The date and time (and a lot more) are always stored with each picture in its EXIF metadata. Just about any photo editor/viewer should be able to show you this data.If you want the date stamp printed, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print. Depending on the program and printer, you can print the date stamp on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

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.

Hello,
I wish to have this issue solved too!
It is very useful to have timestamp optional as in most other cameras...

In playback mode, press DISP/BACK to select a playback display format. This will turn the Information display on, which will show you the date/time the picture was taken.

This camera does not have a Time/Date Stamp that actually stays on the picture like some cameras do. Instead, the Time/Date Stamp is included in the Image File Properties, and can be viewed or modified from any Windows PC.

Date and time stamp and only comes when you are shotting and your camera support this faction. When After shotting, the time stamp won't be removed from or add to your pictures by your camera. And it's sorry for that, this Fujifilm JV100 doesn't support this faction

How do I put the date stamp on my pictures?


Camera records the date and time each picture is taken, storing this information somewhere in the JPG file, so you can stamp photos after uploading them on a PC. You can use Time To Photo software. It can stamp photos automatically in a batch.

Is there anyway to get the date stamp on my Sony Cyber Shot photos. My need for this is to upload the photo to a web site with the date stamp on it when sending.


The camera does not have a feature for stamping dates onto the photographs, but the information is stored with every picture. Just about any photo viewing program should be able to display it, and any photo editing program should let you put it on the picture.

No, you can't while they are in the camera. Date and time are added by the camera when it captures the image, so if you didn't have the time/date stamp on when you took the picture, it won't be there. What you could do is upload the pictures to your computer and add the date and time yourself in Paint, IrfanView or another similar program.
