time into the image only when "postcard print mode" is selected. Make sure you have already set time and date as shown in page 22 of the same manual. You have then to select "date stamp" in the "rec" menu then select "date" or date&time" using the right or left buttons, and confirm with "ok". Then you shoot the photos and time and date will be embedded in it.
You can download the user manual here:

How can I get the date to appear on my pictures for downloading ?Canon ixus 75


On my Ixus 70, I can only "embed" the date on pictures when "Postcard Mode" is selected. Press "Func/Set", go down to the bottom icon on the left (sets picture size) then go right to "Postcard" (looks like mountains, will say Postcard when selected) then press Func/set button again. Now press "Menu", scroll down to "Date stamp" and set it to "Date" and press "Menu" button again.

Once embedded, the date cannot be removed later.

How do I get the date to print on the pictures


To set datestamp to appear on your pictures:

Hit FUNC SET (middle of wheel on back)
Hit Right side of wheel to SELECT the mode you would like to have (Auto, Man, etc)
Hit Bottom of wheel to get to bottom of Left Menu on screen
Hit Right side of wheel to SELECT fifth selection (Postcard 1600x1200)

This is the only mode I have found that supports the date stamp on the Canon Powershot SD600.
P.S. Don't forget to set the correct date and time in the screen MENU under the Tools tab!
